Last night my weary husband confessed that he’d grown tired of the fight. Every day, inch by inch, we struggle to rise above the pollution and take a breath in a world where the air is thick with discord, selfishness, and violence.
If we constantly listen to the broken melody that surrounds us, a spirit of discouragement will prevail in our hearts and minds.
We must change the channel, turn off the noise and tune into our Savior.
Tonight, we experienced sweet communion as we lifted up our voices and raised up our eyes to the heavens.
- We remembered Christ has already won the victory.
- We rejoiced because nothing is too hard for our Mighty Warrior God.
- We re-calibrated our thinking by rehearsing the Truth.
Let praise be your anthem.
Focusing on God’s majesty fills up your lungs with fresh wind. You will move forward with a renewed perspective and triumphant a heart.
Praise is God-centered breathing. Read Psalm 150.
- Where should you breathe praise? (see v. 1)
- Why should you worship with your lungs? (v. 2)
- How are the psalmist’s actions characteristic of an anthem: a rousing, reverential, revolutionary song? (vs. 3-5).
- Who is called to worship? (v. 6)
Read Psalm 28:6-7. Why does praise pour out from the depths of David’s heart?
Listen to this Anthem of Praise and celebrate God’s goodness and glory at your own private praise party.
