Happy Monday! What a great weekend we had at C3! The sermon Matt preached this past weekend was inspirational and challenging. I loved the example that he pointed out – the people of Israel had to shout praises to God before the walls came down. It’s easy to praise God after He has done something for us, but it is more difficult to praise God before. So this week spend some time praising God.
Praising God is different from thanking God. Praising God means we talk about all the things that make Him so great. Don’t you just love it when people talk about what you are good at and what they love about you? God is the same way. He loves to hear of the great things He has done in your life. So, let’s spend some time telling Him why we love Him so much.
I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord;
let all who are helpless take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness;
let us exalt his name together.
Instead of thinking about the things you can’t or don’t have praise God for what you do have!
Write out praises to God.
You guys are awesome!
