2 Samuel 22:1-23:23; Acts 2:1-47; Psalm 122:1-9; Proverbs 16:19-20
What’s your song? Every believer ought to have a song to sing about God’s wondrous works. David had quite a song to sing. There is something about praise that helps us in our challenging times.
When things are tight, it may seem easy to complain. But, you should have a song in your heart that is ready to change the atmosphere from negativity. Why should we praise God? Because it reminds us of the source of our strength. Praise is not about any person; it is about God and what He has done! Humans need to be reminded repeatedly to trust in God and not ourselves. Praise repositions our focus on God and away from us.
Praise also defeats the schemes of the enemy. The devil pressures us so that he can get us to say something that will hurt our future. But, when we sing forth praise instead of speaking words of doubt, the devil’s plans are thwarted. Always have a song in your heart!
