Good morning everyone,
If you just look up the words 'Praising God' on the Bible Gateway website, you will find example after example of people being healed and in return, they leave their affliction and go about praising Him who gave them life! Many times we forget to praise the Father for all the things that He does in and through us. Instead we focus on the trials and tribulations that we are faced with and we get side tracked so we can't see through the forest for all the trees! I want you to do me a favor and take your eyes off of your own problems for a moment and look at someone else that is facing something much tougher than what you are battling! You say you can't think of anyone! What? All you have to do is turn on the news or open up the daily paper! Once you find an individual that meets that criteria, pray for that person. When we take our eyes off of our problems and we pray for others, our problems become less and less of an issue. Before you know it, you will see God working in and through your issues for His Glory to shine! You see, we live a very uncomplicated life when we trust the Man that walked before us! Jesus has heard it all, seen it all, and been through it all! There is nothing that you will face that He hasn't already faced! If you have a 'thorn' in your side like the Apostle Paul had, praise Him and watch it turn into something beautiful. Acts 3:8 says that he jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. He didn't just go about his daily grind of being afflicted. Once the chains were gone, he had been set free and he began to show and tell everyone Who deserved the credit! Go out and praise Him today and see what happens.
Your brother in Christ,
