When things are going the way you want them, when it seems like all your prayers are being answered, it is easy to praise God, to worship God, to shout about all the great things He has done for us. But what about those times when nothing is going our way? When we're sick, down and out, depressed, broke, alone; Are you praising God then? I will be the first to admit that it is difficult at times to praise God at these moments, but I have found that this is actually when it counts more. In fact, I have discovered that my situations, my STORMS, become easier to deal with when I focus on praising God instead of focusing on my problems. In the book of Job Ch. 1, it says in verse 20-22:
20 Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshiped. 21 And he said:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
And naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
22 In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.
Job had just lost his possessions and his children, yet he praised and worshiped the Lord. Can you say that you fall to the ground and worship God when everything around you becomes unbearable? Share your thoughts on our website.
