Day 5 of 5 • This day’s reading


How else can we respond to such unconditional love except with gratitude and praise— rejoicing right along with Him? He loves us so much that He sings over us!

When you find it difficult to connect with God, or feel as though you can’t hear His direction in your life, start praising Him for all He is and thanking Him for all He has done. Whether you sing it or say it, express your gratitude like the Word says, entering His “gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise” (Psalm 100:4). Magnify His name with prayers like the following:

“Father, You are wonderful. Thank You for being such a good God, who is so good to me. Thank You for being so faithful to me in every season. Thank You for never leaving me nor forsaking me. Thank You for always working all things for my good— even when I can’t see You at work.”
