Unleashing the Power of Praise

My earliest remembrance of the power of praise happened in my first year of marriage. My wife, Ruthie, and I got hit with a flood of bills and my job wasn’t designed to make anyone rich. You could say I was concerned—but actually, it would be more accurate to say, I was quite low. There are many occasions where it’s easier to see life as a half-empty cup, instead of half-full.  

One day Ruthie was sitting in the living room of our apartment talking with her sister. I walked in and remember saying: “There’s only one thing a person can do when he feels this low—and that is praise the Lord.” I walked into an adjoining bedroom and fell flat on my face with one agenda—to give glory to God beyond my woes.

At that exact moment, God unleashed His provision!

My sister and mother lived next door to us. We didn’t have a phone yet, so if my sister wanted us for something, she would go out the back door and scream over to our apartment.

As I fell flat on my bed, and before I could get one word of praise out, I heard my sister bellowing my name. I stuck my head out of the window and asked her what she wanted. She said that Rex, a lonely old Christian gentleman a few doors away that Ruthie and I had befriended, had just called her and wanted to see me.

Immediately, I got off the bed and headed to Rex’s home. As soon as I went into his house, he said, “The Holy Spirit just spoke to me and told me I was supposed to give you this amount of money.” He gave me a check that was enough to get us caught up on our finances! I knew, because of the incredible timing, that this was no coincidence. Especially, since Rex knew for sure that he heard the voice of the Holy Spirit.

This became a big lesson in my life. Countless times, and in many ways, the Bible tells us to give thanks in everything. Thanksgiving unleashes faith, and faith moves God!  I am not saying that you should remember to give thanks only in this season. I am challenging you, today, to make thanksgiving and gratitude an integral part of who you are. It is not always easy, and that’s why in Hebrews 13:15, it is called “the sacrifice of praise.”

God is worthy to be praised despite our circumstances. Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith, it is impossible to please God, for he that comes to God must believe…that He rewards those who diligently seek Him.” We can praise Him, because we know He has the answer for our need.

So, today, if you are low, tap into the privilege and the power of praise, and experience atrue Thanksgiving Holiday!
