Praise for the Brokenhearted

Standard

Devotion:  Psalm 147:1-7

Have you allowed your circumstances to obscure your view of God?  The Lord promises to inhabit the praises of His people. He also declares, “I am the Lord and I change not.”  While we live in this world, our circumstances may change on a daily basis, however, the attributes and characteristics of God never change.  While we are still in this world, there will be sorrow and death but the One who offers “beauty for ashes and strength for fear, gladness for mourning and peace for despair,” walks beside you and gives you hope.

Author and teacher Beth Moore stated, “God is who He says He is.  God will do what He says He will do.”  If you will dare to utter a sacrifice of praise on a daily basis; right in the middle of your darkest days, Jehovah Rapha will begin to heal your broken heart, by pouring out the balm of His powerful presence.

Many of the Psalms were penned by the psalmists; during the harshest of trials and tribulations.  David called God His Refuge; when he was hiding in a dark cave.  He called the Lord his Rock and his Fortress; as he was about to go into battle.  David declared in Psalm 145, “Everyday I will bless you and praise Your Name forever and ever.”

Jehovah El Roi, sees and knows every heartache and every heartbreak; you will ever experience, while living in this world. He longs to be your Comforter, your Sustainer, your Light and your Deliverer.

In Motion:

Lift up your head and give the Lord a sacrifice of praise today.

    I’ve been lookig into this a lot lately. It’s just so hard to do! Thanks for sharing this encouraging truth. Love you!

  2. I love you Stephanie. It is the hardest thing to do but if we will practice it one praise at a time, one day at a time…the Lord will replace the pain, not with happiness, but with pure joy..His joy..It becomes a sacrifice of praise.
