When our favorite team wins...when our favorite artist drops a new project...when our favorite author publishes a book...when our favorite actor stars in a movie...when we visit our favorite restaurant, WE CAN’T HELP BUT TALK ABOUT IT! So why when it comes to the things of God, we cower and quiet? The Word instructs us to, “Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim His greatness. Let the whole world know what He has done. Sing to Him; yes, sing His praises. Tell everyone about His wonderful deeds.” (Psalms 105:1-2)
This means that in the workplace, at our schools, in the grocery store, at the mall, etc. we should be rejoicing in Him and proclaiming His goodness. His praises aren’t just required at church. He is to be praised and glorified in all the earth. As we lift Him up, He draws more men, women and children into Himself. (John 12:32) We should be so excited about Christ that we CAN’T KEEP QUIET about Him!🙌🏽 It should be like fire shut up in our bones that we just can’t contain!!
“But if I say I’ll never mention the Lord or speak in His Name, His Word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!”
Proclaiming Christ doesn’t have to always involve preaching a sermon and praising Him doesn’t have to always look like shouting. It can be as practical as giving Him credit for your accomplishments at work when others try to praise you for them...As simple as thanking Him out loud for success in school.
I CAN’T KEEP QUIET. The Lord doesn’t keep quiet about me when interceding for me at the foot of the Father.(Romans 8:34) Never will I let a rock cry out for in my place. (Luke 19:40) He’s been too good to me.
