Revelation 4:10 (NKJV) The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Praise is the outward expression of your personal joy! We praise God in worship on Sunday morning. We praise our team when they do well at sporting events. We praise our kids when they achieve a goal or do something special.
Isn’t cheering someone’s success and accomplishments an invigorating experience? You’ll find the same energy within your spiritual life when you consider the mighty acts of God in history, as well as the Lord’s acts in your own life. It will allow you to celebrate the joy and wonder of your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Praise not only is an expression of your joy in the Lord, but it also gives you a taste of what heaven will be like. If you read the last book of the Bible, Revelation, you will see this Praise and Worship unfold. There’s a lot of praise and worship going on. I think God wants us to learn that a praiseful expression and attitude in this life, as preparation for the next life in the Lord!
Few things will strengthen your faith more than when you cultivate a rich understanding of God through worship. Praise God by remembering His faithfulness to you throughout your years and by looking forward to God’s promises. When you worship God, your faith will be strengthened, your heart encouraged, and your vision of who God is and how the Lord works will grow.
Point to ponder- The Battle is on but Fight back with your Praise. If your life is under seige in this season, please remember today’s message “Fight back with your praise of God”!
