2 small words that have had a huge impact on my life at the moment.
I had the privilege of speaking at Church last Sunday night. I say it is a privilege as it is not something I take for granted, and realise not everybody gets the opportunity. So even though it is totally out of my comfort zone, I am learning to embrace it, and see the Blessings in it rather than looking at the scary side!
One of the worship songs we sang was called “Even when it hurts” by Hillsong United, it is such a beautiful song, you can listen to it here if you would like to. The minute I heard it, knew God wanted to use this song to minister to people. I had prepared a long message, and God said to me “Just step aside and let me deal and heal.” So I cut my message short and let God do what God does!
The overriding theme for the night was “Even when….”
Even when my strength is lost, will you praise Him.
Even when it hurts, will you praise Him.
Even when it doesn’t make sense, will you praise Him.
Even when it hurts like hell, will you praise Him.
Even when, even when, even when!
“What is your Even When?”
What is it that you are going through that you have to say “you know what God, even when…..I will still praise you!
Because you know what friends? He is worthy of our praise….no matter what.
Through the good seasons.
Through the tough seasons.
Through all the seasons we may find ourselves walking in.
He is worthy of our praise.
So as you go out this week and face whatever season you are walking through, can I encourage you to praise Him. Praise Him because He is good. Praise Him because that’s what He deserves, and praise Him for no other reason than because He is God, and he is always, always worthy.
