Praising Changes Us

 

"I began arising early each morning to spend time worshiping the Lord," reported Ann who was hungry for God's presence. "I used the Psalms, singing them back to God.

After about six months, several people at different times made comments like, 'There's something different about you.'"

She said that during this time she thought her hair was exceptionally unattractive, so she was certain it was not her physical appearance. Her worship brought the presence of God into her life in a fresh way and others noticed.

"Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it...I will come to you and bless you," God promised the Israelites (Exodus 20:24). Meeting with God and worshiping Him is the highest happiness and the highest objective we can have in life. No sacrifice is too great.

Dear Father, I praise You because of Your faithfulness to meet me when I worship You.

"I will meet you and speak to you; there also I will meet with the Israelites, and the place will be consecrated by my glory" (Exodus 29:42, 43).
