** The Lord gave me this word yesterday as I was driving to church, and said to share it with My people. I had no idea that the He was going to make a way for me to deliver this word to the church that I was visiting.***
Hear what the Lord has to say:
I am a jealous God, please stop giving away My praise. Every time you complain about your problems, vent your frustrations over what you don’t have and what you are going through, you take away from the praise you should be giving Me. My word says to give thanks always for all things. Yes, you are to praise Me while you are going through your trials and tribulations
Please get your mind off of things which are not of Me. I see all you are going through. I know your needs. I am preparing you for greater things. You must be prepared for the work I have called you to do.
My Child, I have not forgotten about you, nor the things that surround you. Have you forgotten who I am? I AM THE ONE who suffered and died so that you may have life, and have it more abundantly. You won’t have a life filled with abundance if your mind is focused on your problems, circumstances and situations. Yes, I promised you blessings, but your mind must be on Me and My words. If you will follow My instructions and meditate in My words day and night, and then you will have good success.
So stop giving away My praise! There are no blessings in complaining and worrying, so why waste your time doing things that are not of Me? Lift up My name, sing songs of praises to Me in the midst of the storm. I’ve shown you how much I love you, now show Me how much you love me and STOP GIVING AWAY MY PRAISE!
PSALM 34:1 I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES: HIS PRAISE SHALL CONTINUALLY BE IN MY MOUTH.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
