21 Days of Powerful Breakthroughs: Day 19

Read John 12:43

Receiving the praises of God

Read John 12:43. It speaks of receiving the praise of God and not of man. Most often as we go about our days, we may seek several likes on our social media page, hope to be retweeted on our status bar, or simply wishing friends and family would validate who we are. What is even worse, we also seek the praises from those we do not like, hoping for a “good job,” “you are the best” or “I appreciate you,” but instead, we should seek the praises of our Heavenly Father.

Follow His will

So, how do we get the praises from God up above? Begin by seeking and implementing God’s will for our lives. Love doing what is right and follow His commandments. Let go of any idols you have placed above God. Knowing if we follow His will, we will not only have a fulfilled life, but we will obtain the praises of the Heavenly Father.

He has started a good work

“For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God had ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 KJV). God expects us to walk into the good work He has already implemented in our lives. We have been created and designed for God’s use.

Begin today listening to your heart, asking God how your life can be used to give Him praise. Cease to live a self-fulfilled life, and let God begin to use you for His purpose. Then you will begin to receive the praises of God.

Reflection: Ask God today to reveal to you how you can begin to receive His praises in your life.
