THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

REVIVE US AGAIN!!

1. We praise Thee, O God!
For the Son of Thy love,
For Jesus who died,
And is now gone above.

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
Hallelujah! Amen;
Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
Revive us again.

2. We praise Thee, O God!
For Thy Spirit of light,
Who has shown us our Savior,
And scattered our night.
Chorus:

3. All glory and praise
To the Lamb that was slain,
Who has borne all our sins,
And has cleansed ev'ry stain.
Chorus:

4. Revive us again;
Fill each heart with Thy love;
May each soul be rekindled
With fire from above.

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
Hallelujah! Amen;
Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
Revive us again.

God is very PERSONAL with His people!
He is “even our OWN God!”

The Bible teaches us that God actually "inhabitest” the praises of His people. (Ps. 22:3)

So, “Let the people PRAISE thee, O God!!”

Praise Him for His LOVE, which sent Jesus to pay for our sins in His own blood! (Heb. 9:12)
Praise Him for His MERCY, which provides us the privilege of forgiveness and acceptance! (Eph. 1:6)
Praise Him for His GRACE, which is poured like water from a pitcher upon us each day! (John 1:16)
Praise Him for His CLOSENESS, because we can call upon Him at ANY time! (Is. 55:6)
Praise Him for His WORD, which teaches us “the mind of Christ!” (1Cor. 2:16)

Yes!
”Let the people PRAISE thee, O God!!”

THEN, “God shall BLESS us!”

It is indeed strange how many Christians fail to maintain a daily personal relationship with “our OWN God!”
We, so often, try to handle our own problems without seeking His personal guidance.
We, too often, face crises without calling upon His closeness and help.
And, too many times, we take our burdens to Him, but then take them right back!

If we Christians would have the world “fear” (honor, give reverence to) “our OWN God,” then
we must PRAISE HIM in all things!!

Make a conscious effort today.
FOCUS upon PRAISING God in EVERYTHING you do!

Praise Him, and see how you are REVIVED!!

Love ya!
