PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW
Isaiah 43:19-21 declares ” Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert. The beast of the field will honor Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I give waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My people, My chosen. This people I have formed for Myself; They shall declare My praise.” This is the first day of March 2019, another month to praise God from whom all blessings flow. I do not know how you feel when you open your eyes to see another beautiful day, because while we went to bed in the night, we were swept into our subconscious mind. We remember nothing while we were sleeping. We were in another world, a world that we cannot describe. Then at the dawn of the day, our eyes are opened again and we are back to the world we know. This is what we go through every day, and this has been happening since we were brought to this world. Sleeping and waking up is a miracle by itself, and it is only God who has the total control of us getting up every day. This is more than enough to Praise God when our eyes open every morning. God deserves our praises for keeping us alive to see each new day. Lamentation 3:22-24 declares “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,“Therefore I hope in Him!” Jeremiah was acknowledging the faithfulness of God on a daily basis because anything could have happened in our sleep. We hear of stories of people that died in their sleep, or they woke up and became sick thereafter. Therefore, when we wake up and we feel okay for the day, our God deserves our praises.
This is why today, our Daily Words of Wisdom centers on praising God by taking a break from the stories of our Patriarchs to give God the honor that is due to Him, and to appreciate Him for the gift of life, which He made possible for us to see this new month. As a matter of fact, we reflected on some of the past blessings of God yesterday, and we are using today to further appreciate God for making us see the third month of the year 2019. Great is the faithfulness of God. He declared in Isaiah 43 :19, that He would do something new in our lives this month, something extraordinary, something that will make you jump up and run around and shout or sing for what He would do this month. He says what He would do cannot be hidden because it shall spring forth for all to see. What has been difficult will be made easy as He plans to open waters in our desert and make a way in our wilderness. As I am believing God for my miracles this month, this is my prayer this month, and I am holding on to it as God’s promise to me to give me my breakthrough this month. Please make this your prayer too if you are expecting something miraculous from God. God is faithful to His promises. While we are praying our prayers this month let His Praises be in our mouth continuously. We receive many blessings through Praises, because when Praises go up, blessings come down to His people. May His Name be glorified in our lives in Jesus Name, AMEN.
