Since Thanksgiving is coming up this week in the U.S., I wanted to share a message I posted last Thanksgiving titled:
The Reason Behind Praise
I recently pulled out my journal I have been writing in since 2002. As I was flipping through it, I noticed on every page I wrote about some trial I was going through at the time. Recalling some of the trials brought me to tears, and I wanted to go back and tell myself, “Look ahead! Stop worrying! It works out on the next page! God got me through it!”
If we could write down our problems today and then flip the page ahead and write down: “It all worked out. God got me through it.” how much more would we find ourselves praising God instead of worrying.
…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
I used to wonder why God tells us to praise Him. I remember thinking, “Does God say that because He needs our praises?” But I knew in my heart that wasn’t the reason. I knew it had to be for our benefit.
In this article Amanda details the importance of praising God in our lives even when the chips are down so to speak. To finish reading this article, please head over to http://ptl2010.com/2012/11/19/thanksgiving-the-reason-behind-praise/
