Worthy Of The Praise
“From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised!” Psalm 113:3 (ESV)
There is not a day or time when we should not be able to praise The Lord. The Lord has done some great things in our lives, and all of them are worthy enough for us to praise The Lord. We will face some difficult times in our lives, but even through the difficult times that we face The Lord is still worthy of our praise.
“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.” Jeremiah 20:9
Jeremiah is called the weeping prophet, because it seems that he was always crying out to God for the people. Jeremiah did not have an easy task as prophet, he did not get to be the one that was prophesizing prosperity all of the time and people were ecstatic to hear the prophecy God gave to Jeremiah.
Withstand And Stand
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.” Ephesians 6:13 (ESV)
Life has a way of doing its best to try to knock us down. There are times when it feels like everything is coming against us at the same time. Storms, trials, tribulations, trouble, heartache, heartbreak, and disappointments all seem to show up at the same time.
Rejected But Blessed
“The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.” Psalm 118:22 (ESV)
It does not make a difference how strong a person may be, rejection is not easy for anyone to take. The feeling of rejection can leave someone to a place of never trying anything again. Rejection from a job, a school, a loan, or anything is hard to take, but we should never allow rejection to be the final say over our lives.
