Created for Praise

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

We pray that each and everyone of you had a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones and that praises went up to the Throne Room giving GOD the honor that is due Him! Our Creator, “maker of heaven and earth,” made us in His image with the main purpose of glorifying Himself! 

When YESHUA instructed the disciples how to pray (Matthew 6:9), He began His prayer with adoration! We do need to spend more time praising the LORD than just going to Him with our requests. 

The Word of God warns us to always remember GOD’S benefits so we will humbly go before Him and give Him the honor and glory for who He is, “The Great I Am”! 

Praise appropriately humbles us; as it is a reminder of GOD’S greatness and our dependence upon Him! And at the same time, exalting Him strengthens our sense of assurance, therefore increasing our faith! 

As we focus at the cross, we find new strength!

Psalm 150:6
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Take a moment to think about the LORD’S attributes, goodness, and His work in your life. 

What can you praise Him for today? 

For a follower of YESHUA, everyday should be a day of thanksgiving!


All our love,

Give Thanks

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Thanksgiving is a great time to express gratitude toward our heavenly FATHER, but it shouldn’t be the only time of the year we do so!   If we’re honest about it, most of us will discover that our prayers are often more self-centered than we’d like to admit!

It’s easy to take for granted and even forget the many blessings GOD has given us and instead focus on the things we want from Him.  

But giving real thanks to our LORD is one of the most important priorities in the believer’s life.  Giving thanks to our heavenly FATHER honors Him, focuses our attention on Him instead of the world’s demands and refreshes our relationship with Him while rejuvenating our spirits!

Psalm 92:1-2
It is good to give thanks to the Lord and sing praises to your name , O Most High; to declare your loving kindness in the morning and your faithfulness every night.

Giving thanks is something we can do any time and any place! 

Why not take a few moments right now to reflect on the greatness of GOD and the gifts He has given us. Let’s begin every day with a song of praise with gratitude in our hearts.

We pray for abundant blessing to be upon you and your loved ones this Thanksgiving celebration! Yes! “PTL!”

 In Yeshua’s Name. Amen.


Love & Blessings,
