Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. 1 Chronicles 16:8
Watching or listening to the news is a very common thing for people to do. They want to know what is happening in their city, state, nation and world. The television and internet is filled with hundreds of different sources for news.
Some news is focused on world news, while others are just local. Yet, even other news can be personal news. Facebook is filled with personal news about what is happening in a person’s life.
People get excited to talk about the good things that are happening in their life. They will also talk about the negative things that are occurring. Either way, people love to talk about what is happening and want to know what is happening in the lives of other people.
As David had the priests set up the ark of the covenant for worship, he told the people to being to give praise to God. In the process of giving that praise, they were also to tell the world what God has done for them. God had established them and made His presence among them.
Every believer has something to talk about. They have a news that is greater than any other news ever given. As soon as one becomes a believer, he has the message that he was a dead man, sentenced to die, but has been forgiven, set free and given eternal life. That is just the minimum of what God has done for the believer.
Each day believers can talk about how God has given them another day, the joy God has given them, the strength He has given, and all other provisions He has given. The world needs to know these things. They want to see what God has done and how it has changed a person.
God has done the same things for you and probably much more. Think about all the things God has done for you in your life. Now you must go and tell the world that news.
If the world can freely share all the bad news around the clock, you can share the best news ever around the clock. Someone out there is waiting to hear what you have to say about Jesus.
Take the time today to proclaim the name of Jesus and tell what He has done and is doing in your life with someone.
I pray today that you will know what God has done for you; that you will tell others what God has done; that you will not be ashamed of Jesus; and that many will believe in Jesus because of your story.
