The Power of Your Words
“Psalm 100 gives us clear instructions for coming into the presence of God. We’re told to come into His presence with singing, to enter His gates with thanksgiving, to come into His courts with praise. Singing, thanksgiving, and praise---all these actions are expressed through words.
The reason satan doesn’t want you to be vocal in your praise to God is because he knows that those kinds of words connect you to God in awesome ways. The simple truth is that the only people who experience the full glory and joy of God’s presence are thankful people.
Satan will do everything he can to discourage you from expressing gratitude and praise. Frankly, he wants you to be a grumbler. Why? Because grumbling is an expression of unbelief and ingratitude (two big ways to short-circuit God’s power in your life.) Praise on the other hand, is an expression of faith and gratitude
“Snippets”—clips, morsels, fragments from something I’ve read
recently…something that has ministered to me or someone else. They are meant to encourage, challenge, or cause us to ponder. They may even cause you to run to the nearest bookstore and pick up a copy of the book they are snipped from.
If you forward “Snippets” to anyone, please send it in its entirety, not deleting the ‘original source of author’”.
