In Praise of our Father When Times are Hard

How is your day going today? Good, ok, maybe just plain bad?

It is easy to praise God when all is well, no problem to lift up your voice and worship. How about when your day is awful? How about if you are having the worst day ever…or at least since the last time your day was this horrible? Can you worship now, or give God praise?

If you are having a bad day, no matter how bad that day is…the Lord of all creation, He cares for you and is with you. Yup…the ruler of heaven and earth is concerned about how you feel. Amazing isn’t it? All that goes on in this world and the Lord God knows all about your bad day. Hmmm…

So instead of feeling helpless, instead of trying to lift yourself out of this blah feeling, this rotten day…offer up praise to your Father in heaven. Pray to Him and thank Him for your day, all of it. Yes you read that right…thank God for even the bad things. Thank Him in advance for lifting you up and restoring you to a better place in Him.

Doing this is not easy, in fact it is very hard. Doing this has a reward…you will feel better. As hard as it is to do this, you need to…right now.

I know…I just did it myself. God will hear you and lift you up when you honor Him first.
Thank you Lyn….

  1. As I tell the people online that I help for GMO and Harvest, 1 Peter 5:7. I may be putting that scripture in for new believers so they know this and know where to find it, but it works no matter how long you have been with the Lord.

  2. Amen to this.
    This is a reminder and a very encouraging piece….in ALL things give thanks. It really helps us focus on God instead of the problem. What comes to mind is the saying…don’t tell God how big you problem is, tell the problem how big your God is! (that’s praise) 🙂

    Blessings

  3. Amen! Praise is the best remedy for ‘minus’ feelings. Praise puts everything in the right perspective.
    I remember a song sung by visitors at Church some time ago – ‘The God of the mountains is still God in the valley”
