HAVING BAD DAY?
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.
Psalm 113:3 NIV
Have you ever been in those days where you were having a bad day? There are those days where everything you do seem to end badly. For some reasons even close friends seem to misunderstand you; and annoy you with their words during those days.
There are many reasons that can cause people to have so called bad day; but I have learnt that is wise not to let those days to get a better of us. For us who are in Christ Jesus we need to be able to manage our feelings and control our moods. We need to ask the Spirit of God to give us the fruit of self control that we may be able to control ourselves.
The Bible says from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. In other reasons we need to develop the art of praising the Lord always in our hearts and through our lips. Praise breaks the chain of bad moods, and restores the joy of the Lord in the heart of believers.
This morning, I want you to know that praise can help you to break the chain of bad days. If you find yourself any time you are having a bad day; then to break that trend you need to put your praise on. You need to start thinking about the goodness of the Lord, what He has done for you; and thank Him for His goodness and mercies in your life.
God is enthroned in the praises of His people, as Psalmist says in Psalm 22:3, "Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel." When we stop trying so hard in our own puny power and simply build a throne of praise to Him, He will come and inhabit and sit right in our midst. The language of praise acts like a magnet and God quickly attaches Himself to us. It’s a promise—God is enthroned on the praises of His people. (Steve Berger)
If God comes down to sit with us through our praises; then you need to be sure that nothing will be able to stand against us whether inside of us or on the environments those surround us. Praise can turn terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day to be one of the best days of your life.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I pray that I may be able to praise You in both good times and bad. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
