"Praise The Lord, Oh My Soul" - Bethel Worship

Thank you for journeying with us in praise and worship throughout this devotional and our worship month. It’s been a great blessing hearing testimonies of God using everything poured out during this month for His great glory and grace.

“Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart,
I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s” - Psalm 103v1-5

I truly believe we exchange life's heavy loads and burdens for God's peace and power whenever our soul’s attention is on giving praise and honour to God. David reveals in Psalm 103 that as we praise the Lord we are reminded of all He is and all He has done and does for us.

Wherever the Lord leads you today, may your heart and soul respond with a simple “praise the Lord oh my soul, praise the Lord!”.

The Power of Praise Devotional - Saturday 4th November 2017

"You Waited" by Travis Greene

Throughout this worship month, there has been a growing gratitude in my heart. I am so thankful to be where I am and to be part of our church family, but even more, I'm just so full of gratitude once again to Jesus - for the cross. 

Many of you may know my testimony. There was a dark time in my life where I had my back turned to God. My deepest regret in life is that I didn't turn to God sooner, and my greatest gift is that God waited for me - He didn't turn away, not for one moment. The shame that I once knew as my best friend is now incinerated and there is now no mark remaining on me. The dark pain and hopelessness is defeated and He has given me life, joy and family. 

I am so thankful for our church family and to God I give my life, my heart, my everything with a renewed spirit of gratitude. 

Do you know what God has done for you? 

I'd encourage you today to thank God for everything He has led you through and also to strengthen your prayers and belief for those that have yet to know God around you. God's heart is that none should perish. May His loving kindness and patient endurance continually inspire hope and faith in us.
