Glorify First

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 89:1-4

Ethan the Ezrahite is the writer of Psalm 89, and as he begins his prayerful song, we see a praising and glorifying of God. But what we discover as we read through the remainder of this psalm is that circumstances for Ethan the Ezrahite and those living at this time aren't good. That being the case, he is calling out to God, asking Him for help and to take action in a distressing situation.

So often when we find ourselves facing trouble or when we're in distress, our prayers consist primarily of pleas for help and to fix our situation with little, or even no, praising, thanking or recognition of God for who He is. So these opening verses serve as a good reminder and example of our need to recognize and glorify God--first, before we ask Him to watch over, guide and provide for us in and through every circumstance.

How does starting out your prayers with thanksgiving and praise impact your attitude, thinking and ultimately the requests you put before God? Tami

It is one of the ways I can give back to the Lord Who has done so many great things for me!By thanking the Lord first gives me hope knowing that God is able, God has answered my prayers and He has kept His promises to me.
I can then come boldly to Him with my needs and request!

Praising the Lord for His love and faithfulness is a joy for me to proclaim to Him and others!
