Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Surrounded By Praise”
Text: Nehemiah 12:31,38,39
“So I brought the leaders of Judah up on the wall, and appointed two large thanksgiving choirs. One went to the right hand on the wall toward the Refuse Gate.”
“The other thanksgiving choir went the opposite way, and I was behind them with half of the people on the wall, going past the Tower of the Ovens as far as the Broad Wall,
and above the Gate of Ephraim, above the Old Gate, above the Fish Gate, the Tower of Hananel, the Tower of the Hundred, as far as the Sheep Gate; and they stopped by the Gate of the Prison.”
“Surrounded By Praise,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Nehemiah appointed two Thanksgiving choirs with the people to surround Jerusalem with Praise and Worship and with Great sacrifices: “for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and the children also rejoiced, so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard afar off.”(v.43).
Has God made you rejoice with great joy?
Oh, “When I think of the goodness of Jesus
And All He’s Done For Me
My Soul Cries Out HALLELUJAH!
I thank God for saving me....
Oh I thank God for saving me
I thank God for saving me
My soul cries out HALLELUJAH I thank God for saving me.”
Even before Nehemiah gathered the singers together, these singers “had made themselves villages all around Jerusalem. Jerusalem, the City of God, was Surrounded By Praise at all times!
The Warrior’s Heart is the spiritual kingdom where God reigns as King. We surround our heart with the sacrifices of praise and worship of our God and King!
“I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I sought the LORD, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.” (Psa.34:1-4)
We Surround Our Heart With Praise and Worship when we Rehearse the Wonderful Works of God in our Life.
Yes, He has put a new song in my mouth:
“He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth--
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the LORD.” (Psa.40:2-3)
God Himself Surrounds You and I with Praise also!
“The LORD your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17).
Your Commander and King Surrounds you with Gladness. Quiets you in His Love, and Rejoices over you with Singing, all the time!
Oh Hallelujah! We Surround the walls of our heart with Praise and Worship to God - and
God Surrounds you and I with His Gladness, Love, and Singing. And together our Praise is heard afar off by people in this world. We are Warriors of Praise! Surrounded By Praise! Ooooh Rah!
