Make no mistake about it, this February 2015 has come powered with intricate and remarkable blessing that deserve my Immediate Praise. Sometimes in life there are some blessings that are so huge you have to do a full speed jet take off of Immediate Praise! In 2014 our focus was on the series ‘My Alphabet of Praise’, but this year, fresh out of the starting block is Immediate Praise 2015. This idea was born from the overwhelming power of OTT (over-the-top) blessings that cause us to want to shower the earth with jet spray as we rise in praise to God.
When Jesus met the man with an unclean spirit in Mark 5 a conversation occured and then a miracle took place that left the suffering man – delivered from the demons, clothed, able to sit and in his right mind. The striking thing though is the quick acceleration of the people around. They literally fled the scene to announce what took place – not just the miracle got them speeding but the fact that their swine had drowned!!! (Mark 5:13-16 KJV)
By the time we get to Mark 5:17-20 (KJV) we sense the urgency in the man who was delivered! He knew a magnificent and extremely positive change had come over his life and body – and with Immediate Praise, He taxied up the runway anticipating his opportunity to release Immediate Praise! He not only has the urge to effect Immediate Praise to Jesus, this X-demon possessed man wants to stay in Jesus’ Presence – go where Jesus goes…His gratitude for Jesus’ help transcends anything around him and like a huge jet takes off with a vehement, immediate action to share his story in any community that Jesus chooses!
Similarly today, I thank God with Immediate Praise for:
1. Jesus’ sacrifice
2. A bed to lie on when I am feeling ill
3. The ability to breathe freely
4. Protection from centipede bites
5. Clothes to wear
6. A cold shower on a hot day
7. The sweetness of fresh morning air
8. A day at the beach
10. Cupcakes and Icecream
11. Safe travel by land, sea and air
12. Relief from pain
