Why Praise?

Why should we praise God? I am going through, and I am suppose to start saying thank you for this heartache and pain. My son is seriously ill yet you people expect me to just praise the Lord!! My finances are shot, I don't think that I will ever get out of debt. Why should I praise him? I can't even smile right now let alone sing and say thank you. All I seem to do is cry. Why?
My boyfriend left me for another women. I tried to tell God how much I loved this man. I wanted to do the right thing in his sight concerning this relationship. I can't sleep, work, or play. I feel like I can bearly breathe. It was easy to praise him when I was driving the finest car and living in a home that was just the way I wanted it to be. I was comfortable and safe. Well I am not safe now, I am scared frustrated and lonely. I am angry because I can't get this situation under control. This load is too heavy. Why Me!!! Why Now!!!

I found myself in a place like this once. When everything was against me. That was all it took. One time!! I know that I need to praise Him. The Word of God says that he inhabits the praises of his people and that he will never leave nor forsake us. I had to stop myself from being Peter. I had to stop looking at the situation and look at the solution. My focus was out of wack. I was blinded by my insecurities and ignoring God's possibilities. It is possible to praise in these situations. We ought not try to understand things but to acknowledge God in all things, surrender to his will. His will is perfect, absolute. When you surrender to the Lord in a praise you are set free from the snare. You can walk in the fiery furnace, face Goliath, get an extension on you life, build an ark, lead children from captivity, build the wall of the city, build a temple for His glory, and sleep in a den of lion. You can accomplish it in strength for His joy is our strength. If you find yourself is a impossible, improbable, uncompromising, situation. I challenge you this day to lose your mind in the Lord and recklessly praise him. The shackles of life will losen and you will be free. Who the son sets free is free indeed.

We are set free, for the One who paid our bond defeated death and worked miracles on this earth and signs in heaven. These things and greater works are to be done by us and through us in His name. If we walk in the power and confidence of his Holy Spirit.


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