Transforming Your Life

When a person does a job well, we find ourselves wanting to praise him. But what about our praise to the Lord for who He is and what He has done for us? Charles Spurgeon writes:

The Lord always deserves to be praised for what He is in Himself, for His works of creation and providence, for His goodness towards His creatures, and especially for the transcendent act of redemption.

Praise is a constant reminder of God’s unconditional love, His all-knowing wisdom, and His unchanging power. The more realistic we are about our weaknesses and faults, the more we comprehend God’s graciousness toward us.

Spurgeon goes on to say, “It is always beneficial to praise the Lord; it cheers the day and brightens the night; it lightens toil and softens sorrow.”

Praise reminds of us of who God is, and who we really are—sinful human beings, redeemed and saved solely by the grace of God. Without Christ we are nothing, but in Christ we have every good thing.

Because Jesus Christ died on the cross for the sins of mankind, those who believe in Him have newness of life and the promise of eternity with Him. But we don’t have to wait for eternity to enter God’s presence. Through praise we can enter His presence every minute of every day.

As we praise God, He begins to work in our lives, conforming us to His image. Our prayer should be, “Lord, make me into the person You desire me to be.” His power will transform your life and give you strength and hope for what He has called you to do.

Whatever your past difficulties may be, there continues to be many reasons to praise the Lord. For it is through our praise that we enter His presence—into His very throne room. There is no better place to be.

I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands (Psalm 63:4).
