5 Verses to Memorize and Recite – Praise

When You Need to Praise God More Through to Victory

by J.M. Troppello

Praise is an important part of a Christian’s life. Or at least it should be. Praise can help you get through difficult situations in your life.

Praising God through the good and bad times can help you find your way through to victory. The following five verses about praise can help you to focus on God when you need to change your mindset—especially when you’re going through hard times.

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:24, NKJV)

Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. (Psalm 106:1, NKJV)

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. (Hebrews 13:15, NKJV)

Let them give glory to the Lord, And declare His praise in the coastlands. (Isaiah 42:12, NKJV)

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! (Psalm 103:1, NKJV)

Of course, I totally understand that it can be so difficult to praise God when you’re going through a hard time. Yet, it’s so important to praise Him. Those are the times when you need to turn your attention on God and not the difficult circumstances, you’re in.

Recently, I felt God compelling me to take a break from work and spend time praising Him. That request was difficult. I was so mired in the mud of the trying circumstances my husband and I were going through.

It took me an entire week to get my focus back on God and not on my circumstances. Sure, I’d still read the Bible each day. Yet my prayer and worship time had severely suffered that week.

God is good. He helped me through those times and through so many other times in my life.

If you’re struggling and need to refocus on God, take a moment to pray. Get alone somewhere and sing worship songs. Listen to worship music on your playlist on Spotify or Pandora.

Take it from me, praising God can make all the difference in your walk with the Lord.
