Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the Fruit of our lips, Giving Thanks to His Name.
Lifting up your hands and thanking God is spontaneous when you’ve just received a wonderful blessing-
But there are times when you don’t feel like lifting up your hands to thank and praise God, yet we are called to do it.
Maybe you have felt discouraged lately. Perhaps it looks as though everything is going wrong for you and you feel like your life is a mess.
First of all let me remind you That God is with you!
Secondly, the best thing you can do is make a conscious decision to lift your hands and thank God for being with you in whatever situation you might be faced with-
Release begins when you open your mouth and begin to praise Him- even though you really don’t feel like doing it.
In the midst of any situation you are going through, praise Him that He is your righteousness! In spite of all the mistakes you have ever made. Thank Him that He is your Prince of Peace, and that His peace will arise in you and still the storms in your life.
God is blessed and appreciates such times when, despite feeling discouraged, you offer a Freewill Thanksgiving Offering to Him.
When you choose to thank God for His unfailing love, His faithfulness to deliver, His Power to protect and provide; even when you don’t see the blessings yet, before long you will find yourself experiencing and enjoying the blessings!
So lift your hands and praise the Lord, for He is good, and His mercy endures forever!
love in His Grace, Pastor Joe Saboick
