When was the last time you praised God?
Was it in church?
Perhaps during your prayer time?
Maybe you were singing along to Christian radio?
Amy Jung from WastelandToGraceland.com is nearing the end of a series on one of my favorite classics, The Practice of the Presence of God, by Brother Lawrence.
In case you haven’t heard of him, Brother Lawrence was a 17th-century monk in Paris. He explained how he maintained an incredible level of intimacy with our Savior in his beautifully written 77-page book.
And isn’t that ultimately what we all want? Intimacy with Jesus?
The foundation of Brother Lawrence’s book is that since the Holy Spirit lives within us, we don’t have to wait for church a designated prayer time to abide with Jesus.
Praise and Adore Jesus, Anytime, Anywhere…
In the challenges and in the blessings. I want to adore Jesus. Yes, I want to petition him, but I also want to thank and praise and adore. As it glorifies Him, it fortifies us with the truths that strengthen us.Amy Jung
Amy’s post reminded me of two things: First, as I praise Him, He strengthens me. But more importantly, the time I spend with Jesus should be more about Him than me.Stop whatever you're doing, right now. Praise and adore Jesus for who He is, even if just for a moment. Click To Tweet
Read Amy’s post, and then please stop for a moment, and just praise Jesus for who He is.
