Z71-05/17/15 - What am I supposed to do when I, frankly…Just don't feel like praising the Lord? The short answer is; "Praise the Lord Anyway!" And yes, we know that is not easy…but it is effective!
The Bible tells us when he was down, "David encouraged himself in the LORD his God." (—1 Samuel 30:6b) Sometimes we have to force ourselves to call to memory, the good things God has done for us in the past, in order to get excited about the fact the He will continue to care for us in the future! Know how, when you start thinking about someone who's done you wrong…it only takes a short time to get a good "mad" worked up—well it's the same way when we begin to speak words of gratitude and Faith in times of discouragement and depression. It works, as sure as God's Word is True!
Join us today as we look at "Living according to the Spirit" rather than walking in the flesh. One leads to Life eternal and the other draws us into death. God has made ALL provision, now let us put forth the concerted effort to obey the instructions that He, so clearly laid out in His Word. You can do it…we know you can! (...and He said you can!)
We Love You in Christ,
