How To Praise God

Did You Know That It's Important To Praise God?
(Daily Inspirational Memory Verse) 

"Praise our God all peoples, let the sound of His praise be heard" 

Psalm 66:8




Do you ever find it hard to praise God? Does it seem as if praising God is some difficult task on your to-do list?  Are you finding it hard to praise God in some of the difficult circumstances that you may be facing in your life? Today, we'll discuss how to praise God through every storm.

WHY DO YOU THINK WE HAVE TO BE COMMANDED TO PRAISE GOD?

Psalm 66:8 which is our memory verse today tells us to "praise our God all peoples, let the sound of His praise be heard." In this case, we should praise God and get other people to praise God so that the sound of Praise can be heard in loud volume all over the earth!

Psalm 150:4 conveys that we should "praise Him with the timbrel in dance: praise Him with the stringed instruments and organs." So not only are we to praise God with our mouths but we should praise God with our whole bodies.

BUT WHY?

It's simple because we were commanded to. In Matthew's 22:37 Jesus says to a Pharisee that the greatest commandment is to "love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, and with all your soul." When we love God we obey Him. The Word of God reveals to us in 1 Samuel 15:22-24 that "obedience is better than sacrifice." So, no matter what you're going through, praise God because He commanded us to do it. 

 WHY WERE WE COMMANDED TO PRAISE GOD?

This is a good question that may not have a direct answer. Yet, I believe that God knew that we would be tested and tried. 

In  Psalm 66:10-12  David gives us some insight on praising God through tests and trials as he conveys " for you God tested us, you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance."  In this same passage of scripture, just two scriptures up, in verse 8 we find David saying, "praise our God all people let the sound of our praises be heard." This indicates that though tested and tried we should praise our God who will bring us to an abundant place.

IT'S CRITICAL THAT WE PRAISE GOD IN HARD PLACES BECAUSE IT IS OUR KEY TO A BETTER END!

The children of Isreal turned an 11-day trip into a 40-year journey because they would not praise God during their wilderness experience. Instead, they murmured and complained and even worshiped idols. When you are going through hardships and trials it's not up to you to figure out how you're going to get out of it. Psalms 37:23 reveals that "the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way." Your job is to remain prayerful, praiseful, and obedient to the instructions that God gives you during the process of your trial. 

Yet, it's important that you've accessed the situation, and you know that the trial is an attack of the enemy and not something you've induced upon yourself because of disobedience. 

I always tell people to seek God through their trials. Ask Him to point out things in their life that could be self-inflicted because sometimes that's the case. 

I tell them to avoid going into that false sense of humility and downing themselves ext. If there is sin in the camp, repent! Ask God to forgive you and turn from that way.  

The word reveals in 2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my people which are called by name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." It is wrong for you to be a seasoned believer and asking people for prayer about situations that you know you've self-induced, especially, if you're not being honest about it when you ask.    

[One time I had to go to the altar and tell, not a long story, but a synopsis of a situation that I was going through in my life and the sin I thought was causing it. I'm not saying I've only sinned once, but I'm saying I was caught up in a sin that I couldn't break free from through personal prayer, and I had to come clean about it to get delivered. Because I came clean about it, the person could truly pray a prayer of deliverance over me, and I did get delivered from that sin and situation]

When you're not honest about your situation, the people who are praying for you are going to pray amiss, because they will be praying based on the Word of God which has many conditions to it. If you know that you're violating one or many of the conditions in God's word, then get with God about your life, and ask Him to help you get it straightened out. Deep down inside, you know the truth. 

Regardless of whether your trial is self-induced or not it's important to praise God through it. He will help lead and Guide you to an abundant place. 

Even in seasons of bliss where everything is going great and awesome, praise God. Don't ever get too comfortable in your life that prayer and praise takes a backseat. Spend time with the one who knows you best and praise His Holy Name!

God Inhabits The Praises Of His People

The Benefits Of Praising God Through Afflictions  (Daily Inspirational Memory Verse)  "But thou are holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of  His people." Psalm 22:3 Hey, thanks for joining me here with Your Daily Inspirational Bible Verses. Today the focus is all about praising God through your afflictions.  It's quite natural to withdraw and pull inward when you're going through afflictions in your life. You may find yourself being quieter and less verbal about things because you're adapting and finding ways to cope with what has been presented to you. Although that approach may be helpful in some ways, it could be damaging in others. Especially if you get quiet on God.  If you find yourself in a praiseless environment due to your afflictions then you've accepted them as the ruling factor over your circumstances and you perceive them to be more powerful than God. You're literally saying that your circumstances and the people
