Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Psalm 67:3
Praise is cardinal to the believer, because it is our cheapest access to the most High God. Because He inhabit the praise of His people; But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Psalm 22:3
What is praise?
Praise is appreciating God for His person. You just appreciate and worship Him for who He is. And who He is to you, because is a privilege to be called His own. Your understanding of who God is and how high is your most High God causes His praise to flow from you. It is a beautiful thing to give Him praise and not just once in a while, but to make it a lifestyle. Praise is comely to God. Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely. Psalm 147:1 Make it your lifestyle because God is excited at praise. He is motivated and mobilized by praise. You can get God easily with praise. Remember King David, the man after God’s heart with all his imperfection; became God’s darling by praise. God’s heart was always with him.
David knew that without God, he is nothing and he knew that through praise he can maintain God’s presence around Him always. He said Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments. Psalm 119:164 And as you can see in scriptures, the whole of Saul’s army could not handle him because of divine presence. If you want to see God back you up, live a life of endless praise. God will always be there. Praise will launch you into a life of endless miracles, if you understand the effect of praise in a believer’s life.
Praise is a God – given weapon in your hands with which to humiliate Satan and his followers. Every time you obey the law of praise, you silence your adversaries. Praise is the way into God’s presence and God never change. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalm 100:4 And his presence is to comfort you and levels the problems. You get into His presence with singing, songs of praise and worship not complaining. Wherever you find yourself in a tough situation not knowing what to do our thick darkness around you, instead of feel depressed, give Him praise and watch His presence bringing you solutions and setting you free.
By making praise your lifestyle you become an all around winner, in the battles of life. Nothing greases life like praise! There is power in praise; unfortunately, the power in praise has been ignores into the body of Christ. It is time to start praising God and to bless Him only! To write out a list of all He has done, and begin to praise Him for them. For the healing you have encounter, for His protection over you life, for breath and don’t take it for granted.
Praise focus on God’s faithfulness. It is also focusing on the efficacy of scriptures.
It is focusing on the integrity of God and the insight that you have received. This is what makes praise endless! Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it 1. Thessalonians 5:24. Come and celebrate God’s goodness with us and His praise will continue be in my mouth. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; Psalm 149: 6
Don’t miss it for anything!
God bless you
