When We Praise the Lord
“I will always praise the Lord…” (Psalm 145:21 GNT)
One of Satan’s devices is to get us to stop praising the Lord, because he knows that God inhabits the praises of his people. The picture we have is that of God sitting down like a king and dispensing his blessings as his people praise him. Oh, the wonderful things that happen when you praise the Lord! Temptations lose their power, sadness turns to joy, and hope is renewed when you focus on God. That’s why the enemy of our souls does his best to have us focus our attention instead on our problems, on the ways in which others may have let us down, and on all the negative things we hear on TV. Let’s put Satan on notice that no matter what is going on in our lives and around us right now, we are going to praise the Lord today!
