PRAISING GOD IN DIFFICULTIES

NO MATTER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES you face as a couple, nothing will refresh and energize your communication with God like praising Him.  A few of the many Scriptures that praise God also to encourage us to express our admiration of Him.  Consider the following psalms:

*  “And my tongue shall speak of your righteousness and of Your praise all the day long.”  Psa.35:28

*  “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.”  Psa.100:4

*  “Praise the Lord!  For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful. (Psa.147:1)

Over the years we have learned to praise Him for:

*  Who He is—He is God almighty!

*  What He has done for us in the past, calling to mind in prayer His acts on our behalf.

*  What He has promised us in Scripture, including His pledge to never leave nor forsake us.

When we acknowledge God’s greatness in our lives, we remember who He really is and His great love for us.  We like what one couple told us: “We’ve learned to praise God, in the hard times and to call to Him and to lift His name high even when the circumstances look impossible or difficult.  “As a result, we’ve learned that praising God lifts us out of our challenges and realigns our hearts with His.

The next time you face a difficult circumstance, pause and begin to praise God for what you are facing.  Ask Him to fill you with His spirit and honor Him in the midst of your difficulty.
