Pick up a copy of the book, “The Prayer That Changes Everything” by Stormie Omartian and head into the fall with fresh understanding of how to put the power of praise to work in your life.
Quote from chapter 17:
“When you praise God in the face of your anxiety, fear, and discouragement,
you open up the channels through which God’s peace, love, and encouragement flow to you.
That is the hidden power of praise.
“Worship is ... entering into God’s presence expecting His love, peace, and joy to overtake you no matter how you feel at that moment.
It’s proclaiming that He is bigger than anything you face.” page 191
That wise advice from Stormie comes from God’s Word, the Bible. Make sure you also pick up a copy of that today too.
Put it in your hands and savor the truth of God’s wisdom.
God calls us to praise Him even when it is a sacrifice. Praise is a door through which God’s salvation, His help and strength, will come.
“He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:23
It’s Sunday today. Let’s be intentional about choosing praise to our Lord today!

As we face the day -to -day challenges of life we are told to “trust God” with the uncertainties that worry us. Trust God with the blind corners and with that next step even when it feels there is nowhere to place your foot. It can sound so trite at times when our minds swim with the “what if” possibilities.
