Day 9

Psalm 92:1-2 - It is good to praise Adonai and to make music to Your Name, Elyon, to declare Your love in the morning and Your faithfulness at night.

Heart Thoughts

When was the last time you woke and praised God before you pondered your day or your problems? When was the last time you ended your night celebrating God’s faithfulness instead of complaining about the day?

Sometimes the reason we don’t see God do great things is because we don’t praise Him for His love or faithfulness. It is easy to let our day speak to us rather than to declare God’s praise over our day. It is almost natural to let our mountains speak to us rather than to declare God’s praise to our mountains. When you start to praise El Elyon for His love and faithfulness you will no longer be a victim but a victory, no longer a complainer but a praiser, no longer walking the shadow of your mountains but praising God for moving the mountains out of your way.

Put the Name El Elyon on your lips. David says, “Elyon” I sing about your love and faithfulness. Why? To encounter Elyon is not to just encounter raw power or authority but to encounter the person of God Most High. When He acts towards you it is because He loves you and is faithful to you even while you sleep through the night. He loves to move your problems out of the way, loves to see you walk in victory, loves to get glory through you.

All through the Scripture, we see when people praise God rather than professing the problem those people see the power of El Elyon in the land of the living. It says of King Jehoshaphat, “Early in the morning he arose...stood and said, ‘Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in Adonai your God...Trust in His prophets and you will succeed.’ He appointed singers to Adonai praising the splendor of His holiness, as they went out before the army saying, ‘Praise Adonai, for His mercy endures forever.’” As they began singing and praising their enemies were defeated (2 Chronicles 20:20-22).

Follow Jehoshaphat’s example and start the day with praise and end it the same way. Dare to praise Elyon, dare to believe Elyon, and see His mighty hand move on your behalf!

Bracha

May El Elyon give you a heart to praise. Today, may our lips call out on the Name of El Elyon early and late and may you discover the mighty hand of El Elyon moving on your behalf today.
