Overflowing with praise

There was a time when I didn’t want to read the Psalms. Looking back, there was still a lot of frustration, pain, and spiritual lack in my life.

I certainly didn’t want to praise God’s name because I thought that everything that was happening, was His fault.

Yet, there was a shift when God powerfully came upon me one day, and because His presence was so thick and tangible, I entered into His court.

I realised that day that my spirit longed to be in God’s presence and when I was obedient to my heart’s cry, I could not help but overflow with praise.

Why?

Everyday we may get out of bed and feel the heartache of this world but God has called us to get to know Him. The enemy wants nothing more than to hold us captive in our thoughts of despair, but when we choose to put that aside and focus our thoughts on God, we then begin to appreciate what He has actually done for us and that in itself, deserves endless praise.

“Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!” Psalms‬ ‭150:6‬
