Standout Verse:

Psalm 98:1

“O sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things!”

Having a praise-filled, grateful heart toward the Lord is a huge key to breakthrough in our lives.  When we “sing to the Lord” our praises, powerful things happen. 

First (and most obvious) we get the opportunity to worship and acknowledge our Heavenly Father – His goodness, faithfulness, magnificent power, and strength!  Praising God and lifting up His name put’s things in right perspective – we are opening up our hearts, surrendering to Him; His presence, His power, His life in us!

Secondly, as we speak praise, we hear the sound of our own voice declaring the truth about who God is, what He has done in our lives, what He is doing now and what He will do in our lives in the future (a NEW SONG). 

As we speak about God’s faithfulness and hear His truth we REMEMBER.  When we REMEMBER His faithfulness and goodness – when His praises are on our lips, OUR FAITH RISES!  Our eyes are re-directed toward the Lord, our minds become “stayed on Him” once again, and peace fills our hearts.  SO GOOD!
