When we are struggling with insecurity, doubt or fear, let us stir ourselves to remember all that God has done for us. For He longs that we seek Him in this way... with grateful hearts of praise.
This, to be sure, takes faith. For in difficult times, it can be hard to find the good. That is why God wants us to look up rather than around; seeking Him rather than what this world offers.
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6 ESV
So how can we begin this... the process of praising Him for all He has done? Simply start speaking to Him with simple words. Think of anything in your life that is good and give God praise for it. Even the smallest of things can lead our heart to remember greater things.
If you cannot think of anything in particular, look for Him in the Psalms. For there are many words of praise to recite to Him.
This is what God tells our hearts...
I love those who love me,
And those who seek me diligently will find me.
Proverbs 8:17 NKJV
How beautiful that He makes Himself available to us... nothing else required but our heart.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
