(2 Chronicles 20:22 )

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please give me the strength to live today in your Spirit. I will no longer walk in the flesh, but live in the Spirit. It is the key to me living for YOU each day. In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

What are you supposed to do when you are down, when the walls of life seem to be closing in, and you have no joy in your heart? Praise God!!! In my darkest moments, in those times when I am most down, I have always found the express lane out of the valley, back to the mountaintop, is by praising God.

Trust me, I know that it is at those moments in life we least feel like praising God. Our natural inclination is to curse God. That is a human reaction. But it is in our praise that we recognize who God is. It is in our praise that we realize how much He loves us. It is in our praise that we understand God is on our side. The quickest way out of the valley is by praising God!

The way we usually end up in the valley is because of our rebellion. Not always, but we often end up in the valley because we have been disobedient and tried to do it our way, instead of God’s way. Normally, there is no one to blame for being in the valley but ourselves. God understands our weaknesses. He understands our nature. He also loves us enough that even when we rebel and disobey Him, He doesn’t abandon us. We may abandon Him..but He NEVER leaves us!

It is that unconditional love He has for us that we must tap into when we are down and need to get the joy back into our life. The way we tap into that love is through our praise. Our praise tells God that we acknowledge Him. We thank Him for loving us and not leaving us. We may try, but can never live a successful, happy, blessed life without Him. Our praise is our recognition that He is our God and we are His creation.

I want to encourage you today. No matter what may be going on in your life. No matter how difficult things may be…take some time today to Praise God. Praise Him for all the good things and all the blessings. As bad as things may be, they could be much worse. His love and mercy has kept you and helped you through the difficult times, now praise Him for loving you so much. Show Him how much you love Him this day by your praise offering to our God and Creator.

I love you so much. I really do care about you. I want you to know the great joy and peace and blessings of this life. Don’t let some bad decisions destroy the most important thing you have in this life–your relationship with God. You can reconcile that relationship right now, this very day. You can start on that road by simply giving God the praise He deserves.

Recognize Him for who He is–God Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth–your Father! Tell Him today how much you love Him through your praise. Remember, God is on your side and will restore your joy, your peace, and your happiness if you simply go to Him and let Him. To get out of the valley, praise your way out of the valley and back onto the mountaintop today!

***MAY FINANCIAL UPDATE: PRAISE GOD, we have covered the balance of our April shortfall!!! As we head into the final 7 days of May, it is critical for us to work on covering the $40,000 we require for our May internet operations and the $25,000 we require for our May TV programs! As of today, $3,000 of our May operations have come in.
$12,000 of our May operations are now several weeks past due, and I am praying for 1 or 2 of our friends to help me with a special one-time gift of $5,000 or more in the next few days. If everyone else will simply pray, give as the Lord leads you over the coming weeks, I am standing in faith that the $62,000 we require over the last 7 days of May will come in so we end this month with all of our ministry operations current!!! OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!
