Praise him for his acts of power…
What have you seen God do in your life that only God can do? Speak to the Lord today the truth of your wonder at his power and majesty.
We acclaim his actions…
What does that mean? It means to brag on a God a little bit. Or as Paul would say, “If I boast, I boast in the Lord.” Thankfulness and praise are not all that different. We must be thankful at times to praise God. Here is the difference. Today, thank God for being the God that would do what you are thankful for.
Don’t just say thanks for the blessing. Tell God I praise you for being a God that would think to do such an act. Think of the characteristics or names of God that might describe these actions.
Here are some verses that give to God particular praiseful names that are connected to his actions
The Lord our Provider (Gen 22:14)
The Lord is my Banner (Ex. 17:15-16)
The Lord is my Peace (Judges 6:24)
God is my Salvation (Isaiah 12:2)
The Lord is my strength and my song (Ex. 15:2)
The Lord is a warrior (Ex 15:3)
Fill in this statement (maybe several times) You are the Lord my and I have seen that in you when you . I praise you for being my .
