Verse Of The Day : Sing to the LORD! Praise the LORD! For he rescues the oppressed from the clutches of evildoers. Jeremiah 20:13
Thought of The Day : Genuine praise to God triggers divine intervention.
LISTEN : A sincere praise to God is an expression of our humility, and humility brings favour. Praise triggers the presence of God (2 Kings 2:15); it’s the atmosphere of God’s presence and manifestations. Where genuine praise goes God goes. He who praises God glorifies Him, and he who glorifies Him will attract His blessings. My dear, learn to always make use of praise. Don’t allow any situations to shut your mouth; instead, give praise to God no matter what. For if it’s hard for you to offer praise to God, it will be hard for God to release His favour on you. Praise opens the heavens to you; for if you can praise you can connect to God and His mercy. A Praiser don’t beg for the presence of God, because he or she is already soaked in His presence through praise. What is praise? To praise is to express thanks to or love and respect for God. It means to worship and value God. God should be praised. The Bible says,
“But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel.”
God is holy and should receive our praises, for praise glorifies Him. The Bible says,
“Whoso offers praise glorifies me: and to him that orders his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.”
Beloved, when you praise God you glorify Him, and when you glorify Him you will attract His love and receive access to divine revelations. Besides, Praise creates energy. So, employ it often. When you are happy, praise God. When you are heartbroken, praise God. When your situation seems hopeless, praise God. In all circumstances, praise God. For if you can praise God no matter the situation, He can show up for you in all situations. Remember, when you give praise to God you’ll receive His grace. Be wise!
