What is praise?

Sing praises to the LORD, who sits enthroned in Zion!  Tell among the peoples his deeds!    Psalm 9:11 (ESV)

As I was sitting in the café of our church on Sunday morning…listening to the people sing as the music played…the above verse came to mind.  Specifically, the second part resounded in my mind.  ‘Tell among the peoples his deeds’…my paraphrase being, BE OUTSPOKEN AND BOLD WHEN BRAGGING ABOUT GOD’S HANDIWORK!   This is what praise is, thanking him for all he has done.  But that’s not all.  I would encourage you that this should also include all that he is doing and is about to do.

Have you recognized his hand in your life in the past?  Praise him for those times.  Can you see him at work now?  Rest in the fact that he is…..and he is already at work in the things to come in your life.  Praise him for that as well.

Praise the LORD today…

 

…that he is control.

 

…that he cares for & loves us.

 

…and that he dwells among us 24/7.
