Do What The Devil Hates!

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? Who can declare all His praise? Blessed are those who keep justice, and he who does righteousness at all times!
Psalm 106:1-3

No matter your condition, the Psalmist proclaims, do what the devil hates, “praise the LORD!” He then tells us why we must praise Him; He is good. He is good in character; He is good in Word; and He is good in deed. Not only is He inherently good in Himself, He is good to us; He mercy endures to us forever. Through His mercy (or loving-kindness), God holds back the just punishment that we do deserve. Through His grace He gives us blessings that we don’t deserve.

Who is it that can even begin to know and speak of all that God does and has done? His mighty acts are so numerous and so mighty that a mere mortal such as I cannot possibly comprehend them. Who can declare His praise for all that He is? Yet, we can praise Him for what we do know and what we have received from Him and when we do, we will be blessed; because to praise Him is the right thing to do and we can do so at all times and everywhere we are. Do you want to be blessed? If so, then continue to bless the Lord with your praise and worship. Amen, amen and amen.

Faithfulness is always being there and always being true to one’s word.  Over and over again the Word proclaims that God is faithful.  Literally, He never changes so His Word to us never changes—it is always true.

Inheritance Incorruptible

In the midst of troubles and trials because the genuineness of your faith is tested. Peter wrote that even then your faith is more precious than gold even though it is sometimes tested by fire. To whom is your faith precious? Is it not precious to the one who has it and is it not precious to the One who gives it? Is it not above word?
