Praise God

Scriptures to reflect upon:
Colossians 3:17
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Psalm 44:8
"In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise Your name forever."


A couple of months ago a friend on Facebook wrote on her status update: “I’m a believer in God, but why does someone have to say ‘Praise God’ after everything they do?” And the utterly disgusting and ugly comments that followed became something that triggered a faith in me that I didn’t even know existed. Little did she know that her status criticizing Christians who need and want (and have the right, I might add) to say “Praise God” would start something amazing in my life.

See, she may be a believer in “something,” but she’s surely not a believer in God or Jesus Christ. If she were a believer, then she would know why we say Praise God after just about anything good that happens in our lives. It could be as simple as a great parking spot. Praise God! Or finding a great deal on something we’ve wanted for a long time. Praise God! Or a beautiful day. PRAISE GOD!

Miracles. Sun shining. Warm days. A smile. That first morning iced coffee. A prayer answered. A friendly hello. A long lost friend finally found. A healing. A new friendship. A deliverance. A good day with family. Praise God!

The other night was unusual for us. Tavin (our 2-year old son) was up pretty late and we were driving his grandma home. It was dark out and I thought nothing of it. Tavin is obsessed with the moon; and since finding such a fascination with the moon, he has yet to see it beaming in the night sky. Driving home that night, he shouted in pure delight, “THE MOON!”

Praise God.

Non-believers don’t get that there are so many things in our everyday lives that are worthy of praising God. They don’t feel the need to say it because they find comfort in believing in only themselves, giving themselves the credit for anything good. Yet somehow, when things go bad, God is at the forefront of it all.


NOTE TO SELF: It doesn’t have to be out of the ordinary. It just has to be good. And if it’s not good…praise Him anyway. We praise God simply…because.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
