The Power of Praise

There are days when praising the Lord is the last thing we want to do. It may be that weíve had a big disappointment or a tragedy in our lives.

The reason could be that we had a bad day at the office or maybe we are just going through a dry period in our walk with the Lord.

But our worldly circumstances should never dictate whether we praise God or not. Infact despite the way things appear to us, the Lord always deserves our praise, and we should be diligent in offering our praise to Him.

Praising God magnifies Him.
When we worship the Lord, He receives what is due Him. (Psalm 145:1-5)

Praise also modifies our estimation of ourselves, deflating our egos. Our pride remains in check as we stand in awe of the king of glory.

Praise reveals our devotion to Him.
We demonstrate our determination to lift His name up when we praise Him through all our circumstances.

Praise also motivates us to holy living.
It is difficult to praise God when we are running in the opposite direction from Him.

Praise ministers to us in spirit, soul and body.
Spiritually, we gain humility and release joy.
In our souls, our vision is cleared and our emotions are calmed and physically we release tension as Godís energy is powered into our lives.

God inhabits our praise.
When our praise goes up to Him we are assured that His blessings will come down to us.

God bless!
