Praise the Lord at All Times   

Psalm 34 1

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:1

I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise will always be on my lips.

No matter what is going on in your life praise the Lord. In good times, praise the Lord. During difficult times, praise the Lord. At all times, praise the Lord. Praise invites God’s presence into every situation. Praise gets the focus off of you and onto God and when you focus on God it changes your heart and increases your faith. Give honor, praise, and glory to God because He is good, He is worthy of all praise and because we know that all things work together for good to them that love God. (Romans 8:28) Let His praise always be on your lips.

God is Good to All

Psalm 145 9

 Verse of the Day:  Psalm 145:9

The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.

God is the definition of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. There isn’t a single person God is not ready and able to bless. There isn’t a single person God isn’t willing to show mercy and forgiveness to. There isn’t a single person who God does not want to have eternal joy. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God and seek Him with all of your heart so that you may know His everlasting goodness and love.

God’s Word is Right and True

Psalm 33 4

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 33:4

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

Every word, every promise, every part of God’s Word is right and true. His commands and precepts are righteous and fair. God’s Word is an awesome display of His power, wisdom and goodness. God’s Word exists for all people equally and its path leads to heaven and happiness. We can be confident and believe every Word because He is truly faithful in all He does and keeps every promise. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is so deserving of all praise for His righteousness, truth and faithfulness.

Praise His Name

Psalm 99 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 99:3

Let them praise your great and awesome name – he is holy.

The Lord is so worthy of our praise. We serve a mighty God who is wonderful, merciful and faithful. Praise Him for who He is, for His goodness and holiness. Praising His holy name invites His presence and opens a path to a deeper connection and relationship with our Creator and the King of the world. Focus on the Lord and give Him all your attention and praise Him with all your heart and soul. Just come before the Lord to give Him praise, honor and glory. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Forgiveness

Psalm 86 5 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:5

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.

God hates sin but He loves the sinners. If not for His love, mercy and forgiveness where would we be? He is good to all and offers forgiveness to anyone who calls on His holy name. He loves us so much He sent His only Son to die on the cross to pay for our sins so we could receive His forgiveness and mercy. He is ready to forgive and He won’t withhold His mercy. No sin is too great that He can’t forgive it. Come to Him with a sincere heart and ask to be forgiven through faith. Accept the Lord’s forgiveness and know that God will wipe the slate clean and give you a new start.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 3: Thankful for Another Day of Life 

Psalm 106 1.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 106:1

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

I woke up this morning and if you’re reading this so did you, but not everyone did, so be thankful for another day of life. Praise God and give thanks to the Lord. He is deserving of all praise. No matter what is going on in your life there is always something to be thankful for. God’s love is forever and He is gracious, merciful and ready to forgive. God never gives up on us even when we don’t deserve another chance His mercies are new every morning. Life is a precious gift from God so as long as you have breath in your lungs give thanks to the Lord.

God Is Good All the Time

1 Chronicles 16 34

Verse of the Day:  1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

The Bible doesn’t say, “Give thanks to the Lord when you feel good”.  It says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”.  Giving thanks shouldn’t be based on how you feel, it should be based on who God is, and He is good all the time. If you’re reading this it means you woke up this morning, thank God for waking you up. Thank God for all He’s done for you both big and small. Thank God for what He’s done for you both seen and unseen. Thank God for the things that didn’t happen, the things you didn’t even know you need protection from. Praise God because there is always something to be thankful for.

God’s Love Endures Forever

Psalm 100 5

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:5

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

God loves us and His love is forever not because of anything we have done or anything we will ever do, but because He is good. His lovingkindness for His people will continue forever. His timing is good, His mercy and grace are good, everything He does is good. His truth continues for all generations and He is faithful in keeping His promises. We can always count on Him because He never changes, even when we are faithless, He remains faithful. People may fail you but God never will.

Experience God for Yourself

Psalm 34 8

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

I am personally inviting you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God.
