Psalm 100:4(KJV) Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
God is the Almighty God, the creator of the universe and all that is in it. One thing God will not do for Himself is to praise himself. Praise is appreciating God for His faithfulness and all He has done and will do. God delights in it and makes it his habitation (Ps. 22:3).
Praising God is a command and not a suggestion. 1Thess 5:18(AMPC) says “Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]“. And this must be done sincerely and with the whole of our hearts and being.
Show me a joyful man and I will show you a praiseful man who is full of faith. What you can’t praise God for you don’t have faith for. Any situation or challenge that takes the joy out of your heart has killed your faith (Habakkuk 3:17-19; Joel 1:12; Isa.12:3). No matter what happens, never allow the devil to steal your joy for it is a gateway into God’s very presence. True praise provokes God to arise on our behalf in life’s terrible situations and it delivers our victory. When you have done all you know to do and nothing seems to change, praise God for it is a sure means to victory (1Chron. 20:20-23 Acts16:25-26).
Praise gives rise to Supernatural Increase (Psalm 67:3-7).
Go into today knowing that a praiseful man is a joyful man. Consciously praise God and expect a supernatural increase in every area of your life.
Prayer: Lord, give me the garment of praise afresh. Amen.
