"Praise In The Imperfect - Part 2"

"From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised."  Psalm 113:3

Yesterday we talked about the fact that we don't always wake up each morning to a "perfect" life or "perfect" conditions.  We also talked about the fact that each new day is like having a new door opened to us and that we should enter into that door with praise-- in spite of what is going wrong. 

This morning I want to talk about ending your day with praise.  Like the verse above says-- "from the rising of the sun to the going down of it, the Lord's name is to be praised."  Perhaps everything went wrong during the day.  Maybe things didn't go according to plan, or turn out like you had hoped or maybe even bad things happened to you.  Maybe your day was anything but "perfect".  Does it change the fact that He is still worthy of your praise and you should give it to Him for helping you make it through an "imperfect day"?  No, it doesn't.

If we would make a step of faith and bring a sacrifice of praise to the Lord in spite of all the imperfect things, people and situations that touched our lives, the imperfect would not crush us, defeat us, cripple us, or overcome us.  Our praise would defeat the effects that those imperfect things have on us.

So, praise Him in the morning even if conditions aren't perfect.  Praise Him at night even if conditions weren't perfect.

Have a great day.  Life is not perfect, but we should praise God morning, noon and night anyway because He is perfect.
