Today you should read: Nehemiah 8:13-18

When was the last time that you took a period of time to simply remember what God has done in your life and give him praise for that? If we are honest, most of us probably neglect to do that. We get very caught up in praying for our personal needs and desires. It is absolutely good and okay for us to do that. But what we see in this passage is a large group of people coming together to celebrate and praise God for what He has done in their lives.

The Feast of Booths was a celebration where the Israelites spend a period of time living in temporary “homes” made out of sticks in remembrance of the time spent in the wilderness. They went to extreme lengths to highlight the fact that God protected them and brought them out of the wilderness.

When I read this passage, I can’t help but be convicted about how often I spend time just praising God and recognizing Him and all of the things He has done in my life. Every person who follows Jesus has an unbelievable amount of reasons to simply praise Him.

So what has God done in your life that He deserves praise for? We would love to hear what God is doing in your life. Please comment below and we will thank God with you.

  1. This being Memorial Day weekend, it seems fitting to praise God for the simple fact that I was born in America. A land where I can freely practice my faith without fear of meaningful persecution.

  2. First God has chosen me to be his child!!!! God has blessed with me with a family who loves me, spends time with me and listens to what I have to say! He has placed people in my life who encourage, speak truth, listen and inspire me to be the woman God has called me to be. He has chosen me to be the same in other people’s life and equipped me to do so! He has placed me in a church that leads, directs, and helps me to grow in Christ! He has allowed me to serve and go on mission trips. God continues to work in me!
