America has a turnaround culture.
We pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. Put on a new leaf. Turn to the sun. Get up on the other side of the bed.
Each of these means the same. We change our situation by hard work and determination. We improve ourselves by sheer will.
We make a difference in our situation because we desire it.
A good first step is to offer praise unto the holy God who gives us life.
Harold Herring in 7 Keys to Activating the Cyrus Anointing says, “God inhabits the praises of His people, and the spirit of dread and fear cannot stay in that environment.”
Praise will turn your life around.
1. God will be there when you lift him up in praise. Let me say that again. God will be there . . . with you . . . because you praised him.
2. You will no longer dread tomorrow when you praise God. Why? Because God’s presence will give you hope for the future.
3. Fear is banished from your life . . . all fear . . . financial . . . emotional . . . physical. God will fill you with courage to face every situation.
2 Timothy 1:7 says it this way:
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
That’s bootstrap control! We can rise out of the mess we’re in. We can have a brighter sunrise, a warmer hug, and a better job situation because we’ve become different through praise to our holy God.
Let’s get our bootstraps out. The time to praise God is now.
