Habit No. 3: Strong Christians Anchor Their Heart Through Praise
“I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” –Psalm 34:1, NKJV
Did you know praise is a language? It’s a language of faith and a language of receiving. A strong Christian is fluent in praise. That’s why we’re called to bless the Lord at all times (Psalm 34:1) because no matter what is happening in our lives, we have countless reasons to thank Him for what He has done, what He is doing, and what we know He will do.
If praise is continually in your mouth, does that mean only when it’s good? No. That’s easy. Praise is an act of faith. If you believe you receive what you’ve asked—you’ll thank God for it—even if it hasn’t manifested. Praise says, “I know it’s coming.”
Strong Christians know there is a connection between praise and strength. They know a spirit of praise puts you in position and produces spiritual strength.
