Sunday Words of Encouragement June 7, 2015

We had a lovely Sunday service. During Sunday school we saw video lessons from Perry Stone entitled: Yom Hakeseh - The Mystery of the Hidden Day. One of the sources he gave was Malachi so I read the who book as it is so interesting!

Pastor’s message was entitled Praise Instead of Heaviness. Pastor encouraged us to put on the “garment of praise instead” of heavy spirit. Isaiah 61:1-3. God wants us to petition Him for help but we need to learn to move from petition to praise and worship. [Pastor’s wife shared a word with us yesterday from Max Lucado’s book Before Amen. He says our prayers should be as simple and profound as “God you are a good God. I need your help.”]

Pastor explained that there is a proper protocol in greeting national leaders like the President or the Queen. The proper protocol for greeting God is praise. Praise brings us into His presence. 2 Chronicles 5:13-14. We should learn, as shown by many Biblical examples, to choose to praise in all circumstances. Acts 16:25-26. Psalm 34:1-5.

This song fits the message!
Let it Bring You Praise by Matt Hammitt
Verses for Today:
Psalm 150:1-6 NIV
1 Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.

I have so very much to give thanks and praise for. Hopefully, even if I had little, but I had breath, I would still give thanks and praise to my creator and redeemer.
