Heart Praise

Scripture

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.”  ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭28:7‬ ‭ESV‬

Observation

The Lord protects and my heart finds refuge in him. Praise rises up within my being and I give thanks to the Lord. 

Application

The Lord provides strength and a shield against those things that can steer our hearts toward restlessness and fear. When anxiety rises the Word of God speaks into our heart words of peace and comfort. 

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.  Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:4-7

The Lord turns our restlessness to rest and praise and worship rises up out of the comfort and guidance the Lord provides. 

Prayer

Lord, I praise you and exalt you for my heart finds rest in your strength.  Today may praise rise up from the depths of my life and be ever present on my lips.
