Abraham simply gave praise and glory to God and the Bible says that he was empowered; he grew stronger in faith as he worshipped.
Praise is the highest form of communion with God. I’m sure Abraham did not praised God because he felt good but it was more of an attitude of obedience; believing that God controls all things.
There were times I did not feel like giving praise to God but over the years, God has taught me that the very act of praise is an act of obedience as we yield our trust on God’s faithfulness to give us our breakthrough. At the same time, praise also releases God’s power to enable us to press on with a newly recharged faith.
Focusing on what we can see with our natural eyes will cause us to doubt and fear but if we imitate Abraham and give praise to God, HE will empower us to hope for our breakthrough and we will eventually see the fulfillment of HIS promises in our lives. Praise Him and be empowered.
Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God.
