What’s the last thing we want to do when facing trials? Where is the last place we are usually going whenever hardship strikes in our life? Who are we turning often as a last resort to come to?
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8) It doesn’t matter how helpless or low you feel. Block out the negative thoughts that come to your mind. Don’t let the feeling of unworthiness keep you from coming to the LORD. You could never sink too low nor run too far away from the LORD. Now lift up your hands and praises toward Him.
If you don’t know what to say start by reading and saying the precious words of Psalm 150
1 Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
2 Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp!
4 Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
5 Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!
Each time, after reading this Psalm, I still hear my former pastor asking us, “Do you feel your pulse? Are you breathing? Praise the LORD!”
Praising the LORD is so healing — for your body, mind, and soul. Take time to praise Him today.
