“Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

Habakkuk 3:18

Even though I wasn’t getting an increase in pay at work and the bills weren’t paid, I still praised him. Through the thick and thin we have to praise the Lord. There’s power in Praise. Praise him in the good and bad. Acts 16:22-34, Paul and Silas were in prison for preaching the Gospel.

 While they were in prison they prayed and praised God. God opened the doors of the prisons and Even though they were in prison and bound by shackles they still praised God. The guard began to praise God.

The guard and his family got saved.

Christianity not a bunch of do’s and don’ts, not a system of melancholy where you walk around depressed all the time. This makes for a dry, boring religion, God’s will for us is joy; John 15:11. Joy follows conversion; God wants us to be joyful.

Habakkuk has learned to trust God amid troubles, injustice suffering and loss. He would live by faith in God alone and with this kind of faith was joy in God despite the circumstances surrounding him. We too can rejoice in our trials, have confidence in God and live on the heights of His sovereignty.

Praising God in our trials turns burdens into blessings.
