Welcome to the TOOLBOX Series! Most of us have a toolbox of some kind. When I was a child I used to help make repairs to the car. My grandfather always taught me how important it was to have the right tool for the job. Well, even as Christians we need the right tools to be ready for any situation, especially those times when we’ve had a rough day. The Father knew there would be days of stress and hard times. That’s why he gave us His Word. In the Word we can find every tool necessary to meet any situation.
Tool #1 – Praise and Worship
You don’t have to be in church to praise and worship your heavenly Father. You don’t even have to be able to sing. God loves the fact that you just “do it.” Psalm 100:4-5 says we should “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.”
When we praise the Father, all our stress and fear will fade away. It reminds us of the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. God will always look quickly to those of His children that take the time to sing to His glory. So turn on your praise and worship CD and revel in your merrymaking!
