Never Neglect Your Praise

September 2, 2013

When you look around, you can see God works from the rising of the sun until the going down of the same sun. When storms are raging, people will ask everyone to pray for them. They will make vows to God or try to “make a deal” with God. After God has turned everything around and delivered them, some people forget when God or people pulled them out of the valley.
My father had an old saying “a cow will need her tail more than one summer to fan flies”. Meaning: Don’t forget the people that helped you up when you was down. The same people you step on going up, is the same people you meet on your way back down. I may not say “thank you” to everyone for their help, prayers and assistance but I never forgot the people that had my back.
When God delivered the Israelites and brought them across the Red Sea, they too, soon forgot God. Instead of praising and worshipping God, they returned to their old ways by partying and building a god that could not speak nor hear. When God answers our prayers for a job, automobile, a home, when he supplies our needs or heals our bodies; we become too busy partying and don’t have time for God. God is a jealous God and we shall have no other god before Him. If we pray when the sun is shining, our voice won’t be a stranger when storms arrive.
As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. (Proverbs 26:11)
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. (Philippians 3:2)
Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. (2 Peter 1:12)
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. (Revelations 3:15-16)
O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? (Luke 9:41)
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. (2 Timothy 3:2)
