Praising God Seven Times

Psalms 119 vs 164: “Seven times a day do I praise thee because of they righteous judgements” Today I want to praise the Lord seven times.

No. 1 Genesis 1 vs 1: “In the beginning God created the heavens and earth.” I praise Him today for my eyesight that I might behold His marvelous creation and with my eyes I can read the Word of God.

No. 2 Matthew 1 vs 21: “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.” I praise God for the gift of His Son and my Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ.

No. 3 1st Corinthians 1 vs 4 & 5: “I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; that in everything ye are enriched by Him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge.” I praise God today for the knowledge of His saving grace, knowing there is a way unto salvation and the way is Jesus Christ.

No. 4 Romans 12 vs 3: “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man a measure of faith.” I praise God for that measure of faith for with it I can believe unto salvation.

No. 5 Philippians 2 vs 8: “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” I praise God for the cross and all it means. The cross was the symbol of death, but once the Son of God was hung there it became the symbol of life everlasting. Thank you dear Jesus for my salvation.

No. 6 Hebrews 9 vs 22: “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.” I praise God for the blood. It’s with this blood that my salvation is bought.

No. 7 1st Corinthians 6 vs 19: “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not yor own.” I praise God today for the Holy Spirit that dwells in me. The Holy Ghost guides and directs my life. The more I yield to the Spirit the more I grow in faith and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

These are the seven praises I give to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Holy One of Israel, our heavenly Father and the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
