Praise ME! Give thanks! Rejoice! Sing for joy! Dance before me! Choose to offer the sacrifice of praise!
A sacrifice is something that costs you, so offer up your praise on the days when you don’t feel like it. Praise me when you’re tempted to worry; praise me when you feel down. Choose to praise me and lift up a shout of victory! There is grace available to help you through these days if you’ll just partner with me and choose to praise. Don’t set your hopes on man or put your trust in human strength or wisdom; know that I am the ONE worthy of your trust! I am the one who carries all wisdom and who knows how to keep you in these times. Trust me and praise me for I am your deliverer and your strong tower! I am your refuge and safe place. I am the one who walks victorious and sees the end from the beginning.
Set your hope in me and praise me as the victorious one!
Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
