On Palm Sunday, Jesus rode into Jerusalem for what would be the last week of his natural life. He knew that difficult days were ahead. He knew that soon he would be facing the cross. And yet there he was, in the middle of an impromptu praise party. Even though those gathered there worshiped him not for who He was…but who they wanted Him to be…they worshiped Him nonetheless.
This is our invitation this week Soul City. We are in difficult days. And we have more difficult days ahead. But in the middle of these troubling times, we are invited to put ourselves into a posture of praise.
Will you let this mystery break your praise, or will you let your praise breakthrough this mystery?
God, I praise you. From the middle of this mystery, I praise you. I praise you for who you are and all that you have done. I praise the Father, who created me. I praise the Son, who made a way for me. And I praise the Spirit, who guides me and guards me. God, help me remain in a posture of praise through the highs and lows that come…all week long. Amen.
