What are the reasons to praise God? He is gracious, kind and merciful to you. God blesses by causing His face to shine upon you. He looks out for your best interests. Walking in God's way, experiencing His deliverance and following His leadership always profits. Praising Him in every circumstance releases God's blessing so you will fear Him (Ps. 67:1-7).
Here are the ways you profit by following His leadership:
1. God scatters your enemies like smoke and melts them like wax before a fire (Ps. 68:1-4).
2. God leads the fatherless, widows, lonely and prisoners into prosperity like a loving father (Ps. 68:5-6).
3. God provides like when He brought rain during Israel's march through the wilderness (Ps. 68:7-10).
4. God defeats and scatters armies when women proclaim good news of Him (Ps. 68:11-14).
5. God releases you from captivity to sin and imparts spiritual gifts to help others gain freedom (Ps. 68:15-18).
6. God bears your burden and delivers you from death on a daily basis (Ps. 68:19-23).
7. God builds up your confidence as you rely on His victory over death and sin (Ps. 68:24-27).
8. God causes you to experience favor from those who were formerly enemies (Ps. 68:28-31).
9. God gives strength and power to His people because of His awesome majesty (Ps. 68:32-35).
Which of these profit(s) are most meaningful to you? Meditate on each one until you believe that God will impart them to you as you praise and follow His leadership.
