When we begin to think about how good The Lord has been to us we are in awe of His graciousness to us.  It is out of this awesomeness of God that we want to praise Him in a variety of ways. There are many different ways that we can praise The Lord, and there are many different expressions that we use to give Him the glory.  There are times when it is the clapping or the waving of our hands that we are expressing our praise to God, and there are other times when we are shouting Hallelujah unto Him, and other times it is a dance of praise that we express our praise unto The Lord.  The most powerful expression that we can give unto The Lord is when say yes to Him.  Our yes is the greatest praise we can offer to God, and when we offer the praise of yes God is pleased.  

The Scripture reminds us that, Isaiah praised God with His yes, when he heard the voice of The Lord saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us?  Then he said, here am I; send me.  I encourage you today to praise God with your yes.  Yes to His will, and yes to His way.  Praise Him with being available to go where He wants to send you, and to do what He wants you to do.  Are you willing to go where He sends you, and are you willing to do what He tells you to do, even when you are not sure where it is going to lead you.  Your yes to God is your praise to Him.  I will praise God with my yes, and go where He sends me knowing that He will never lead me where He cannot keep me.  

Since I am praising God with my yes I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord help me to continue to praise you with my lips, hands, heart, and my yes.  In Jesus Name Amen.
