DAY 2: Praise of God
I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3
Praising God can mean simply speaking the truths we know about Him. That’s how David starts his praise: “The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer” Praising God and thanking Him for what He has done in our lives can help us to think about “whatever is true,” which the apostle Paul says will help us have peace (Philippians 4:8). But, it can also change our hearts and lives as we pay closer attention to who God is and what God does for us on a daily basis. When we praise God we become more aware of His workings all around us.
Heavenly Father, You are our Rock, our fortress and our deliverer. We come to You today to give You all the praise and honor that is due unto You alone. Thank You Lord, for Your goodness towards us all. By praising you today we become more aware of your presence in our lives and in our community. God fix our eyes on you today. In Jesus’s name we pray, AMEN.
