Praise Him…No Matter What! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 22nd

(Praise God At All Times And In All Situations)

TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 18:47-49 AMPC
“The God who avenges me and subdues peoples under me, who delivers me from my enemies; yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me; you deliver me from the man of violence. Therefore will I give thanks and extol you, O Lord, among the nations, and sing praises to your name.”

Always, it’s important that we learn to thank the Lord for all the wonderful things we experience and also for those things we may not really consider to be very nice.

Some people are only joyful and thankful to the Lord when things seem to be going well, but gripe in the face of adversity. It ought not to be so.

Irrespective of the situation or your immediate circumstances, you should always sing to Him and give thanks to the Father. Worship and praise Him, no matter what!

Let me share this with you: Some years ago, a Christian gentleman who worked with the government had been praying and expecting promotions on his job.

Then, there was a problem at his office; he was accused of certain things, for which he wasn’t really at fault.

So, he prayed that God would vindicate him. Instead of being vindicated, he was pronounced guilty, and as a result, he was demoted. Everything went wrong for him.

In that state, however, he kept attending church services, serving and worshipping the Lord, confident that God would vindicate him.

Not long afterwards, there was a change of government, and all those who were ahead of him were fired, but he was retained!

And since he was then the most senior of all those that were retained, he became the new boss. If he had been promoted as he had been expecting, he’d have been among the senior cadre of staff that were laid off by the new government.

Sometimes, we have no idea what the Lord is doing behind the scenes on our behalf, which is why the Bible says, “Thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 MSG). In every situation, give Him thanks, no matter what!

Dear heavenly Father, you’ve filled my heart with praise, worship, and thanksgiving. Today, as I render heartfelt songs of worship, praise, and thanksgiving to you, they are a sweet-smelling sacrifice, acceptable and well pleasing to you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
