Joy Of The Lord

Do you feel weak and afflicted sometimes, maybe even depressed or defeated and tired?

Have you thought about quitting, giving up or taking a so called break?

Did you say yes to any of that?

If so, then you've probably lost your joy and are about to discover what you can do to get it back, keep it for a while, and get it back again quickly whenever you need to.

Psalms 50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.

Praising God Brings His Peaceful Presence

Psalms 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

That's right, it doesn't matter what you're going through or how you feel if you can take the time to turn your attention to the mighty works and glorious abilities of God He will show up and comfort you and tell you what to do.

I've experienced this on many occasions for myself and even experienceed it in the aftermath of being in the presence of another fellow Christian right after he had just got done praising God.

Needless to say I felt fantastic as I could physically feel the migraine headache and worry just melt away like butter on a hot stove.

Praising God Fights Off Depression

Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

Did you see that? God has appointed us to praise and worship Him in the midst of all our troubles, no matter how tough they may be, that way He can comfort, save and restore us and get the glory from us just like He deserves anyway.

Praising God Gives You Strength

Nehemiah 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Even when you're the one who messed up, you don't need to let the devil trick you into condemning and beating up on yourself, but you can immediately turn to praising God and He will forgive you and strengthen you also.

And that's only the beginning check out this almost unbeliavable and miraculous reason on Why You Should Be Praising God.
