TOPIC: YOUR PRAISE AND YOUR HEALTH
SCRIPTURE: Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Exodus 15:11
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: As long as you are ready to praise the Lord, you will be supplied the breath of life.
From our anchor Scripture, we see that praise is a spiritual force that connects humanity to the wonders of God. It is not a Pentecostal form of bodily exercise; to praise with such mentality is to miss the essence of praise.
Now, let us look at one of the products of praise.
Praise which is the expression of joy in the Lord is key to Divine health and vitality.
Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” So joy is medicinal; it is therapeutic.
In a world invaded by all manner of negative news, you need a therapy, a medicine that will keep you permanently in a joyful mood. The joy that comes from the countenance of God in the course of praise imparts life (Acts 2:28). It animates your system with life. Psalm 150:6 says, Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord… That is, as long as you are ready to praise the Lord, you will be supplied the breath of life. So, praise which is an expression of joy in the Lord is the secret of Divine health and vitality.
Remember this: As long as you are ready to praise the Lord, you will be supplied the breath of life.
1.Live a life of praise.
2.Think about where God has brought you from, where you are today, and where He is taking you to, and give Him praise.
3.Refuse to grumble no matter what confronts you.

PRAYER: O LORD, I give You thanks for the gift of life to me. Thank You LORD because where I am today is not where I started from. Thank You LORD for Your glorious future plans for me, in Jesus’ Name.
