Day 4: Praise

Praising God is difficult when we are facing problems and challenges in our life.  In 2 Chronicles 20:21, as God’s people were preparing to fight, “Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out to the head of the army saying, ‘Give thanks to the Lord, for his Love endures forever.’”

Praise paved the way for victory. The Bible says, “As they began to sing and praise,” the Lord began to defeat the enemy. The people’s posture of praise released God’s power in the midst of the battle!

One of the most important things we can do is spend time thanking and worshiping God. All too often we focus more on our problems than on God. Directing our praise to God is powerful because it completely changes our perspective on the circumstances we face.  Nothing is too hard for God!  
 
Spend time today praising God for who He is, what He’s done through Jesus and what He promises to do.    

Scriptures

2 Chronicles 20:20-21 ESV
And they rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. And when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be established; believe his prophets, and you will succeed.” And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say, “Give thanks to the Lord, for his steadfast love endures forever.”

Psalm 68:1-10 ESV
God shall arise, his enemies shall be scattered; and those who hate him shall flee before him! As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away; as wax melts before fire, so the wicked shall perish before God! But the righteous shall be glad; they shall exult before God; they shall be jubilant with joy! Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the Lord; exult before him! Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. O God, when you went out before your people, when you marched through the wilderness, Selah the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain, before God, the One of Sinai, before God, the God of Israel. Rain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad; you restored your inheritance as it languished; your flock found a dwelling in it; in your goodness, O God, you provided for the needy.
