This week, I heard myself advising a friend to “praise through” a time of difficulty.
In another conversation, I remembered Psalm 8:2,
Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
If you are walking through a battle, remember that praise will build a stronghold for you against your enemies and silence their voices. It may seem like a sacrifice to stop indulging your situation, but turn your eyes away anyway, and praise the Lord. You won’t regret praising Him in this time. He’s worth it!
