Did you know that the God we serve is a loyal God?
How do you treat a friend who is loyal to you? Do you spend more time with them? Do you hold them tighter and love on them more because loyalty is rare? We tend to want to hold onto those who are loyal and faithful to us. But, how loyal are we to God?
He is loyal to us even when we are not loyal to ourselves. He wants us to depend on Him each and every moment of our life. This scripture caught my eye because it says, "In His perfect faithfulness, He has done wonderful things." God has a plan for us, but are you exalting and praising His name before it happens?
"When praises go up, blessings come down."
“Are we sending the praises up?” I have learned that praise can shift your entire atmosphere but you have to set the atmosphere. Think of all the times God has been faithful in your life. Think about all of your needs and wants that He has taken care of. Think about it, these are things that He planned long ago, knowing you would need it before you were born. Our God is faithful.
Challenge yourself to shift your atmosphere to an atmosphere of praise and exalt God's name every chance that you get. Praise Him before you get the blessing and after. Never stop praising Him.
Let Us Pray
Father we bless your holy and righteous name. We exalt you for who you are. We glorify your name because your name is the name of all names. We thank you for knowing our situation and already having a game plan. We thank you for the friends that you have removed from our lives who served as distractions. We thank you for removing things out of our way that could harm us. We thank you holy spirit for leading us in the right direction and guiding our decisions. We take this time out not to ask for anything but to praise you for what you have already done. Let us rest in your promises and let our confidence rest in your faithfulness. Help our belief so that we know in our minds that if you did it before then you can do it again and you can do it bigger and better than you did the first time. Give us a desire to get lost in worship with you. Let us crave your spirit and your will for our lives. We lay down our will and we pick up yours saying God we want it your way. We love you, we bless you and we thank you for being God.
In Jesus name, we pray, Amen.
