March 26 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  THE SECRETS TO A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

March 26 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  THE SECRETS TO A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

I Peter 3:16 “Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.”
 
I always remember, as a small boy growing up in the country, my mother saying, “Do it with kindness” when responding to criticism.  She would always remind me and my siblings daily that it’s not what you say but how you say it.  Say it where there is no remorse; say it where you will show love; say it where God gets the victory.  So, be mindful of the words you speak and keep peace in the middle of confusion.  The way to a good night’s sleep is to keep a good conscience and a spiritual conversation.

March 25 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  NOT FULFILLING THE DESIRES OF THE FLESH

March 25 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  NOT FULFILLING THE DESIRES OF THE FLESH

Romans 13:14 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”
 
Though we may experience times of weakness, Jesus was sent to show us that it is possible to live a saved, clean life.  We have to fight everyday to not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  With the help of Jesus, we can make it by staying in the Word of God along with fasting, prayer, and the guidance of the Holy Ghost.  Saints, don’t stop fighting and don’t give up because our reward is closer than you think.

March 24 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST

March 24 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST

I John 2:15 “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
 
The Greek meaning of “shew forth praises” is to send a message of God’s excellences.  We as believers are witnesses to the world, an image of Christ to share His message of salvation.  I John 2:15 tells us to not love the things of the world; not referring to the people, but the sinful ways of the world.  In order to shew forth His praises, we must turn away from the dark worldly ways and be the light that shines bright in us which is Jesus Christ.  So saints, let’s be God’s mouthpiece and boldly proclaim to the world that Jesus Christ is Lord and He is here to save.

March 23 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  STANDING ON HIS PROMISES

March 23 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  STANDING ON HIS PROMISES

I Peter 3:15 “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:  and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”
 
We must be confident in God and boldly profess our trust in the Lord.  We must know without a shadow of a doubt that our Father is able to do all that He promised He would do.  It is our job as Christians to witness to our brothers, sisters, and the world about the goodness and salvation of the Lord.

March 22 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  SHOW OFF

March 22 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  SHOW OFF

Romans 12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”

We were created to praise God and shew forth His praises by living a life that is totally committed, completely, totally, and pleasing unto God.  No, life is not easy but because of the favor of God, we can accomplish great things which will bring glory unto Him.  To shew means to present what is good and pleasing unto the Lord.  Reasonable means fair, sensible, sound judgment.  When we give ourselves unto the Lord, it’s just sound, sensible, and definitely sound judgment.

March 21 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  WE OWE GOD A PRAISE

March 21 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  WE OWE GOD A PRAISE

Psalm 150:6 “Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.”
 
As Psalm 150:6 shows us that the only requirement needed to praise is to have breath which God has given us.  Even in the midst of the pandemic and a chaotic world, there is still something for which to praise God.  When we praise God, we are not only thanking Him for what He has done, but magnifying Him simply for who He is.  Praising God brings us into His presence, allowing us to draw near to God, and it has the power to change a situation or circumstance.  The more you praise God (whether in a song, giving, dance, prayer, worship, testimony, etc) the better you will feel.

March 20 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES: PRAISING HIM WITH MY MOUTH

March 20 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  PRAISING HIM WITH MY MOUTH

Psalm 109:30 “I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.”
 
Every part of our bodies was created to offer up praises to our Saviour.  We can praise God using our hands, feet, or even our mouth.  The Bible declares that God inhabits the praises of His people.  Therefore, we should declare the goodness of God among the multitude.  Dwell in His presence continually.

March 19 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES: WE OWE GOD A PRAISE
 
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.”
 
Praise is an essential part of worshiping God.  Regardless what we may face in this life, we owe God a praise.  Psalm 103: 1 says, “Praise the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless his holy name.”

March 18 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES: THE KINGDOM IS OURS

March 18 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  THE KINGDOM IS OURS

Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
We seek God’s kingdom through prayer, Bible reading, and studying the Word of God. The Word tells us that we are to always pray and to pray without ceasing. We are instructed to study the Word, take heed to what the Word says, and the Word will then enlighten us which in turn makes us walk upright. God reminds us in His Word that if we walk upright, no good thing will he withhold from us. That’s enough to offer Him praise.

March 17 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  WATCH THEM WORDS

March 17 ~ TO SHEW FORTH HIS PRAISES:  WATCH THEM WORDS
James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:”
 
As people of God, our choice of action will always matter.  When approached with a difficult task, person, or relationship, be careful of the words you speak; ask God for guidance.  Inspite of what some people say, words do hurt.  Please remember that you are an ambassador for Jesus Christ.  Therefore give thanks and praise in all things because He is watching and listening to see if your words are helpful or harmful.
