Topic: Praising God.

Opening Scripture: Psalm 115:17

The dead do not praise the LORD, Nor anyone who goes down in silence.The bible makes us to understand that those who are dead cannot praise God, that means for us who are alive, it’s our responsibility to praise God. This makes us understand that the only reason why we shouldn’t be praising God is because we are dead, that’s the only situation accepted for us not giving praise. Regardless of what the situation on ground is,our praise ought to go up to our King of glory.
God inhabits our praises, that means He lives in our praise, Pslm 22:3-“but thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel”. Praise is giving to God what He won’t give to Himself, when you give God that which belongs to Him, He surely would give you that which belongs to you. When are we to praise God? Pslm 34:1-” I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth”. We ought to praise God at all times, regardless of how we feel or the situation we find ourselves, we ought to praise. David as an example, even when his soul was cast down, he encouraged himself to praise God regardless of what was going on with Him; Psalm 42:11-“why are you cast down, o my soul?, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God”. Despite all, he always found a reason to praise.
When we offer to God praise, we provoke Him to begin to utter things in our favour because in praise we glorify Him ,and when we don’t, things turn the other way round. Pslm 50:22-23-” now consider this, ye that forget God, least I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his Offering praises to God, should not be because of what He has done for us alone, but it should be our lifestyle, let His praises continually be in our mouth, remember only the living can praise the Lord. Remain Blessed.

Lesson for the day:when we offer praises to God, we are glorifying Him.

Quote for the day- ‘let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the Lord! (Pslm 150:6) conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God”.

Lifeforce prayer: Oh Lord, release the forces that will help and lift me forward in life.
Anoint me specially oh Lord never to make wrong choices in life.
Let all my previous mistakes be converted to miracles in the name of Jesus, Like Jabez,God would bless me and enlarge my coast and let me flourish so i can impact my generations to come in Jesus’ name i have prayed. Amen!!
