Praising God

1 Corinthians 14:15-17 NIV

So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. Otherwise when you are praising God in the Spirit, how can someone else, who is now put in the position of an inquirer, say “Amen” to your thanksgiving, since they do not know what you are saying? You are giving thanks well enough, but no one else is edified. 

I am praising God for just being Himself! WOOT!

Psalm 44:20-21 NIV

If we had forgotten the name of our God
   or spread out our hands to a foreign god,
would not God have discovered it,
   since he knows the secrets of the heart? 

How thankful I am that God knows me inside and out. He knows and understands us better than we understand ourselves. He knows and understands what drives us; a craving to be like God. He created us in His image and we crave Him, to be like Him. When we make ourselves right with God through Jesus then our sins are forgiven, we are at peace because we can come to Him, through Jesus, and talk to Him like a friend. This is good news! This is awesome news! This is the best news I have ever heard!

Thank You Jesus for setting us free! Oh what a gift this is indeed. 

Isaiah 61:1-2 NIV
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
   because the LORD has anointed me
   to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
   to proclaim freedom for the captives
   and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor 


All believers in Jesus have the commission to spread the news about setting the captives free, by spreading the gospel; the good new of Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 42:6-8 NIV
“I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
   I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
   to be a covenant for the people
   and a light for the Gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind,
   to free captives from prison
   and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
 “I am the LORD; that is my name!
   I will not yield my glory to another
   or my praise to idols.

  1. Hi Sara,
    The Spirit of the Lord empowers us to do amazing things for His Kingdom.


  2. Hi Child of God,
    Yes!! I agree with you.
    God knows the secret of our hearts. We can't hide from Him, for He knows everything before we know it. We pray with the spirit and with understanding what we are saying. Faith moves mountains. Thank you, sweet Child of God for sharing your wisdom and your true love for God with the world!! Your blog is full of inspiration, and with great knowledge of the Scriptures. I hope and pray that you receive this post. I have been undergoing troubles posting comments and replies with my Blogger in the Internet. I hope this message goes through. I shall visit you again tomorrow, and I'll see if you post it there. You are an amazing lady, Child of God.
    Thank you, sweetheart for visiting my blogs and writing your heartfelt comments!! I truly appreciate your kindness.
    The Lord be with you always.
    Poet Starry Dawn.

  5. hi child of God:)

    just to let you know i am reading the blogs i follow daily but i haven't left any comments. i'm going to explain my absence in my next post. in the past i've always notified my readers when i needed to "step back" but this time i didn't. but i didn't know it was going to be this long! am writing but not posting. although i need to spend a little more time with our Father, i'm pretty close to returning. need just a few more days.

    Praise Adonai!!!

  6. I believe that the internet is being redeemed by God by empowering blog authors like you, and many others to be a mouthpiece for His kingdom!

    Indeed, let the good news be proclaimed all over the world through the internet!

    Let the Truth be known...

    Let blind eyes be opened...

    Let captives in prisons be set free!

    Your blog is such a blessing!


  7. So beautiful, I agree with all you have written..God is good. Much love Crystal Mary. xx

  8. Hi Starry Dawn,
    Got your post! I guess blogger is still having a few issues. I haven't had any problems so far but my daughter seems to have issues. I'm sure they will have it fixed soon.

    I am glad you like my blog, that makes me so happy! I like your blog too! I love all your poems, I really appreciate someone who can write especially since I struggle with this so much!

    Hi Ken,
    I so agree, to Him be the glory forever! Sometimes I just become overwhelmed with praise for God that I must shout it out. Very unusual for me as I am an introvert! :) Just goes to show you what the Spirit of God will do with a person.

    Hi Sojourner,
    You are one sweet, kind hearted person, caring so much about how your readers feel. Thank you for letting me know about your break. I believe we all need a break every now and then, it is healthy for us. I hope you have a wonderful time resting in the presence of our Lord. I have been praying for you wife while she is in China. I hope she has a wonderful stay with her family.

    Hi Lidj,
    Redeemed by authors like US! :) Your blog is amazing and I love how you write. Well, almost everybody's blog that I follow gives glory to God, such a wonderful place to gather, fellowship, and praise His name.

    Amen, Truth be known,
    Amen, blind eyes open,
    Amen, captive set free!!

    Hi Crystal Mary,
    It is so good to stand in agreement with each other. I believe this agreement ushers our prayers into the Kingdom and knocks down the work of the evil one.

    Blessings to you all, thank you for leaving such sweet comments.


  9. Hi Child of GOD -

    This is a rich potent piece indeed.
    Isaiah is one of my favorite books of the Bible and that scripture that says, "I am the Lord: that is my name:..." It gives me Holy Ghost thrills!

    Thank you,dear lady.

    If you are so inclined, please visit my blog,LIONS SHARE MAJESTY and read my two most recent posts, WINNING STRATEGIES" and "MORE THAN CONQUERORS WHO ARE WELL ABLE TO OVERCOME."

    Thank you, Child of God, for your consideration.

  10. Hi Sandra,
    I too love Isaiah! Holy Ghost this!! :)

    I sure will come by your blog as soon as morning chores are done. Cows are a bit hungry and I am running late.


  11. Hi, popped in from Crystal Mary's blog.
    God is very, very good. What could we possibly do without him? God bless you child of God, Geoff.

  12. Hello Geoff,
    Funny, I just saw the comment you left on Crystal Mary's friends blog, Val, and thought I would stop by your blog and say hi but you beat me to it. ;P

    Our God is so good and I am so thankful I know Him.


  13. Well said! God knows us better than we know true!


  14. Hi Summer,
    It is good that someone knows us so well, better than we know ourselves.
