Msg #1946 Amazing Praising
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
I preach a message that has been a great blessing to me, “It is Amazing What Praising Will Do!” God says that mankind is without excuse because when they “knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful.” Those are the first two steps away from God and I have been careful to glorify him with thanksgiving ever since I learned all six declining steps of Romans 1:21-23. Psalm 113 says, “Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.”... 150:6 “Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 103 instructs us to, “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name, ... and forget not all his benefits.” Praise him, bless him and include thanksgiving, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.... Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, ... abounding therein with thanksgiving” (Phil 4:6, Col 2:7).
Praising, blessing, and thanksgiving to God change brain chemistry and can cure several mental “diseases” in humans. Counseling treatments for depression, grief, anxiety, discouragement, discord, heart-ache, stress, even pain and addictions, will include consideration of outside and inside stimulus to the brain. The very thoughts that you run through your mind will generate enzymes, hormones and chemicals in response to your thinking. God says we need to renew our mind because out of our heart flow the issues of life. Wow, does the Bible address each of these physical issues of brain chemistry for our life? Yes it does. Pay attention when he says, “In everything give thanks.” Count your blessings name them one by one. Happy Thanksgiving.
