Happy Easter, everyone! In honor of the day, I've decided to share two devotional thoughts I have encountered over the weekend.

Praise before Victory
On a day like today, the day that commemorates the victory of the resurrection, it is easy to praise the Lord. But praise is not rooted in the circumstances of the moment but in the nature and trustworthiness of God.

Mark 14:26: "Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives."

"Jesus was about to go to Gethsemane and to the cross, where Godís greatest victory would be accomplished. He led his disciples to sing a hymn. The disciples were about to fail Him, and Jesus was about to be cruelly executed, yet Jesus insisted that they praise God. Their praise looked beyond the cross to Godís ultimate victory."*

Our lives are to be offerings of praise and worship to God. In all circumstances. No matter whoís watching. No matter how we feel.

Because Godís love is constant. It never fails. Itís not about us. Itís all about Him.

Your Lord Precedes You

Mark 14:28 "But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee."

"God never sends you into a situation alone....He always precedes you in any situaion you encounter. God is never caught by surprise by your experience...He is prepared to meet every need....

"Not only does God go before you, but He also stands beside you and behind you....He is fully aware of what you are facing, and He is actively responding to your need."*

It is a comfort to know that no matter what the situation, God has been there, and He knows my need, and He will walk with me through any experience and on any path.
