Isaiah 25:1 O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You; I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.
When did you last let go and praise God like that? Perhaps we need more times when we just slacken off our self-control and acknowledge all the amazing things that God has done, is doing and will do. All the time we rationalise what we see and restrict ourselves to epithets like, "Yes, very nice" or "So cute!" we are diminishing God in our own eyes and others. To let go and shout out, "He did what? Whooo-hooo!" every now and again blesses Him, blesses us and is a critical part of our witness that believers aren't just boring, stuffy folk who suck lemons.
