The Power of Praise

"I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.  I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are discouraged take heart." Ps. 34:1-2
  Continual praise is a powerful weapon to keep our perspective regardless of what is happening to us.  Let's be real, life has it's ups and downs. There are high, low and in between seasons.  Psalms 34:1 is a key to maintaining a victorious life in an up and down world. Why? Because our circumstances are speaking to us and we must learn to speak back.  Someone once said prayer is telling God about our problems but praise is telling problems about our God.  Praise turns the volume down on fear, discouragement and confusion.  As we boast in the Lord, praising him for who he is and what he does, we find we are the "discouraged" who are encouraged to "take heart."
