You have 5 seconds to get enthusiastic about praising your Lord and Savior. Get your praise on, 5…4…3…2…1…
Hala, H a l l e l u j a h !
Todah, even if you don’t feel like it. It’s not in your feeling. It’s not called a sacrifice for nothing.
Taqua’, get up and move, dance, if you feel lead too!
There are endless opportunities for praise. Take advance of every one- clap your hands, lift of hands, sing, leap of joy, shout, dance with someone, etc.
Let’s praise our God:
There’s No One who can Compare to My God
You’re an Awesome God, You’re a Mighty King, and You’re My Great Defend!!!
H a l l e l u j a h!
You’re a Living Tabernacle
“Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” -1 Peter 2:5
The Lord isn’t finished, we are still being built. Let’s read it in the Message Bible:
“Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.”
This is so good. Let’s continue reading in the Living Bible:
“And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ; you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.”
Do you understand? You are a priest of a living tabernacle (your body), and as priest, you are to draw near to God (Ex 19:22, 24:2, 28:43, 30:20).
“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. – James 4:8a
By all rights, you should call yourself “The Priest of the Lord”. Why? Because He will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations (Isaiah 61:6, 11). Your praise is not for you, but for someone else. They need to see the glory of God, the goodness of God, the strength of God, etc.
This is another reason why we praise Him…
“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” – Hebrews 10:22
“Let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. But to do good and to communicate (to share with others) forget not; for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” – Hebrews 13: 15-16
Plus, the word of God said, “…praise is comely for the upright.” – Psalms 33:1
It looks good on you, and God is well-pleased with your praise. Amen.
Praise is used to get into the presence of God and to set ambushes for the enemy. Read my previous blog called “You Must Develop Your Faith Through Praise.” People praise many things besides God. When we are in love, we go on and on about that person and tell everyone we come into contact with. We are so blissful and excited. Have you ever watched spectators at a ballgame or a music concert? They jump up and down, yell, and wave their arms in the air. What are they doing? Praising! How much more should we express our love for God, our Creator!
There are many forms of praise, and I have been sharing some of them with you. I hope they have been a blessing to you. If you are here for the first time, please review by past blog archive (location at the bottom of page). Each praise word has its own name, and meaning. I encourage you to study them, and share your new Hebrew words with others. It should not be done only when you “feel like it”. It a sacrifice remember (see Hebrews 13:15).
When we praise something or someone, we talk about the wonderful qualities. Right! Just think of God’s attributes, it will help you to begin to praise Him from your heart. If you need some help, check out my past blog called “Praise Program, Just for You.” It will stir your spirit into praising and worship God. I’m 100% positive!
Are you alive today? A living tabernacle unto God? Yes, you are!
It’s not made with hands (2 Corinthians 5:1-2), but alive in Heaven.
Now you cannot leave without praising and worship the Creator of All things, Praise Adoni (ad-o-noy’: Hebrew meaning Lord, my Lord, God):
Sing Praise unto the Lord God Adonai
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
