HIS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING - Good Morning...
I thought, again, about my post from last week and realized that there's more to it!
I used to say – “Fake It ‘Til You Feel It” because I would watch people who were going through and during Worship and Praise they would just sit, expressionless. But I found that if I, when I, forced myself to stand to my feet, clap my hands, sing the worship and praises and allow myself to, as I used to say, “fake it”, that I would soon, very soon, feel it!
My Pastor changed it to “ It ‘Til You Feel It” which is, of course, a more spiritually correct way of expressing what I was saying.
But I have since those days of …
Because I KNOW that if you are in court trouble, legal trouble – He IS a lawyer
Because I KNOW that if you are in financial trouble – the cattle on a thousand hills IS My Fathers’
Because I KNOW that if you are in physical trouble, pain racking your body – He IS a healer
Because I KNOW that if you are in emotional trouble – He IS a mind regulator
Because I know Him for myself and no matter what, all of the praise is His!
So I now tell people - you never have to fake it again - NO EXCUSES – just- praise - Him.
Praise Him while you wait; praise Him while you rest in Him; praise Him through it all – just, praise Him.
Job goes on to say: “Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
Job was saying - just praise Him
Praise Him as you rest in Him.
Praise Him as you wait IN your emergency
Praise Him as He tries you in your emergency
And then praise Him as you exit your emergency as pure gold.
Because He knows the way you take, and you take it with praise!
See you next Sunday morning, if the Lord says the same and delays His coming.
