I feel my help coming as I get up from praying on my kneeling prayer pillow! I say this as I read the 41st chapter of Psalms earlier today because of what someone else is experiencing at this time in his life. I see how God comes to the rescue of His people in times of trouble and despair.
The Old Testament Books are filled with stories for our example of the goodness of the Lord. He knows that we will have times of weakness because of what we have been anointed to do for the kingdom. The enemy wants us to give up and believe that the thing that we know that God has told us would come to pass won't happen. But God is always on top of Him game. He strengthens us in the midst of it all.
As He strengthens us to persevere and manifest, we are to remember to offer up praise, adoration and glory to God for the things that He has done as we pray on our kneeling prayer pillow. The following scripture is an example of what we should do to show thanksgiving to God.
Take 60 seconds and meditate on the following scripture pertaining to the giver of strength:
Sing aloud unto God our strength; make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel,the pleasant harp with the psaltery. Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day. King James Version
Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! Begin the music, strike the tambourine, play the melodious harp and lyre. New International Version
The Lord makes us strong! Sing praises! Sing to Israel's God! Sing, accompanied by drums; pluck the sweet lyre and harp. The Living Bible
Write a prayer to the hand of Him who strengthens based on the memorized verse:
Thank you Jesus for knowing when I get weak. Thank you for coming to my rescue. You will never leave me or forsaken me.
Write down what God's will is for you as the one who strengthens based on the memorized verse:
God wants me to give praise to Him as He is with me through the thick and the thin, my highs and my lows and my valleys and my victories.
Write down what God wants you to go and do based on His strength to reap the harvest:
God wants me to let others know that if they will trust God as they go through, He will strengthen them along their journey. When they are strengthened, they are to be mindful to offer up praise and adoration to Him.
In conclusion, we are to offer up praise as we are strengthened. Praise is a sign of rejoicing to the Lord that let's him know that we believe that everything is going to be all right. By the way, you can offer up praise to God as you utilize your kneeling prayer pillow to pray without ceasing.
