You are certainly in his will when you praise God, because we are commanded to praise him. Psalm 150 begins in the sanctuary and goes through a list of places to praise him, and how to praise him. So many times people are hesitant about worshiping the Lord, and instead of yielding to worship they make excuses for why they can’t worship.
As long as I have breath in my body, I will praise him. I know what it feels like to be lost and hopeless; but God gave me a second chance to live life more abundantly and nothing will separate us. The first time I walked out trying to discover who I was; only to discover that I had left who I was for something less satisfying (the world). Years later I left a second time searching for something more than what the world had to offer, and my search was futile, because the most important part of my existence was left behind when I walked away. One day in prayer the Lord promised to direct my steps back to the truth.
I thought that not being under his wing of protection really didn’t matter that much, but I was so wrong. My God is faithful to supply all our need according to his riches in glory. We may not always understand his will or his plan, but he knows the beginning from the ending and he promises to never leave or forsake us, and that’s enough for me.
It’s a blessed day and we are ready to worship. This week’s Lattereign emphasis worship.
