Morning Thought: Praising God repels darkness. It’s like a dog-whistle to the devil. The sound of God’s praise pierces his ears, causing him to run for his life. Praise creates a barrier around you, keeping the evil one out and God’s presence in. Today, let God’s praise be continually in your mouth. “I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1, NASB).
