One of the best things I ever learned as a young mom was the importance of praising God, even when times were tough. The Bible says that God inhabits, or is enthroned on, the praise of His people (Psalm 22:3). So when we praise God, He is near us. I love how Dr. Caroline Leaf 1 says, “When we praise God, He is by our side.”
When my kids were little, I started praising God before I even got up out of bed. I felt like I needed that time to focus on the Lord before I saw any of my little people for the day. Now, I do this exercise at the beginning of my quiet time, right after I thank Him for three to five things He has done for me.
I wanted to share the way I praise God with you in case you need an easy way to remember great character traits about our God. It’s so easy to memorize your list and makes it an effortless part of your devotion time. You can do all of the ‘A, B, C’s’ at once or only do a couple of letters at a time. It’s totally up to you! As we say with everything in the Help Club, “You do you!” If you want to come up with new praises for God, do it! If you need an easy list to springboard from, you can do that too! Here’s mine:
A – Jesus you are Amazing!
B – You are Beautiful!
C – Thank you for how you Care for me.
D – You are so Devoted to me.
E – Your love is Everlasting.
F – You are my very best Friend!
G – Thank you for your Grace.
H – You are my Helper.
I – You are Infinitely more than I could ever imagine!
J – Your love brings me great Joy!
K – You are the Father of Knowledge.
