Praise Where It Belongs!

 

 

PRAISE GOD AND....?

    
No one wants to be around someone who causes them to get into a bad mood.  It also gets to be quite uncomfortable when that person praises their own efforts and accomplishments. There may be an occasion when justification is needed, but never a time where self-praise is enjoyed by another listener.
What do we find in the Bible about this?  From Proverbs 27:2 it reads..."Let another praise you, and not your own mouth.."   It seems rather clear that giving praise to one self is not wise, and likely will drive away others.  So,shall we put praise where it belongs?  Praising others spreads a spirit of joy!  It lifts them up.  When we praise God for all He gives us, we find others joining us in that praise!  When we grumble, and focus on our doings, we find this works against us! Let us all bless and praise God, lift up others in love, and conquer the enemy in this important area.

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
