Shout It Out-Janice McGatha, October 2021

I want to honor this Jesus loving, Bible believing woman of God. Let me tell you about the Janice (JB) I know, as a follower and lover of Jesus. She is full of praise for Jesus Christ. Daily, on FB she praises His Holy Name and encourages others to do so as well. She doesn’t just hold out her hand for blessings, but is thankful for everything God has already done and who He is. How Jesus must smile upon her. It’s easy to praise God when you are on the mountain top. Not so much when your brother dies or sickness comes, or a loved one is in trouble. But Janice still praises Jesus during hard times.

She brings the sacrifice of praise which comes from a humbled grateful heart, acknowledging that God is still great and He can be trusted and depended upon. It comes from a close relationship with Jesus and a spirit that has chosen to praise and honor God, regardless of the pain life has caused. She has a heart of worship in the good and in the bad.

God hears her praise and it places her in a position for God’s blessings to be poured out upon her as well as His Presence. He manifests authority and leads us forward when we praise Him.

Hebrews 13:15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.

Satan hates us praising God. Keep on praising Him in the valley until you see the victory and make it back to the mountaintop. Choosing to praise defeats the enemy, increases our faith to a new level. God inhabits our praise. He is close, very close when we praise Him.

I’m so proud of you JB, sister in Christ. May all you do in the Name of Jesus be blessed and highly favored in Jesus Name. Amen. We are going to have so much fun in heaven with Jesus!!!  Praise His Holy Name.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
