104. Praise Him always

I prayed and asked God what this week's message should be. And I felt the prompting in my spirit to look at today's devotion in my daily devotion book - God Whispers. So I would like to share it with you:

"When You send Your Spirit, new life is born to replenish all the living of the earth. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath!" Psalm 104:30, 33

I send My Spirit to revive, to encourage, to strengthen and to refill the living of the earth with new life. I move with splendour and with mighty power. I am all consuming and all powerful. All praise is due to Me. I love it when My children come filled with love to adore and worship Me. I love to have them close and to feel their presence near. My heart then overflows with love and joy and the abundance of life then permeates into the delicate cells of their beings. Come into My presence with a thankful heart and experience this. Allow My presence to overflow into every aspect of your life. Stand amazed at the tranquillity it brings. Stop and listen to the birds singing and appreciate the flowers blooming. They sing and bloom to show you a piece of My heart. Birds singing reflect My heart of joy. They sing despite all circumstances, it is continuous and it will last until all creation disappears. Flowers blooming reflect the constant new life that I have within Me, they reflect a part of My beauty and radiate My fragrance to all. Learn from the birds and the flowers. Bubble over with My joy and sing My praises always. Reflect My newness of life to a dead world, radiate My beauty in you and spread the fragrance of My love. Be in full bloom, with Me as your roots, supplying all the nutrition you need. I came to give you more than enough to succeed.

Isn't this a wonderful word for us all now during this COVID-19 time? God wants us to praise Him no matter what. Therein lies so much power and grace for a time such as this. He wants us to rise above it all as we saw last week. He wants us to be an example to the world during this dark time. He wants us to continue radiating and spreading His loving fragrance to this world. And how do we do that? By growing in the Spirit and receiving all the nutrition we need from Him and Him alone.

Spend time in His presence, breathe in His heavenly air, see yourself in the throneroom of God glorifying Him, picture yourself talking to Him and enjoying His magnificent presence. Allow Him to open up your eyes to the spiritual. Ask His guidance on a daily basis and be open to be led by Him. This is your time to shine. Reflect Him. He gave us all more than enough to succeed. All glory on High!

I would like to end off with a song from Matt Maher - Alive and breathing:

Joy still comes in the morning

Hope still walks with the hurting

If you're still alive and breathing

Praise the Lord

Don't stop dancing and dreaming

There's still Good News worth repeating

So lift your head and keep singing

Praise the Lord

Isn't this just a beautiful song? Especially during this time, don't stop dreaming, there is always Good News worth repeating. If you are alive and breathing, praise the Lord!! Hallelujah!

Father thank you so much for providing us with everything. We love You, we glorify You, You are all we will ever need. In You is life and peace everlasting. We praise Your mighty Name. Amen

    Every morning when I have my quiet time, there is a pigeon in the tree singing "Weet jy, ek het jou lief"... "Know this, I love you so" !! We are fortunate to live close to mountains and the ocean where we experience His Presence in a very real sense.
