Today's Daily Devotional

Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness. Psalm 150:1-2

04/08/09 I was just working on my latest memory verse, James 2:13 which says, “Mercy triumphs over judgment.” I believe there’s a correlation between that verse and our devotion verse. Think of it this way, praise triumphs over complaining. Not only is that so true…if the meandering Israelites had done more praising and less complaining, those who knew the slavery of Egypt may have seen the promised land! Instead, they grumbled and didn’t trust God and were punished so that all but two of them would die in the desert as they wandered past the same sand dune for the next 40 years! What did they have to praise God for? Deliverance from slavery… Manna… Clothes and shoes that didn’t wear out… God’s guidance… The ability to see His presence in the pillar of cloud and fire… Coolness from the cloud by day and warmth from the fire by night… What do you have to praise God for?
