Take a deep breath. Exhale slowly. Relax your shoulders. Straighten your back so you can relieve some of the stress and tension. Now take another deep breath and release it slowly. Close your eyes and relax your body using your mind. Raise your arms up as high as you can and feel the stretch. Keep your eyes closed. You may be upset, disappointed, feel like breaking down, or perhaps just had a bad experience in your day but I want you to repeat these words, “Lord, nothing else matters at this moment but You and I give You the glory. I praise Your Name because You’re worthy to be praised and no matter how things seem at this very moment — YOU are sovereign and have complete control. My flesh wants to react but I choose to give this moment ALL to You! I’m not asking for anything; I just want to acknowledge You. In Jesus Name. Amen!”
There is something about honoring God in the midst of whatever may be troubling our hearts. When we do this it immediately gets the attention of God and we’re at the threshold of worshipping the God who is in control of our very being. There are many, MANY times I just feel like slumping over and throwing up my hands but my heart says, “You’ve come too far to turn back now!” There is something about being at the altar of the feet of Jesus where absolutely NOTHING else matters. NOTHING! Although our feelings may get pricked at times but it’s NEVER worth our joy and peace. So instead of pulling the trigger that May cause you to desire that unhealthy, un-nourished, artery clogging food – release the trigger in the Name of Jesus and walk in victory…Pat yourself on the shoulder and smile. YOU DID IT!
