What a Mighty God We Serve!!! Praise be to God! Today at the Temple, we celebrate Solomon Temple’s 65 Year Anniversary. We give thanks for the support of the membership through the years, our current Pastor Victor S. Brice, and acknowledge the Temple’s past pastors. We pray that our latter days will continue to shine bright, increase and be greater than our former days. We pray that Solomon Temple continues to be a beacon for the Greater Pittsburg community.
For God’s Glory we will do anything because we want to be where He is. The Praise team led us in a Spirit filled worship and praise service and we were regaled with a dynamic dance presented by Solomon Temple’s WOW Praise Dancers. The Men’s Choir blessed our souls with their rendition of Oh, Lord I Need You to Hold My Hand. The Holy Spirit showed up we all had a glorious time in the Lord! You could say we went “Prazy”! Which was the theme of our sermon, brought to us by Reverend Joseph Bryant,, Jr. of Calvary Hill Community Church of San Francisco, California.
Instead of going “crazy” when life gets you down, instead of worrying and fretting over our trials and tribulations, we need to remember to Praise God. Praise God when things are good and praise God when things are not so good. For we know that when praises go up, blessings come down. We should set our minds on Praise Mode. Be “Prazy” for the Lord!
The Reverend reminds us to rejoice in the Lord. We are to be anxious about nothing, but to trust in God and praise Him at all times. The path to emotional and mental health begins when we decide to have an attitude of gratitude. No “stinking thinking.” Dear hearts we need to stay away from “stinking thinking” – negative thinking – and stinking thinking folk. If you dwell in a stinking thinking environment, you can become immune to the stink.” It will drain you and keep you down. Stinking thinking will sink you into turmoil, despair and no hope. It can make you crazy. It will prevent you from rejoicing, which can block your blessings.
There is nothing or no one in our lives that should stop our praise. Praise God through everything, even through adversity. Adversity gives us saints a testimony because we KNOW God will bring us through. We don’t have to wait until the storm is over. We can shout now!!! Hallelujah. GO PRAZY! Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving, and enter His court with Praise! Rejoice in the Lord always. I’ve got a feeling everything’s going to be alright.
Three saints were led by the Holy Spirit to partner with Solomon Temple. Praise be to God!!! If you are in the Pittsburg, California, please join us on Sunday mornings. You will surely be blessed. If you are not in the area, I invite you to join us on our livestream. God bless.
