Unleash Your Praise

April 10, 2024

This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sinai, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us. 

                                                         - Acts 7:38 

In Acts 7:38, Stephen recounts the story of Moses and the Israelites in the wilderness, referring to them as the "church in the wilderness." This term may seem peculiar at first, but it holds profound significance. It reminds us that even in the wilderness, God's people were not abandoned or forsaken. Instead, they were gathered as a community, receiving divine guidance and instruction. Just as the Israelites were saved from the bondage of Egypt, we too have been saved by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. 

Pause for a moment and consider the depths from which the Lord has lifted you. Think about the trials and tribulations you have faced, the battles you have fought, and the victories you have won through His grace. Despite the enemy's attempts to bring you down, you are still standing here today, a testimony to God's faithfulness and deliverance. 

Let us not forget the significance of our salvation. It is a gift beyond measure, bestowed upon us by a loving and merciful God. Therefore, let us lift our voices in praise and adoration, giving thanks for the great salvation we have received. 

Despite the enemy's attempts to bring you down, you are still standing here today, a testimony to God's faithfulness and deliverance. 

Even in the face of adversity, let us echo the words of Exodus 14:9, acknowledging that the Lord has made a way where there seemed to be no way. Just as He parted the Red Sea for the Israelites, He has worked miracles in our lives, turning our trials into triumphs and our obstacles into opportunities. 

So, my brothers and sisters, I encourage you to lift up your hands and shout "Hallelujah!" Let your praises ring out, for we serve a God who is worthy of all honor and glory. He has rescued us from the depths of despair and brought us into His marvelous light. 

As we reflect on the stories of deliverance found in the Scriptures, let us remember that the same God who rescued Daniel from the den of lions and delivered the Israelites from the pursuing Egyptians is with us today. He is our refuge and our strength, a present help in times of trouble. 

Therefore, let us not withhold our praise, but let it flow freely from grateful hearts. May our songs of worship rise like incense before the throne of God, filling the heavens with the sweet aroma of adoration and thanksgiving. 

Song of Worship  

 God is good 

He has done me well 

Oh my soul  

Rise up and praise the Lord. 

Prayer - Thank you, Lord, for your unfailing love and mercy. Thank you for never leaving us nor forsaking us, even in our darkest moments. We praise you for your faithfulness, for your provision, and for your constant presence in our lives in Jesus' name, we pray. Amen. 

Bible in 1 year:1 Samuel 19-21
