I’ve Gotta Praise Him
I bought a new Bible a few weeks ago. This time I got the large print. I finally laid to rest my previous study bible I used for over twenty one years. I used to call that totally worn out bible “Watermelon.” Why? Because I love watermelon and I couldn’t wait to eat every word in God’s book. I’m finding my new bible is just as tasty and full of God spoken truth I need to digest.
I started out reading letters like the books of Timothy and Titus that were designed for pastoral leaders. Now, I’m reading through the Psalms one by one. I can so identify with the Psalmist’s distress and desperateness. Just months ago I was about to throw in the towel on everything. My pain was paralyzing and my will to fight was fading quickly. All I could do was beg God to intervene on my behalf.
Praise God every prayer lifted has now been answered. My enemy the devil is underneath my feet. My health has drastically improved. My family will soon have a new home to move into. I just want to testify that God is good, faithful, and worthy to be praised.
“You have armed me with strength for the battle; you have subdued my enemies under my feet. The Lord lives! Praise to my Rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted.
(Psalm 18:39, 46)
