Desert Hills Baptist Church
 


As Senior Pastor of Desert Hills Baptist Church, I would like to welcome you to our PRAISE Blog!
Everyone (members, non-members, anywhere in the US or other countries) will have the opportunity to blog their PRAISES
as often as you feel led to and we will be compiling all PRAISES on our website blog, to make a MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE.

Years ago in my own life, I was going through a particularly hard time, (yep, Christians/Pastors have problems too).
I counseled with my Pastor at the time and he gave me the keys to unlocking all despair. A formula of sorts to dealing with darkness. Simply put, PRAISE GOD!

Not only is He worthy, but praise requires the believer to meditate on all of God's Wonder, Grace, Mercy, Love and Compassion.
Upon reviewing all God has done, is doing, and frankly who He is, one's own countenance cannot help but be lifted up.
Besides that, the Bible itself declares, it is comely for the righteous to Praise God, Psalm 33:1. It is a form of sacrifices that
God Himself sponsors and inhabits, Hebrews 13:15.


Our MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE differs because IT WILL BE FOR PRAISES ONLY & CONTINUALLY.
Our Mountain of Praise will become a place of refuge and encouragement for the lost and the saved alike!

As we offer our praises for God and how He has forgiven us through the shed blood of His son, Jesus.
We can also post how He has answered specific requests, delivered from temptations, and blesses us beyond belief.

MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE has the potential to literally reach the world and change it one praise at a time!

Until we are called home, and the church is raptured, let us build this Mountain together as a permanent testament to God's Goodness.
Be blessed! Then PRAISE about it! Psalm 145:4-12 (Look it up!!!!)

Always Praising Him,
Pastor Scott

DEBRA WILSON, S. CA. said 4/2/2020 10:19:47 AM :
I wanted to give a word of encouragement for a Friend that is in the hospital with the coronavirus. Her name is Teresa. She is in the hospital with double pneumonia and was in an induced comma.
We started a prayer chain on Facebook and also at our church. The very same day we began praying the doctor said he saw signs of IMPROVEMENT! Yesterday they shut off the medications that were keeping her in a comma. She quickly regained consciousness and was responding to questions by blinking her eyes and wiggling her feet and hands! She is getting BETTER each day. THANK YOU Jesus. The devil is a LIAR and we REJECT ALL SICKNESS and DISEASE! Amen
WILLIAM (BILL) AND TERRESA said 3/31/2020 6:21:45 PM :
It's the GOODNESS of the Lord to HEAR the PRAYERS of HIS people!
Our son and his friend were stranded out of the United States in another country and the Lord spoke to us saying HE WOULD get them back HOME SAFELY and PRAISE HIS NAME HE got them OUT by a MIRACLE, AGAINST ALL the ODDS! TRUST in the Lord and LOOK TO HIM in these very troubled days! It sure wasn't our government that got our son safely home; our government had shut down the consulate there and seemed to have just abandoned our citizens to their fate. THANK YOU Jesus SO MUCH for YOUR KINDNESS and for ALL THAT YOU DO!! NOTHING is too HARD FOR YOU, and it's HUMBLING when YOU MOVE on our behalf!! We PRAISE and THANK YOU!!
CAROL said 3/28/2020 10:15:51 AM :
In this time of so much uncertainty and fear we all need to LET GO and just SURRENDER unto the Lord! It’s NOT giving up, it is GIVING IN, and it is giving in to a POWER GREATER than ANYTHING that causes us to fear or worry! LET GO, and LET the Lord be MIGHTY for us in ALL THINGS!! PRAISE God!!
GLEN said 3/25/2020 9:39:16 AM :

THOMAS said 3/24/2020 11:09:30 AM :
I THANK Jesus that our increasingly failing government in the USA has NOT shut down the company that I work for by proclaiming it to be non-essential in their infinite "wisdom"!

I THANK Jesus that the company I work for has NOT decided to commit suicide, and deny products and services that people need, and abandon it's employees to the unemployment line, and possible homelessness!

So far I am surviving as our country falls deeper into the midst of politically correct economic and social suicide! Even churches have decided to delete Heb. 10:25 from their Bibles, following the will of men, rather than the WILL OF GOD!

I THANK Jesus for GIVING me the MEANS to live while I am in this world! I will CONTINUE to WORK to PLEASE HIM (Col. 3:23) and to PULL my own weight in this world (2 Thes. 3:10), until this ability is taken away from me by ungodly, and unwise men!

As always I LOOK FORWARD to the COMING of Jesus Christ to RESTORE sanity and love to this world that is in spiritual critical condition and fading fast!!
IRIS MARTINEZ said 3/22/2020 10:48:35 AM :

God BLESS!
