Time to Praise God

In days of coronavirus, our lives are on hold. It seems like our world has come to a halt. You may not know what to do. When everything goes wrong, there is only one place to go. God is there for you.

It's time to praise God. Yes, that's right. Praise God in the midst of everything that has gone wrong. It's called the sacrifice of praise. "Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name" (Hebrews 13:15).

It may seem strange to you to praise God when everything goes wrong. Most of us reason that you only praise God when things are going your way. However, believers should praise God all the time, and that includes the bad times. Praise recognizes that God is good all the time, even in the bad times. Our life situations may change oh so fast, but our God changes not. His love, mercy and grace is constantly there for us.

See what God will do in days of coronavirus. Praise God through it all. Resolve to praise God when you understand, and when you don't. When everything goes wrong, it's time to praise God. Say to God, "Every day I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever" (Psalm 145:2). Even in days of coronavirus, praise be to God.
