Hebrews 13:15 “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
The most powerful praise to The Lord is the praise that comes forth from times of adversity. This comes forth from the hurting soul in “spirit and in truth,” as he or she worships from the depths of the troubled soul. This is the type of worship Father is looking for......……“But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship Him.” John 4:24
This Praise glorifies Father for Who is the Mighty Deliverer and Healer, Who is familiar with all our grief and sorrows……”He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” Isaiah 53:3.
This worshiper cries out to the only One Who is capable of pouring out the anointed healing balm. This healing is permanent. It then brings out precious fruits and a testimony to glorify the Healer…Christ Jesus.
If you are in pain and hurting from within, offer the sacrifice of praise to the One Who sees and knows the source of your pain. He also sees the end of it. The end product will also produce a beautiful “Pearl.” A “Pearl” that was cultured from deep within. His reflection on you, His Pearl will cause you to shine. That brilliance and bright light will drive away your enemies. They will flee seven times, “The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.” Your “Elizabeths” will be drawn to you and together you will glorify the Master Jeweler…..Precious Jesus…..Jehovah Rapha….the God Who heals.
For those who are hurting today. May Jehovah Rapha pour His healing balm upon your wounded soul as He binds up your pain. Rest in Him until the storm has passed over. Whatever your situation, let us kneel before Him in praise and adoration…..Cast your cares at His feet, worship Him and leave them there.
Be blessed today as we worship the Father in spirit and in truth.
