WHAT IS GETTING YOUR PRAISE?

We give our time and attention to many things in life that either demand it from us or that we give it to away freely because we love that person or thing. But those things are not meant to be praised, loved yes, but not praised.

So, who or what deserves our praise? God, God is the only one who is deserving of our praise! We shouldn’t see praising God as a duty that we have to fulfill; it’s not just another thing to check off our list. Praise to God is so much more! Praise is an intimate offering to the Lord from our hearts acknowledging who God is and what He has done for us.  I encourage you to stop and think about what gets the most praise in your life. Is it God or is it something else? 

PRAISE GIVES US ACCESS TO GOD

(Psalm 100:4 )
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise”. This verse refers to Moses’ Tabernacle in the wilderness. The Tabernacle was divided into three parts. The Outer Court, The Inner Court, and The Holy of Holies where God dwelled.
There was only one gate – one entrance – into The Outer Court. If you wanted to approach God, you had to go through the gate, into the courtyard, and finally into The Holy of Holies.

It pains me to see people skip the praise and worship portion of a service. Worse yet, I’ve led worship in conferences where the Pastor or visiting speaker would skip out on worship, and show up at the very end just in time to speak.

PRAISE IS AN ACT THANKFULNESS

Of course, praise and thankfulness go hand in hand, and there is always so much to be grateful for! If we praised Him all day, every day, we would never finish thanking Him for all of the seen and unseen ways that He cares for us and blesses us. He is a good Father and we will never fully understand how He is constantly working behind the scenes in our lives to love, protect, nurture and favor us.
(Romans 8:28 )
And we know [with great confidence] that God who is deeply concerned about us causes all things to work together as a plan for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.

PRAISE CHANGES YOU

Praise changes relationships. It changes hearts. It changes mindsets. In praise, our focus shifts from us to the Lord. From problems to The Solution. From pain to promise. From hurt to hope.

(Proverbs 27:21 )says, “As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise.” Judson Cornwall says it this way in Let Us Praise. “So often, when we have heated our Spirits in worship . . . thoughts, desires, and attitudes rise to the surface.”

Praising Jesus

To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever! ( Revelation 5:13)
The apostle John gives us a thrilling glimpse into a universal celebration that one day we are going to participate in. He describes four living creatures who surround the throne on which Jesus reigns supreme. These living creatures never stop saying,
While the living creatures proclaim glory, the twenty-four elders fall down and worship. And as the elders praise, millions of angels join in the chorus, singing in a loud voice,
