Study: Shamach, put a smile on your face!

Praise the Lord, Hallelujah!

Did that shock you! I hope so. This blog is here for people who really want to praise and worship the Lord.

As Christians, praise is who we are, and what we do! Amen.

So, you have 6 seconds to get your praise on…

for the Father
for the Son
for the Holy Ghost
for Your Spirit
for Your Soul
for Your Body

In every area of your life, you should have praise. Do you think that I was just naming things, just to be naming things? No!!!

God is worthy to be praised today, and always!

Glory Hallelujah!

Smile today…Christ has made provision for your praise! That’s why in Him, we have abundant life – life full of blessings; until it overflows! Amen.

If you have that abundant life, please tell your face about it too! There are too many Christians walking around saying, “they are Christians and they are living in the year of more,” and their faces don’t express that! Better health, Contentment in their finances, and overall happiness.

Come on Saints, we are ambassadors for Christ! Act like it. Talk like it. Live like it, and Look like it. Amen!

Our face is always the last ones to find out, so please tell it to smile!

The unsaved should see the joy on your face and the peace in your life. Right!

So……if you are have problems, we must praise God in every situation.
No matter how bad it looks or feels in your situation, praise is the answer! God is our deliverer. He is always with us. Call on Him, and see for yourself. Maybe His timing isn’t ours, but He always takes care of business. We need not worry or look like we lost our best friend!

Let’s read Philippians 4:6-7:

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Now let’s read the Message Bible from these same verses for a little more clarity:

“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”

Now, this is how Christians should “displace worry,” amen. We pray, then praise!

How do I develop an automatic habit of praise when adversity comes? Don Gossett expresses this for every believer in Christ in his book called “Praise Avenue.” He states that every born-again Christian needs to get into the believing and praising habit by following these simple steps:
Read your Bible often
Try to get to into as much good Christian fellowship as possible
Begin to exercise your faith
Last, and perhaps most important, begin to praise God in all things
If you follow these guidelines, I’m sure you will have an automatic response to any problem or situation. Praise will automatically come forth, as a spring of life. Why? Because praise is comely for the upright (Psalm 33:1). Amen!

Praise Looks Good on You by Don Moen

That’s what the Lord, God is looking for (John 4:24). Give your life to the Lord, as a pleasing sacrifice to Him (Romans 12:1). Praise is a byproduct of our love for Him. The more you learn of God’s characteristics, and Jesus, our Lord and Savior. You will have no problem in offering up your life to Him (Hebrew 13:15). Amen.
The abundance life (John 10:10) that Jesus said is ours will be expressed in our actions and on our face! Praise is the key!

You need a little bit of help. I have a new Hebrew word for you to learn called Shamach.

Shamach means to rejoice, be glad, to have a joyful or cheerful countenance (put a smile on your face).

This word is found in the following scriptures:
“Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.” –Psalm 97:12

“Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.” – Psalm 105:3

“This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”- Psalm 118:24

In your study of this word, here are some other scripture references for you: Psalm 97:1; Psalm 97:8; Psalm 97:12;Psalm 104:15;Psalm 104:31; Psalm 104:34; Psalm 105:38; Psalm 106:5; Psalm 107:30; Psalm 107:42; Psalm 109:28; Psalm 119:74; Psalm 122:1; Psalm 149:2; Proverb 5:18; Proverb 10:1; Proverb 12:25; Proverb 13:9; Proverb 15:20;Proverb 15:30; Proverb 17:21; Proverb 23:15; Proverb 23:24; Proverb 23:25; Proverb 24:17; Proverb 27:9; Proverb 27:11; Proverb 29:2; and Proverb 29:3. This is only Psalms and Proverbs. There are many more scriptures for you to find. Smile when you looked them up too! Get glad.

Christ is still alive! Smile and Get Glad!

You need to Smile more, and tell others of God’s goodness. Amen! I have to admit. This is hard for me too, but I know that it’s not about me. Amen! It’s about others; Loving your neighbor as yourself. Others need to see the love of Christ, and the first thing they see is your face. Right! So smile more often, OK :).

Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
