I WILL LIFT THE LORD UP IN HIGH PRAISES
Good Morning Children of God, as we begin preparation for our Sunday worship service, we are providing you with a devotional service this moment in hopes of lifting your spirits even higher for the Lord’s glory and praise. For it is truly the will of our Lord and Savior that we lift up the father in HIGH PRAISES, not just sometimes or when it’s convenient for us to praise him, but at all times, for God is good, and he is truly worthy of our praise. Now let this day as every day be a day of new beginnings. When we put our complete trust and confidence in the Lord and lift him up in high praises he will take us places that our minds never thought we could go. We are his sheep and he is our shepherd and with his word, he will lead us to greener pastures.
DAVID’S SONG OF PRAISE PSALMS 37:1-11 MSG
Don’t bother your head with braggarts
or wish you could succeed like the wicked.
In no time they’ll shrivel like grass clippings
and wilt like cut flowers in the sun.
Get insurance with God and do a good deed,
settle down and stick to your last.
Keep company with God,
get in on the best.
Open up before God, keep nothing back;
he’ll do whatever needs to be done:
He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day
and stamp you with approval at high noon.
Quiet down before God,
be prayerful before him.
Don’t bother with those who climb the ladder,
who elbow their way to the top.
Bridle your anger, trash your wrath,
cool your pipes—it only makes things worse.
Before long the crooks will be bankrupt;
God-investors will soon own the store.
LET US PRAY:
Most holy and all-wise God our heavenly father, we have so much to be thankful for and as we lift you up in our prayers and praise, we can never thank you enough for what you have done for us down through the years. You brought us up on the rough side of the mountain, leading us, strengthen us, teaching us, constantly pushing us to keep going. Never giving up on us, even when we lost faith in our ability to climb the mountain after you had assured us that we could do it. You knew that our physical bodies were breaking down. and our spiritual minds were wearing then, but you kept encouraging us to climb and stretch out that we may be lifted up. Now we are standing at the top of the mountain, looking all around. We can see your beauty and grace everywhere. As we climb the rough side of this mountain we knew not how we were going to make it. Satan placed all sorts of stumbling blocks in our pathway, but it was you Lord that encouraged us to keep moving forward in the face of the many obstacles that we were facing. Father, I thank you for I know that it was nothing short of your mercy and grace that allowed your children to reach the top of this mountain this day and see your glory in the splendor of their praise and worship as they opened their eyes and realized that they were truly in your Holy presences. Thank you Heavenly Father, in Jesus name we pray. Amen!
