Praise and Worship Him…
Praise has some benefits:
1. Praise is always associated with the presence of God.
2. Praise testifies of God’s goodness.
3. Praise has the power to deliver us.
We praise God in order to get into His presence. It’s a cool way to get His attention (Psalm 22:3). He is looking to take up residence in our praises. The glory and the anointing fall – the blessings – come to our rightful place in Christ Jesus. Then we recognize God as the Creator of everything, and our Almighty God, just as He did Adam in the coolest of the day.
Praise testimony is evidence of your public avowal. We testify all the time. We praise all the time, and others praise us as well. We like to be praised, and also to praise others for their accomplishments. It is the same for the Creator. We share, declare, and proclaim God’s mighty works to another all the time. We acknowledge what He has done for us. We are told in the scriptures by Him that we are chosen, a holy nation, a royal priesthood, belonging to God; who declare the praises of Him (1 Peter 2:9). How much is it to reciprocate? In our worship, we praise and acknowledge Him for His saving acts. Praise testifies of His goodness towards us. WOW! Praise the Lord!
Praise has the power to deliver us. Do you remember Paul and Silas in jail (Acts 16:24-26)? They prayed and sung praises to God, and were delivered. We all wrestle with something – depression, sadness, loneliness, fear, insecurity, sickness, or pain. Praise does not necessarily put these problems to rest, but praise brings comfort and solace in the midst of these trails. Praise is a way of putting all these matters into perspective. Let’s read Isaiah 61:1-3. It will show us the power of praise in these words:
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”
We don’t praise God in order to obtain these benefits, but it is an instrument that is fitting to the upright in heart (Psalm 33:1). Praise is not a way to manipulate God to get what we want or to gain special favors. NO Way! The genuineness of the heart, love, and integrity of character is where praise begins.
To give of ourselves in the act of worship, just because, we are thankful and grateful to Him. It is this kind of praise that God wants and honors, according to John 4:24.
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
