The daily news confirms the fact that not only is lawlessness escalating, but the godless laws that are being put into place reveal that the forces of evil are rampant. There is a sense of urgency as we see the forces of darkness continue to advance. Do we not often feel burdened, cut to the heart, torn by inner conflict, when we see and read about these situations in our country – in the world? It is like a mountain of evil that wants to crush us. We seem so insignificant and small. Even if we would drill little holes in this mountain what would that help? Really not much. But if we could put a stick of dynamite in these holes – it would have an effect.
Singing praises to God, praying and trusting Him with all our hearts is this dynamite.
- Praise God every day – worshiping God will rout the enemy. When He is worshiped in His greatness and everlasting majesty the enemy flees.
Sing praises to God, even on days when you don’t feel up to it, because your spiritual and physical burdens are weighing heavily upon you. If you praise God’s name, you will draw down His help. You will experience how He will draw near to you and fill your life with His spirit of peace, joy and comfort. And you will be able to comfort others.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
Ps. 29:2 NIV
I come ever singing, the very air ringing
“Our Father in heaven is loving, all love!
His heart’s full of kindness, a heart of love only,
the heart of the Godhead, and I am His child!”
- Trust and obey, do not fear, only believe. Yes, believe and count on Jesus’ victory daily in light of the impossibilities in your life and in the lives of your loved ones. Proclaim its power over all the inward and outward obstacles. Then you will see His victory and the glory of God.
The trusting soul inherits all
the heav’nly kingdom’s splendor;
the Father’s hands let blessings fall
of good is He the sender.
Though men may cry, “All things we lack”
in joyous faith we answer back:
“We trust in God Almighty!”
- Prayer is a matchless opportunity. Through prayer people, things, problems and relationships can be transformed. Prayer has infinite power.
God wants to hear your requests, for it is His great pleasure to fulfill them. So come to God today with your requests, and you will discover: God is a Father. It is His joy to do good things for His children.
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Mat. 6:9-13 NKJV
So I from day to day
in love and trust will pray,
and in my heart perceive
one day I will receive
all I believe.
