• “He will enable you to overcome the giants in your temperament …He allows adversity and trial in our lives in order to reveal our true nature to us. Thus He humbles us and breaks us, so that He can transform us into His likeness.” – Annie Poonen

Two Reasons to Praise by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/20/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why were you created?

“To try and make the world a better place.”

“I was born to shop!”

“I think I really want to serve others in my life.”

Nancy: Do you ever wonder what your purpose is on this earth? I’ll tell you. We were made to bring God pleasure. That’s why we praise Him: because we were created to do it.

There’s another reason we should praise God. Praise is the number-one occupation in heaven. The apostle John sees a vision of heaven in Revelation 4 and 5. He sees more than 100 million angels who have one full-time responsibility: to worship the One who sits on the throne and the Lamb at His right hand.

When we praise the Lord, it’s like a dress rehearsal for what we’ll spend an eternity doing in heaven.

How much “practice” are you getting for that eternal concert? Are you doing what you were created to do? Are you praising God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
