“He Is Awesome, No Matter What”
Psalm 44:8 NLT
O God, we give glory to you all day long and constantly praise your name.
I know that I should give glory to God all day, every day, but there are days when I just don’t feel like doing that because life just gets discouraging and challenging. There are days when I know I should be doing more for Him, but I just want to do my own thing and bury myself in my own selfish desires. It’s often hard to know that you should be doing something you know is right, but you just don’t feel like doing it or just aren’t up to it. This is just how life sometimes is. It’s not that we don’t love God, but often we just don’t feel like praising Him because of what we are dealing with.
I have learned and continue to learn that no matter what I am dealing with or what I experience that is frustrating, it never changes how awesome and amazing God has been and continues to be. I need to remember that no matter how I am feeling or what I experience that discourages me, I should still praise Him because He is always working in my life and that He deserves all the glory.
No matter what we deal with in life, He still deserves praise. It’s often easy to sulk and mope because something or someone did put us in a bad mood, but we always have something to praise God for. No matter what, He always deserves praise. No matter what hardships or confusion life is throwing at me, there is always something I can praise God for.
This psalm is great to remind us that we need to be giving glory to God all day long and praise His name because He is always working in some way in our lives. He never stops working and never leaves our side.
I know there are a lot of people out there going through some seriously difficult life circumstances right now and they need a lot of encouragement. It’s easy for me to sulk and mope often times, but then I am reminded that there are always other people who are experiencing much more difficult things that I cannot comprehend. Many of these people are probably still praising God even in their storms! That gives me no reason to mope and sulk. I need reminding to praise God and keep my eyes completely focused on Him.
I hope that no matter what you are experiencing today, this week, this month or this year, you will pull through, lift your head up and know that God is still working in and through your life to do wonderful things. As hard as it might be to see and feel it, believe that He is and give praise to Him.
No matter what, nothing ever changes how awesome and amazing God is!
