Topic: The Blessing Of Praise [Thursday March 8, 2018]
Scripture: Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. Psalm 67:5-7
Thought For The Day: When you praise God, you please Him and when you please Him, He blesses you.
The pathway of praise is the highway of the blessing. To be in the way of praise is to be in the way of the blessing. Praise invokes the Presence of God and moves God to release the blessing on the praiser. Psalms 50:23 says, Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me…
This implies that anyone who praises God makes God happy. It does not matter the kind of sacrifice you want to give to God, if you are praise-less, then, that sacrifice is not useful. So, the equation is simple: When you praise God, you please Him and when you please Him, He blesses you.
When you praise God, it is like you are giving to God what He cannot give to Himself and then He is moved to do for you what you cannot do for yourself.
When God blesses us, two things happen;
1. The increase of the earth is surrendered or released to us.
2. Fear-provoking acts of God are manifested in our lives.
Beloved, to experience God’s blessing, we must refuse to exist in praiselessness and unthankfulness, because when the enemy wants to attack your blessing, he attacks your praise; refuse it!
Remember This: When you praise God, you please Him and when you please Him, He blesses you.
- Praise God always and make it a conscious and consistent practice.
- Ensure that your conscience is undefiled, free of guilt and sin.
Prayer: O Lord, I will praise You at all times. I invoke the blessing of praise on my life today. I ask that You do for me what I cannot do for myself, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
