Every created being living on planet earth were created with a instinct to praise and worship. These created things—a person, the sun, moon, and stars, heavens, all kinds of animals, and so on was place here on earth to praise God Almighty. We were pre-wired that way by Him. He created and made these things for His good pleasure. In return we praise Him. If you need a scripture reference for this, look in Psalm 148; which contains a list of created things who praise God. Yes, it is our duty and a privilege for being alive today.
Psalms 115:17 states, “The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.” And look at, Isaiah 38:18, which states, “For the grave cannot praise thee; death cannot celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit can hope for thy truth.” These verses show that praising the Creator is our purpose in this life, not the dead. But they also explain how living people in dead traditions tend not to praise God any more than literal corpses do. Do you want to be followers of dead traditions of men? Hope not.
We are alive unto righteousness, and serve a living God. Just think about His goodness!
God is good to all, who call on Him in truth? Gary Oliver, a psalmist and pastor of Tabernacle of Praise, once said, “The highest praise is not worship but obedience.” Are you obeying the call to praise and worship to the Most High God today? You need to praise Him in obedience to the truth. The truth is found in God’s Word, and is sung or recited. If you know the truth, you will begin to praise Him, not for what He has done, but for who He is to you.
Are you moving and in your right state of mind? Have food to eat? Have a nice place to live in? You should have praise in your mouth that will helpfully show in your actions, after declaring the goodness of God. AMEN.
