Today’s post comes from one of my favourites songs by contemporary Christian band, Casting Crowns. The song’s theme is maintaining faith in God through difficult circumstances. Praising God is a powerful way to declare our faith especially when we go through difficult seasons. It is our way of saying “God, I trust You, and I know you’ve got me covered.”
When we go through tough times, we can hardly ever tell the specific outcomes or how soon things will change. But we can hold fast to our faith, declaring God’s praise and glory in spite of all we go through. We can lift up our voices in triumphant declaration that our God is greater than any other.
Through faith, we know that He makes all things work together for our good. Our praise is a declaration of our faith, a testimonial that we are unmoved by our trials – we remain fixated on God through it all. And so we declare with jubilant voices that our God is more than sufficient – we praise him right in the middle of the storm.
And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm
