Get A Little Crazy!!!
The kids and I had a praise-jam session in the car last night. We were singing at the top of our lungs. We were clapping and swaying to the music. With shouts of joy (literally) and gladness we were lifting up praises to Him. Had you driven by us you probably would have pointed and said, "Look at those crazy people."
I woke up this morning still buzzing from our jam session.
There is something magical about praising our God.
It transforms our minds.
It heals our hearts.
Our worries fade away.
We are set free.
This morning I'm meditating on Psalm 100.
As you read it and meditate on it with me, take some time for a little praise-jam session of your own.
Get a little crazy.
Sing and dance.
Shout for joy with words of thanksgiving.
Give thanks to Him unashamedly.
Bask in His goodness and glory.
Praise His name.
Get your children involved!
Throw on some worship music and turn your home into a house of praise!
Because as you give God the praise and glory due His name, He will remove the shackles on your feet. Whatever you are bound by today will be loosened and you will be set free.
"Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth,
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his,
we are his people,
the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations."
I pray my kids would have hearts of worship and would be willing to get a little crazy for You. I pray they would unashamedly shout for joy to You. I pray they would worship You with gladness and with joyful songs. I pray they would enter into Your presence on a daily basis with thanksgiving and praise. May they give thanks to You in all things. May they praise Your name freely. For You are good, Your love endures forever, and You are faithful from generation to generation. And as they lift up praises and thanksgiving to You, would you transform their minds, heal their hearts, dissipate their worries, and set them free from whatever they are bound by. Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus!
