Power of Praise #3
Every message should moves us in a direction (Ecc 12:11); the Word of God "goads" us (2Co 13:1). Exodus generation began with praise then complained (Exo 16:2, Exo 16:6, Exo 16:8, Exo 16:12, Exo 16:24). Thy missed the rewards. What made Moses different than the Exodus generation (Psa 103:1-22)? Moses understood the ways of God while Israel only understood His acts (Psa 103:7). God rewards faithfulnes (1Sa 2:30). Paul arrested in Phillipi (Act 16:22-25) began to pray and praise God affecting many. We reap the reward of our praises if we do it in the beginning of the trial. After God delivers us we should praise Him, but the real reward comes from praise in the midst of it (Psa 42:1-11). Faith trusts in the dark. Faith is the evidence of things not seen.
