IAM to Praise the Lord

PSALMS 148:4-5 NLT Praise him, skies above! Praise him, vapors high above the clouds! Let every created thing give praise to the lord , for he issued his command, and they came into being.

Psalms 148 is one long run on sentence with one message:  PRAISE THE LORD!

Take the time to read the whole chapter and in your mind envision yourself in the grand scheme of the universe.
The heavens , skies, angels, sun, moon, stars, skies, earth, creatures, kings, rulers, men, women, Let them ALL Praise the Lord!

Let’s zoom out of our own existence to understand we are one voice and one life that is willingly praising the Lord.
Why are we willing?  Because as we focus on the greatness that HE is! On the amazing power that is our God is, we can only fall onto our knees, raise our hands in surrender and give him the praise that is due.

Taking the time to zoom out and get perspective is a big help to get a proper understand of the power of our God, in relation to our issues.  Praising God brings our heart and minds back onto the most important thing that matters.  It creates proper perspective about the fact of who is really in charge in this big world.
Then with proper perspective, we pray for miracles with supreme faith in knowing God holds all the keys to Kingdom.  God created and designed the body, mind, liver, pancreas, vertabrae, blood and heart.  He knows how to put back in order, what is not right.  God knows how to control the minds of men, kings and governments.  Praising God, increases our faith in the only one who really matters.
 God's Handiwork

While you are out and about, driving to work, look up and see the sky and clouds.  Understand their beauty and uniqueness are all praising the Lord.  The trees, shift and sway, and they are dancing in God’s presence to point back to the wonderful creator.

Let every created thing, praise the Lord!  He spoke us into existence.

That life giving word!  Gave you life, brought you into relationship with the creator of the universe.
And our created response is to live our lives, and point everything back to him.

Let’s praise him
Let’s give him all the glory
Let’s have faith for all things, because we have a proper understanding of how this thing works

IAM created with an amazing purpose.
IAM created by an awesome creator
IAM the heartbeat of our God
IAM a beautiful reflection of our all powerful Lord.
IAM one voice in the wonderful chorus of singers that are all harmoniously praising the Creator
IAM to Praise the Lord

Join in the Chorus of all Creation Today

 

IAM a Reader of Instructions

PSALMS 19:7-10 NLT
The instructions of the lord are perfect, reviving the soul.
The decrees of the lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of the lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the lord are clear,
giving insight for living.
Reverence for the lord is pure, lasting forever.
The laws of the lord are true; each one is fair.
They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb.

Read the instruction manual is a common reply in the tech support world.  Appropriate to solve 99% of the problems encountered.

Funny how it applies to our lives as well.

I am truly convinced that the answers to all of our problems are already written down in the Holy Bible.

psalm-19-7

The instructions are perfect, and they revive the soul.
Just the concept that reading a book can revive our souls can seem pretty abstract, until the scripture lights up with stories of miracles of healing.  When I read how the heroes of faith were filled with the spirit of God, and then went out and defeated thousands upon thousand.
Or when I read about the heroes of our faith spoke the good news about God with power and grace.  Then I am motivated and revived in my soul.

All the wisdom to handle people, situations, drama, business and family is already written in the bible.
But maybe we read it , and we don’t want to listen to what it says.

 Are you lacking true Joy in your heart? Maybe it’s time to ask God which commandments we aren’t paying close attention to.

Everyday as I read the word, something new and fresh clearly speaks to me.  I love how that word is perfect for my current situation in life.
The word gives insight for my life, how to handle all situations

 There are multiple reality shows about peoples’ quest for Gold! Fools, when they could be searching for the treasures of the universe in the scriptures.

Proclaim the truth in the truth!

IAM a Reader of Instructions
IAM Revived in my Soul
IAM Wise
IAM Joyful
IAM Living with Holy Insight

And the converse: Rebuke the lies of the enemy
You are not stranded alone with a roadmap
You are not empty with nothing to give
You are not dumb
You are not filled with anger and spite
You are not just stumbling around in the dark with no vision

I hope and pray that God will give you a desire to get back into His word!
I hope and pray that even today, the words will pop out from the page and give you the soul nourishment you need to live in the power that God has called us to.

May God bless your bible reading to be filled with passion and life.  I hope and pray that God would put a love for the scriptures inside your heart.
