Did you think about what I said yesterday?
If you spend more time praising God, than worrying your life will change dramatically!
Selah (pause and think about it).
Praise Your Heavenly Father, Right Now!
Get your praise on, 5…4…3…2…1…
Do whatever God is leading you to do; do it from your heart.
Get your mind off yourself, and began to look upwards, and praise Him!
Everyone needs encouragement sometimes, but don’t let that be a habit.
God has giving you the want to on the inside, but YOU must do something to stir it up – sing, dance, leap, lift your hands, shout etc.
I hope you are not just sitting there at your computer. Get up, or if you cannot get up out of a chair, move something. Praise God!
The bible says if you don’t cry out to God, the rocks will do it for you (Luke 19:37-40). That will be shameful as a Christian.
Where is the love? Honor? Respect? Do you value the Lord in your life?
Before you answer these questions, please let me do some quick review for our first-timers:
What is praise? Praise is nothing more than the outward expression of your inner faith. By faith express one of the following to your Heavenly Father, or your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Yadah means to willfully throw your hands up to praise with power.
Towdah, we lift our hands, as a sacrificial offering for future things that are unseen.
Halal means to celebrate, or act clamorously foolish in your p r a i s e.
Tehillah, we sing a new song unto the Lord – in the gift of tongues as well.
Ruwa means to give your best shout, like an alarming trumpet – Glory!
Shabach, shouting, means to address in a L O U D tone and glorifying the Lord
Taqa’ (tä—kah’), we clap our hands in applaud; rejoicing
Alaz means “to rejoice, to exult, to jump for joy”.
Karar means “to dance and whirl about”.
Machowl (ma’khole) means “a round dance, like whirling particles, as sand)”.
Mechowlah (mek-o-la’) means “a dance:-company dances” with more than one people.
Did you answer the questions above? Where you honest with yourself?
I really do hope so. It will be a shame to have a stone praise for you. We all know that this nonliving object will become supernaturally voice, and begin to praise your Creator on your behalf. UHMM!
Are you going to let this happen? Are you that hardhearted? If so, REPENT! The Kingdom of God is at hand. If you read these words and not do them, you are sinning. REPENT NOW!
It’s not time to play religious games. It’s time to praise and worship the creator, God, until there is no more breath left in your living body. Psalms 115:17 states, “The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.”
In other words, let’s read the message bible of Psalms 115:17-18:
“Dead people can’t praise God— not a word to be heard from those buried in the ground. But we bless God, oh yes— we bless him now, we bless him always! Hallelujah!”
Praise is who we are as Christians, and this is something that we do.
“Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.” – Psalms 33:1
You are the children of the Most High God, Elohiym (el-o-hem’). Obey Him and celebrate on a daily basis! Why? He merits your praise.
Did God wake you up this morning? Yes, He did. Some people did not.
You should praise him, just for that reason alone.
You are alive today! Amen.
Here is another scripture verse for all those who are like Thomas.
Now 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.”
In other words, let’s read the Message bible for clarity:
“The dead don’t thank you, and choirs don’t sing praises from the morgue. Those buried six feet under don’t witness to your faithful ways. It’s the living—live men, live women—who thank you, just as I’m doing right now…”
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.
What do you think you would be doing in heaven? Praising & Worshipping Elohyim!
Do you want to be followers of dead traditions of men? Following those who do not praise or worship, I hope not. If you are, run away from them as fast as you can. Those people are being disobedient to the Word of God, and you should question your walk with them? The bible said not to be unequally yoke with unbelievers. That means some so- called Christians as well. If they cannot praise and worship God, they should not be a part of your life. You can love them from a distance, and pray for them until the eyes of their understanding be enlightened. Amen!
We are alive unto righteousness, and serve a living God. Praise is a part of who you are, and we worship Him because we love Him. No more, No less.
Pazaz before the Lord, and offer your sacrifice of praise. Do you know what pazaz means? It is another Hebrew word that you can use to express love toward Him.
Pazaz means “to leap, to spring, to bound, be agile – made strong, be supple as if separating the limbs, or flee as a gazelle.
This word is found in 1 Chronicles 15:29 and 2 Samuel 6:16: “And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.”
King David pazaz in his praise before the Lord’s presence, and everyone was watching. Not too many will give there best to God, like King David. To be grateful, and willing to honor the One who give good gift unto us.
The next scripture found is Genesis 49:24:
“But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)”
The focus here is the fact that his arms were made agile or strong by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob. It wasn’t his own strength, but it was the power of God through his praise.
Pazaz before the Lord, as a gazelle. Leap & Dance, before Him!
He is worthy of such great joy, get up from the computer and leap in Him.
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
