It's Amazing What Praising Can Do (2 of 6)
Dr. Stan Coffey
Today we are continuing the theme we began last week called ''Baskets of Blessings.'' The theme comes from what God said to the children of Israel. The key verse for this whole theme is in Deuteronomy 26. It said, 'Take some of the first fruits of all that your produce. Put them in a basket. Put the basket before the Lord you God and bow down before him.'' That's what we as a church family and those of you who are friends of our church are going to do during all this Thanksgiving season.
Beginning tomorrow I want you to take your basket of blessings, take out the little notebook that you see there and it will tell you exactly what to do.

So, if you have not received one of these baskets please feel free after the service to come and pick one up. It will have this little notebook of blessings in it.
Then, each day you turn it over and put a blessing on the other side that you family received in 1995 and praise the Lord for that. We're just entering into a time of praise to God.
In connection with that I want to speak today from Psalm 63 and verse 1. I'm going to speak today about ''It's Amazing What Praising Can Do.'' I'm so excited to see what God is going to do in the life of our church, in the life of our families, in our own hearts as we enter into a time of intense praise and thanksgiving to God. It's going to be exciting.
The Psalmist said, ''O God, you are my God. Earnestly I seek you. My soul thirsts for you. My body longs for you in ...
