PRAISE HIS NAME
MAIN TEXT: PSALM 104:1’Praise the LORD, my soul! O LORD, my God how great you are! You are clothed with majesty and glory;
Psalm 104:2 – ‘You cover yourself with light. You have spread out the heavens like a tent’.
God does not work based on our program but he works based on His. The Lord is God, the Maker of all things; the King of glory. He is an awesome God who reigns and rules over everything. Out of nothing He makes significant things. Praise the Lord for He is good. God’s nature is goodness, mercy, love and justice. No matter how we look at things, God is good.
The bible speaks of trees clapping their hands in praise and the mountains exalting God; all of creation is designed to praise Him. And when you don’t, there is emptiness within you that nothing else can fill.
In Psalm 141:2, we read, ‘Let my prayer be set before you as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
Here, prayer in Hebrew means, ‘songs of praise’ and the bible uses it not less than 72 times in this context. If God receives praises from these inanimate things, how much more, when it is coming from you; His image and likeness. Don’t starve God of His food. You are a better worshipper than trees or the mountains. Besides, worshiping God is one of the reasons man was created.
In praise, you are the Initiator and God is the Responder. When we praise God, we enlarge our awareness of Him. We take our minds off ourselves and set them on God. We put the emphasis on Him alone.
O LORD YOU HAVE SET THE EARTH FIRMLY ON ITS FOUNDATIONS AND IT WILL NEVER BE MOVED
Prayer: O God, may your praise continually be on the lips of your people, in Jesus name. Amen.BY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
