God desires your Total Praise Now, not later
The verse is found in Ezekiel 36:26 says "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." The Lord has been speaking to me about how He is going to do some changing in my heart, to make it sensitive to the point that I will be driven by His truth the more so. To desire more of God's heart and get rid of the things which are not apart of God's heart. I tell you now family this has made me look at myself in a different way. And oh boy my flesh has been fighting me on this the whole time, because how many of you know that when you do what God says the enemy pulls out all the tricks?
In my devotion and prayer this morning I heard the Lord speaking to me about how we His children sit and complain about many things, how we stay focused on our own agendas and how we lack when it comes to giving God "total praise." When they find themselves in trouble instead of giving God total praise we mummer and complain like the children of Israel. God gave them manna all day He gave them fire by night to keep them warm He gave them cool shade as they went through the desert during the day. And they only praised God when He delivered them.
I plead with you today, don't take praising God for granted, it's an honor to praise Him in freedom. You and I will never know the out come of the webs we find ourselves in but one thing is for sure we can praise God anytime and anywhere. Sometimes I don't think that we really see how blessed we really are that we can praise God in freedom. So many people in this world don't have the freedom that you have to praise God anytime and anywhere.
Give God "total praise" He is waiting on you this day!
