Dwelling in Praise…(The Best Place to be on a Monday…and Everyday!)

“Let them praise your great and awesome name! Holy is He!”

Psalm 99:3

“But You are holy, O You that inhabits the praises of Israel.”

Psalm 22:3

If God inhabits praises…then that’s where I want to be…praising Him!!!

Here’s the verse I’ve been working on memorizing…

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”

Philippians 4:8

PANSY

It’s easy to get off the track and be tripped up and dwell in the negative…worry, self pity, bitterness, complaining, having a critical spirit…

{Father…forgive us for camping out in these dark places…You brought us OUT of the darkness and into Your glorious Light…keep us here and help us not to wander back to the dark.  You are Light and that’s where we want to be!}

If we are to think of whatever is True, there is nothing more True than Him!

If we are to think of whatever is Noble, there is none more Noble than He!!

His ways are Right…

His Love is Pure…

He is Lovely…

He is Admirable…

He is Excellent and Worthy of our praise!!

So…

“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

Psalm 34:1b

Today, on this Monday, His praise will “ever be on my lips”…I will choose to praise!

Will you join me?!!

Father, You are Holy!!  You are True and Noble, Your ways are right…Your love is pure.  You are Lovely and where You are is where I want to be!  You are Admirable…let me look more like You today!!  You alone are Most Excellent and Worthy of ALL of our praise.  Thank You for bringing us out of the darkness and into Your Glorious Light!!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Blessings on this Monday!

“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

Colossians 3:16
