Praise the Father . . .

“Sing to the LORD, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name.” –  Psalms 30:4

Think back to the concert or football game you last attended. Remember cheering so loud you nearly lost your voice? Few people praise Me with that kind of gusto. Praise is like dialing Me up on the phone. I am quick to respond when you praise My Father for all He has done and who He is. It’s not complicated. Simply saying, “God, You are amazing. You are my Hope!” is praise!

Now What? Pray: “You alone, God, are perfect and worthy of adoration. You, alone, are truly good and in control of every detail in my life. You, alone, proved more powerful than the grave, and I love you for loving me and all my imperfections. Thank you for valuing me as your chosen child.”
