Turn to Praising

 LORD, you are my God
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done wonderful things,
things planned long ago. – Isaiah 25:1

When will the suffering end? This is a thought I have at times when it seems like heart-breaking circumstances are happening everywhere. My prayer list seems endless as I learn of needs through media such as television, radio, internet and phone. When it starts to get overwhelming, I remind myself to stop.

Stopping from the cycle of needs all around to refocus on who God is will bring us into a concert of praise. Praising God happens all the time around the world, and if we enter that praise, we join in on what’s already happening. The Spirit of God will lift us up out of the “circumstances” into his throne room of grace. Our hearts will rejoice in knowing the great love and faithfulness of Jesus.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for being in control of all things. I pray that I remember your perfect faithfulness in all circumstances. Amen

Faith Tip: Feeling stressed? Begin to praise God and allow the Spirit to take over.
