Learn how to praise Him in the mist of the storm

Your situation should never dictate your faith and confession. You should learn to praise God even in the mist of a storm or when its sunny. The bible says, in Joel 3:10 “Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong”. Our confession of Christ promises should never be dictated by our circumstances. We should always praise and confess Gods promises even if the hour seems dark.

Read what happened to Paul and Silas after they had been falsely accused, beaten and thrown in jail.

Acts 16 “27And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house”

AMAZING…all Paul  and Silas did was simply praise God and he was loosed from his prison. He didn’t complain he just praised God. And even though Paul & Silas were loosed from their prison they didn’t even run out, they remained there until their ENEMY brought them out. WOW I guess its true what the word says in Proverbs 16:7 “When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him”

    Thank you for this post. I appreciated being reminded of the truth that joy is not dependent on a feeling or circumstances. Peace, love and joy are natural truths flowing from the Father, and it’s our responsibility to let those truths reign rather than our ever-changing emotions or situations. Good word.
