Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth!
So the new year has finally started, Christmas decorations have been stored away and people will be generally getting back into the swing of normal life. For many people though the new year is a chance to start again, set themselves new goals, wipe the slate clean etc. As followers of Jesus what better way to start the new year than to put God first by praising him, adoring him and giving him all the glory that he so rightly deserves.
Yesterday we looked at how praising God brings perspective to one's life as well as unleashing God's power but to do this we must make praise a priority!
Let us all make a decision today to praise God for who he is, for what he has done and for what he has promised to do! Let us echo what Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah said when he faced the advancing army...
'Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever'
