The Garment of Praise

Prayer Precept June 2017

“The Garment of Praise”

A garment is something we wear, we put it on.  We choose to wear it. 

Praise is prayer too and can happen alone in our quiet time, surrounded by work-mates or in the midst of the congregation.

Hopefully, it is clean and neat and ready to wear.  If it is crumpled and dirtied by the brushes with negativity of this life, it is not yet suitable to be the garment of a believer.  But, we cannot clean it up ourselves.

It has to be washed in the blood and the purity that comes from intimate time with the Messiah-time to commune with Him gives us a fresh perspective.  His mercies are new every morning.

In “The Healing Creed”  by Becky Dvorak is this statement:

 “There is a supernatural garment He gives to us that causes us to step into the realm of victory.  It is called praise.  We see throughout the Bible that God’s people praise their way through seemingly impossible situations…  Whatever the situation might be, praise will lift you out of the pit of despair.”

“When we praise God during the storms of life, our focus shifts from the uncertainty in the storm to the greatness of our God to see us through.  Hope arises, worry lifts off of us, clarity of mind comes forth, and negative emotions lose their power when we praise the Lord.”

Romans 15:13 AMP “May the God of your hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing (through the experience of your faith)  that by the power of the Holy Spirit  you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”

Lamentations 3:22-23  “  It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving kindness that we are not consumed, because His {tender} compassionas fail not.  They are new every morning; great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lamentations 3:22-23 [Full Chapter]

It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness.
