I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.

—Psalm 34:4-5

According to the Scriptures, worship is the most important thing we’re called to do as believers in Christ.

Yet, as A.W. Tozer once said, “Worship is the missing jewel of the church today.” And I believe this is so true. So many believers miss the joy of genuine worship. They just sort of go through the same old routine, week after week.

But one of the greatest reasons why we should make the worship of God a habit is because worship fortifies our faith.  When your faith needs a boost, look up! Praise, worship, singing spiritual songs, and expressing adoration to God all strengthen your faith and draw you nearer to Him. 

Remember what Psalm 22:3 tells us: God is “enthroned on the praises of Israel.” Wherever genuine praise is, so is God!

Today, in spite of what kind of storm you may be facing at home or work, I challenge you to find one thing for which to praise the Lord. 

I am confident that taking your focus off of your troubles and genuinely thanking God for what He has done in your life will strengthen your faith and brighten your outlook on life!

WHEN YOUR FAITH NEEDS A BOOST, LOOK UP IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP
