Day 2 of the 30 day praise challenge by Becky Harling
Becky states in Part One “the challenge”, “Praise awakened my heart to His voice. Many mornings before my alarm clock went off, He woke me up with an invitation that went like this: Wake up, My child. Come and be with Me. Praise Me and enjoy My presence.”
As I stated in my previous blog, I am recovering from a respiratory illness that has knocked me out of commission. Yesterday was the first full day of work that I was able to complete in over a week. During this time, I feel like Jesus is inviting me to rely on Him. I woke up this morning and the last thing I wanted to do was spend time with and “praise” the Lord. I wanted to go back to sleep, my body is still sick and tired. Not only did my alarm go off in the bedroom but the other cell phone alarm was ringing in my prayer room. It may not have been the sweet whispers Becky mention above but it worked. God is good; time to get up!
Today’s lesson was on praising God for His boundless strength and endless power. I am in desperate need of His power and strength at this moment (maybe every moment).
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Thank you Jesus for reminding me that my strength is found in you.
“God, please be my strength. Please be my strength. I don’t have anymore, I don’t have anymore! You are my strength, You and You alone, keep bring me back home.” Gungor
Please listen to following song by Gungor. Every time I hear this song, it brings tears to my eyes and my heart closer to God.
