Many of us would ask, “Why should I?”. Life is hard, we are having problems every day. Health problems, financial problems, relationship problems, national and international problems…all of these are happening every day, everywhere, so why should we praise God? Because God is still in control and He gives us the strength and the ability to get through all of these days.
God never promised that we would not have problems but He did promise that He would be with us going through every problem whatever they might be. All of us have had sad days and depressing days, but God is beside us as we walk with Him. If you are an unbeliever, just ask Him to come into your life and help you with the problems that you have. He won’t take the problems away but He will give you the strength and the ability to get through them.
The Bible says that “God inhabits the praise of His people“. When we praise God in prayer or in worship or song, He is very attentive to every word that we are saying. God loves you and cares for you far more than you can imagine. Giving your life and your heart to Jesus will not take the troubles away but it will give you the strength of Jesus and His Holy Spirit to get through whatever comes against you!
Christians don’t get a pass on trouble. Jesus told His disciples that they would have trouble in this world but He said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world“. Give your heart to Jesus and ask Him to give you the strength for today and then ask the same for tomorrow. Walk with Him every day and the troubles that come won’t be so troublesome. He will get you through each day when you depend on Him.
