Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God. – Luke 1:64

Danny laid in a coma in the hospital bed. His wife, Sheila, by his side continually talking to him to let him know she was there. She would pray over him. Friends and family would come and gather in prayer. The doctors were unsure of the outcome. The accident caused brain damage, but it was hard to measure how much. If he did come out of the coma, he may be unable to do many of the things he did before.

A few days later, Danny opened his eyes. Sheila took his hand and said, “Danny, how are you feeling?”

Danny looked at her and smiled, “I praise God for his goodness. I heard many of the prayers said, but I couldn’t respond, but God did.”

When we go through struggles in life, is the praise to God on our lips? Even when we don’t know the outcome of our struggle, we do know that God responds. The one who loves you and has total control will help you through—and will carry you if necessary.

Prayer: I praise you, Lord, for your continuing goodness. I pray that praise will always be on my lips for you. You are so worthy. Amen

Faith Tip: Struggling today? Start praising God and see how he responds.
