Just Pray

Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.
James 5:13 NASB

Every person who has ever lived has suffered. It could be the everyday struggle to just make ends meet or as devastating as living life without a treasured love one. Troubles looming over us at every turn.

Our suffering, troubles, anguish have a purpose. It teaches us our need for our Sovereign God. It brings Him glory as we let Him lead the way. When we pray we ask God to intervene in, be a part of, our life. In turn we bless Him when we cheerfully sing His praise.

🌹Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
Psalms 50:15 NASB

Thank You God for hearing my prayers, seeing me through hard times, and restoring me to the joy of You, Lord. I sing praises to Your name and glory be to You, Sovereign God. Amen.

Trust Without Fear

In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man (flesh) do to me?
In God, whose word I praise, In the Lord, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust (or trust without fear), I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?
For You have delivered my soul from death, Indeed my feet from stumbling, So that I may walk before God In the light of the living (life).
Psalms 56:4‭, ‬10‭-‬11‭, ‬13 NASB

As God’s child should I not instinctively  cling with trust to my Father?
This brings my mind back to my child-rearing days when my little ones would cling to me when a stranger was near. It was okay for them to laugh at someone making faces at them as long as they were in the arms of their parent in whom they trusted.
When they were learning to walk, they would hold tight to my hand. They instinctively trusted the hand that would hold them steady as they walked without stumbling.

God has delivered my soul from death, so that I may walk before Him in the light of life without fear of what man can do to me. Yes, in God, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid!

The Lord is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?
Psalms 118:6 NASB

so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?”
Hebrews 13:6 NASB

🌹Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:28 NASB

O God of My Praise

But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
John 4:23‭-‬24 NASB

🌹My flesh is unworthy to worship You O God of my praise!! I will put no confidence in my flesh to worship and praise You but will worship You in spirit. I fear You Lord and desire to serve You in truth with all my heart; as I consider what great thing Jesus, my Savior, did on the cross for me. But He returned to You Father and the Holy Spirit was sent! What great things You have done for me. I can truly worship You in Spirit and truth because Your Holy Spirit abides in me. I can truly say what great things You have done for me O God of my praise! Amen.
Philippians 3:3/1 Samuel 12:24/John 16:7 NASB

How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?
John 5:44 NASB

Where does glory come from? I believe there is but one source. God Himself. Worthy of honor, praise, because no one, NO ONE can compare to the attributes of God. If there is anything of glory in us it comes from God.
Even Jesus stated “I do not receive glory from men;” “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me,”.

I know I struggle with this and maybe you do too. One of my love languages is adoration and I sometimes, a lot, seek the approval of men rather than the approval of God. It’s a fine line but it comes down to the fact that anything gloified in me is not me but God in me! For it is not he who commends himself that is approved, but he whom the Lord commends. So let us strive to give any glory given to us back to God from whom it originates.
John 5:41/John 8:54/John 12:43/2 Corinthians 10:18 NASB

🌹Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the temple, and the temple was filled with the cloud and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord.
Ezekiel 10:4 NASB
🌹Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17 NASB

Philippians 4:8-9

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely (lovable and gracious), whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on (ponder) these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:8‭-‬9 NASB

Jesus You are truth, the truth. You are honorable, Lord God, worthy of honor and praise. You are right, the only righteous God. You are pure and holy. God of grace and worthy of love. You, Sovereign God are of good, excellent repute. God, I will dwell on You, the embodiment of all these attributes. Your excellency is worthy of my praise.
I have learned and received and heard instruction through Your word and godly people and want to practice these attributes so as to be counted among the godly. The mouth speaks from that which fills the heart; may my heart bring forth what is good out of the good treasure of my heart. My desire is to walk in an acceptable way in Christ’s service, to be acceptable to God and approved by men that they may see from my excellent behavior and good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation. God of peace, be with me as I practice these attributes. I pray in the name of Jesus, my Lord. Amen.
Luke 6:45/Romans 14:18/1 Peter 2:12 NASB

🌹Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us.

Philippians 3:2b-3

beware of the false circumcision, for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh,
Philippians 3:2b – 3 NASB

Glory to Your name O God!! You are worthy of my praise and worship in the Spirit and glory of my Lord, Jesus Christ.
Your love, Father, brought the true circumcision, through the sacrifice of the Son, and the circumcision of the heart by the Holy Spirit.
God, create in me a person who does not seek the praise of man, putting no confidence in the flesh, but seek Your praise alone. This I pray in Jesus name, amen.
Romans 2:29/Galatians 6:15 NASB

🌹Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
