Though the darkness may suggest otherwise, it's in order to say “Good Morning” moments after 12:00am.
Praising at midnight (grateful when it doesn't really seem logical to be) is like rejoicing for a miracle before it is obvious.

25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
Acts 16:25-26

5 Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You.
6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
Psalm 67:5-7

Conception may be unnoticed but pregnancy can’t be hidden.
Some answers to prayers initiate a process even the recipient may not fully comprehend.
It's wise to prepare for harvest long before it arrives.

1 “Sing, O barren, you who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord.
2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.
3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited.

Isaiah 54:1-3

As runners cross the finish line with lifted hands, may reasons to rejoice abound this new month.

May the Deliberate Praises offered this twelfth month rise in acceptance as both gratitude for the blessings received and a memorial ensuring completion of the blessings in process.

God Bless You!



Excerpt: AM or PM, the twelfth hour represents TRANSITION…
Midnight is the transition time period from one day to the next: the moment when the date changes. 
However, we can determine what sort of day it should be…
As your praises go up to God in this twelfth month, may He CROWN all your efforts this year with a TURNAROUND that would make people say concerning you, "this can only be God".

Excerpt: Not everyone that started this year is alive this day…
If a living dog is better than a dead lion (Ecclesiastes 9:4), how much more a living lion that’s destined by design to be victorious (Proverbs 30:30)…?
Like a runner winning the race, the clock has all hands up at 12 o’clock.
In this 12th month, may you with hands raised, 
proclaim "VICTORY AT LAST!" ...

FINAL NOTE | December 2015
Excerpt: The twelve unique notes of the piano allows for twelve possible keys in music…
...regardless of position, just about any key can start a great song.
The last note of a song can sometimes give a clue to what key the song was in.
May this be a December full of JOYOUS CELEBRATIONS indeed.

Twelve Baskets Full | December 2016
Excerpt: Thanksgiving creates more opportunities to give thanks.
In counting our blessings, we are more than likely to lose count especially when we pay attention to those blessings we think don’t count.
What would have barely fed a few at first, became more than enough afterwards…
Challenges are somewhat indicators of blessings about to come or of those we’ve received.
The table is always closer than the enemies around...
In taking time to pick up the extras, twelve baskets were realized.
When we take time to think, even the seemingly insignificant becomes a genuine reason to thank God.


If you’re reading this and yet to accept Jesus Christ into your life as your Lord and personal Saviour, please pray the below:

Heavenly Father, I come to you today in the name of Jesus. I am a sinner and cannot help myself. I believe with all my heart, that Jesus died for me, that He was buried for me and that He rose triumphantly for me! Forgive me all my sins. Cleanse me with the precious blood of your son, Jesus. Deliver me from sin and Satan to serve you, the true and living God. Today, I accept Jesus as my Lord and personal Saviour. Thank you for saving me! I am born again. I believe that I’m now your true child, in Jesus mighty name.

If you prayed the above prayer sincerely, welcome to a life of victory as a child of the living God! You have been set apart by God.
