Thought to share: Do you need ME? Then praise ME. Praise creates a pathway for MY Presence in your life. Praise creates a highway for ME, the King of Glory, to enter in. Complaining, criticizing and negativity only blocks MY entrance into your circumstances, preventing ME from being in the center of your needs. So, open your mouth and praise ME – celebrate Who I AM and what I can do. Revel in MY willingness to be all you need. And as you do, you’ll see ME entering into your needs.
Psalm 86:12 (TPT) With all my heart and passion I will thank you, my God!
I will give glory to your name, always and forever!
Psalm 63:4 (TPT) Daily I will worship you passionately and with all my heart.
My arms will wave to you like banners of praise.
Philippians 4:4 (Msg) Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him!
Acts 16:22-26 (TPT) A great crowd gathered, and all the people joined in to come against them. The Roman officials ordered that Paul and Silas be stripped of their garments and beaten with rods on their bare backs. After they were severely beaten, they were thrown into prison and the jailer was commanded to guard them securely. So the jailer placed them in the innermost cell of the prison and had their feet bound and chained. Paul and Silas, undaunted, prayed in the middle of the night and sang songs of praise to God, while all the other prisoners listened to their worship. Suddenly, a great earthquake shook the foundations of the prison. All at once every prison door flung open and the chains of all the prisoners came loose.
