We are not confined to praising our God just in the mornings or evenings. The scripture verse tells us we can praise Him when we are led to. The words say, “Seven times a day.” Let’s remember that seven is a perfect number.
When we take the time to praise our Lord, we are giving Him glory and honor due Him. Our praises place our hearts and souls at His feet and we give honor to Him for who He is as well as what He has done for us.
Not all times for praising the Lord are joyous; sometimes we have to look for the smallest glimmer of light to praise Him for. A family I know is awaiting the result of a tragic situation that occurred last winter. I praise the Lord for their standing by one their family members during the months since that tragic day.
Some of our praises are that God will bring us through a trial or a trouble. The news is bad but we can enter God’s presence and give it to Him. We give thanks for Him being there with us as we go through the steps to come out from under the burden we carry.
There are times in our lives we have to praise God for things that are personal, these acts He does that no one else knows about. But, the important stance we should take is to praise the Lord when we feel the Holy Spirit’s urge.
