PERSON OF PRAISE
Do you really want to please God? Let me share with you one sure-fire way:
In all circumstances, praise Him. Praise Him not after you survive a difficulty but in the midst of it. Praise Him not when battle has been won but even when the battle is still fierce. Praise Him even when the past is regretful, the present unsatisfying, and the future uncertain. Praise Him, not tomorrow, but today. Not when your situation is better but even when it is at its worst. Praise with your words and with your life.
Bear this in mind: To praise God is to please Him.
And when we please God, He brings victory into our lives.
The Bible says:
“For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory.” (Psalm 149:4)
We are so used to thanking people after they have done us good. It is a different thing with God. We thank Him even before He brings victory into our lives.
He might answer us in a way different from our expectation. But if we praise Him in all circumstances, He will surely grant us victory in the way that is perfect for us.
This week, decide to be a person of praise. And before you know it, you will also be known as a person of victory!
