Expression Of Praise

1 Peter 2:9 tells us, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” We are the people acquired by God! We must continually proclaim our praise and worship to Him.
We are a special people to God, a royal priesthood, continually called to be ministering with our sacrifice of worship in the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The book of Hebrews reminds us of this responsibility we have today, “so let us offer to God through him the sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name” (Hebrews 13:15). Our lips must always be declaring the greatness of our God. He is worthy of all our praise and worship! While we have breath and life, we must exalt God’s name together!
“But we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will give thanks to you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise.” Psalm 79:13 (ESV)
Look at the pasture He has laid forth for us. He has satisfied us in every way. He has taken upon Himself the penalty for our sin. He has restored us into life abundant and everlasting. He has made us into a people for His own possession to represent Him to the nations. He has filled us with His Holy Spirit, allowing us to experience its fruit fully. What a blessing it is to have the Lord as our Shepherd, for under His care we truly shall not want.
“O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.” Isaiah 25:1 (ESV)
May we not lose sight of the power of the God we serve. He spoke and everything that is happened. Think of this kind of power. We have not seen anything close to the might of God, and yet with all of that power, the Lord does not reign over us without love and mercy. He comes as a Servant-King, calling us to worship as we are overwhelmed by His pursuit of us and faithful provision for us.
“I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.” Psalm 108:3-4 (ESV)
Thank the Lord for the circumstances He has brought you through. Praise Him for His divine intervention in the situations that He has shielded you from. Praise the Lord for revealing His peace, for distributing His provisions, and for healing your hurts. Testify of His faithfulness.
“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.” Psalm 95:1-5 (ESV)
Express your praise to God for He is a great God. He is a great King above all other gods. The earth is His. The mountains are His. The sea is His. The dry land is His. You are His. There is no one else like you. God has uniquely created you so that you can uniquely worship Him and express your praise to Him.
