We face a lot of tough circumstances in this life, and the world expects us to behave a certain way when problems come.
But God told us to respond a different way—to not let our hearts be troubled. We get to choose (Deut. 30:19). We have the option of following Jesus’ words and acting on the Word of God.
Praise God in the midst of challenges
I have personally felt the benefit of rejoicing in the Lord. I have seen it destroy the devil. He cannot stand it. I really believe that God inhabits the praises of His people (Ps. 22:3).
God is so pleased when we look beyond the natural and see things in the light of faith. That blesses God.
Praise is not the inevitable byproduct that comes when everything is going right in our lives; it is the driving force.
Praise will get our focus where it needs to be—on God. If we start praising God in the middle of our problems, our problems will shrink so much that we’ll hardly remember to bring them to God!
We’ll be so busy praising Him and thanking Him for His blessings that our problems will be an afterthought
