April 17

Daily praise. Outside my window within view, I have a staghorn fern. I love gardening, but had never desired to have one, until I found one that had been left unattended for years on the ground in the yard of a house we purchased. I cleaned it up, and brought it home. I added chains, and bought an old chair hanger, and re-purposed it for my fern. I’ve had it for less than a year, and it is growing beautifully. A few weeks ago, I noticed something interesting; its leaves look like hands reaching up in praise. So every morning since then, I take notice of it praising the Lord. It reminds me that if I don’t praise him, my plant, without a voice, will. We were made to praise him, so don’t let a day go by without showing admiration to the One who breathes life into you. When Jesus said the rocks will praise him, he wasn’t kidding. Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord! My daily routine begins with repeating verses from John’s vision in Revelation, and I will often repeat them throughout the day. Memorize a few verses of praise, so you're always equipped to honor him who sits on the throne.

saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Revelation 5:12-13
