OVERVIEW

Each devotion found in this collection succinctly delivers the intended message for its particular title and the related Bible verses. Not one devotion strays from Charles Billingsley’s theme of engaging in a whole-person worship. Besides being both clear and concise in its wording, Billingsley’s writing style is cordial and inviting while keeping an easy-to-comprehend message. The devotions are tied to verses from the New Living Translation Bible and any other verses mentioned are cited with appropriate translation. The concept of the book is to understand how praying, singing, testifying, witnessing, glorifying, and worshiping can all be elements of God-honoring praise.  The Bible verses justify our need to praise God for his goodness, long-suffering, protection, and love. Anyone who wishes to begin or conclude a day by offering praises to God will find this book a proper guide for that exercise.
