PRAISING GOD
Just praising GOD …. Allowing a free flow of praise…
CDC Ministry Fellowship
HOLY CONVOCATION
Isaiah 61:3
To grant [consolation and joy] to those
who mourn in Zion—to give them an
ornament (a garland or diadem) of
beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy
instead of mourning, the garment
[expressive] of praise instead of a heavy,
burdened, and failing spirit—that they
may be called oaks of righteousness
[lofty, strong, and magnificent,
distinguished for uprightness, justice, and
right standing with God], the planting of
the Lord, that He may be glorified. Amplified
Bible (AMP)

Deuteronomy 32:2
My message shall drop as the rain, my
speech shall distil as the dew, as the light
rain upon the tender grass, and as the
showers upon the herb.
Isaiah 45:8
Let fall in showers, you heavens, from
above, and let the skies rain down
righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heavenborn possibilities that have their
foundation in the holy being of God]; let
the earth open, and let them [skies and
earth] sprout forth salvation, and let
righteousness germinate and spring up
[as plants do] together; I the Lord have
created it.
