God is great! And is worthy to be praised! He is God all by Himself. He is for us, He is in us and He is with us. Praise and thanksgiving are essential to our lives in God as oxygen is to our breath. Our Lord wants us to praise Him all the time. He is always fighting for us. He sent Jesus to save us and to cause us to live victoriously in His name. For all of this, we must be confident of this; He is with us in every fiery trial and in stormy weather.
