The Joy of Praise!

06/02/2020 All day

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!” – Psalm 150:6 (NIV).

I once got into the middle of a church service. What I witnessed was moving. All hands were raised in a lovely wave of praise. The singing going on was adorable, a chorus of angelic voices, trumpets, drums and flutes. Moved I joined in too.

In the book of Revelation we see that all the saints gather before the Lord and sing praises to him. Thy sing “Worthy are you Lord to receive glory and honor” (Rev 4:18).

But why should we praise God. We praise God for all the good things He has done for us. We acknowledge His presence in our lives and power to direct the course of our lives. Praise also opens doors as the Psalmist says, “Lift up your heads, you gates;  be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in” ( Psalm 24:7-8)

God is not yearning for praises from mankind. Yet each time we lift up our hands to praise we become of His was wonderful creation. So, why not begin today by praising him

Prayer for Today: Lord Father in heaven, I start today by giving you praise for who you are and your goodness!
