Lift Up and Praise the Lord

An old gospel hymn tells us to count all our blessings, to name them one by one.

When we have a bad day, count our blessings.

When we have a good day, count our blessings.

When our grandchildren come over, count our blessings.

When we are lonely, count our blessings.

When we are at work, count our blessings.

When we pay our bills, count our blessings.

When we don’t have the money to pay our bills, count our blessings.

Here’s what this is about: God is greater than our circumstances. When things are going bad, he is greater than what’s around us. When things are going well, God is greater still!

We read in Psalm 93:4:

“The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.”

When things are going well, let’s praise the Lord.

When things are not going well, it’s especially important to praise him.

There is no circumstance or trouble that is greater than God. No matter how noisy the chatter of life becomes, God is the great silencer that can bring you peace.

So, start today. Name your blessings, count them all, one by one. Then praise the Lord for all that he has done.
