One of the primary reasons that people spend so little time praising the Lord is because of a very inadequate understanding of who He is. In this message, Dr. Stanley explains that when we begin to understand how Holy, majestic and mighty God is, we begin to understand how to praise and worship Him.

Many people try to escape their anxious feelings with medications, drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, or anything that brings relief. But none of these methods are truly effective. The ultimate solution only comes from God, and He’s freely provided it to every one of His children.

Thanksgiving is a practice that we cannot afford to discard when the going gets tough. With gratitude comes a whole host of benefits—greater awareness of  His presence, increased trust, joy, decreased anxiety—that energize us when we feel beaten down. Combatting adversity is draining. Refuel with thanksgiving.

We cannot choose to avoid adversity, but we can choose how we will respond. Through adversity, God is able to accomplish so much in our lives, if we will only trust Him and seek His purposes. God promises to be with us in the midst of adversity. Will you engage or run away?

Like any good father, God wants to see His children grow. And His primary way of growing our faith is through adversity—there simply is no more effective way of deepening our relationship with Him. But we must choose to view adversity as an opportunity, rather than as an obstacle. When we do that, we grow in our Christlikeness. Adversity is a given. Growth is optional.

Adversity is a universal human experience—and not one that we particularly enjoy. When uncertainty, pain, and trials come our way, we usually react with blame, denial, or self-pity. Those responses, while normal, aren't especially helpful. Since we are guaranteed adversity in this life, we need to know the best way to respond. Yes, adversity can be prolonged and painful. But, when we seek the Lord in the midst of it, He uses it for our ultimate good.

When we think of praise, times of joy, happiness, and good fortune probably come to mind. What about when those seasons of difficulty, hardship, and persecution come, though? Is praise still appropriate then? According to Dr. Stanley, you and I will never understand the real power of praise until we go through tough times.

When we are facing a crucial decision and are seeking the Lord's direction and guidance, we want to be sure we are hearing from Him correctly. Peace will follow if we've heard the voice of God and commit to obey Him. These things are not learned overnight. They take time and a heart that is constantly seeking the Lord. Stay faithful—the Lord will honor those who listen and obey Him.

About Dr. Charles Stanley

Dr. Charles Stanley

September 25, 1932 – April 18, 2023

Dr. Charles F. Stanley was the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Atlanta for more than fifty years. He was also the founder of In Touch Ministries and a New York Times best-selling author, who wrote more than seventy books encouraging people to seek Jesus as their Savior and know Him as their wise and loving Lord. 

Known to audiences around the world through his wide-reaching TV and radio broadcasts, Stanley modeled his 65 years of ministry after the apostle Paul’s message in Acts 20:24: “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.”
