How to Praise God

How to praise God

How to praise God” is written by Adeola Adedoyin

We were able to discover in our last teaching the value in praise and the wonders in praise.

It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord(psalms 92:1) one of the wonders of praise is that it ushers you into the presence of the lord(psalm 100:4). in the presence of God, the there is fullness of joy(psalm16:11). It is impossible to be in the presence of God and remain the same.

I will discuss tonight three ways to praise God.

The first way to praise the Lord is by Singing and Dancing: Singing and dancing by a true child of God reflects the joy bubbling in one’s heart. No one can be truly happy and successfully hide it. It is written that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Singing and dancing can be a reflection on the mighty work of God that we have seen and heard. This attitude is not limited in scope. People of all age groups are to praise God. (Matt21:9; Hosea 2:15).

When we sing and dance in the presence of God like a baby without mindful of who is watching us, this make God to be delighted in us. And when father is delighted in His child, He shower blessing on such child.

King David knew this key, whenever he is praising God, he will sing and dance like a baby. This attitude make God to be happy and make God to call king David the man of his soul.

When we’re joyful our praise will go to our God and He will shower His blessing on us.

The second way of praising God is by Clapping And Instruments of music:

The clapping of hands and the use of instruments of music are other way a Christian can express his or her appreciation to God. Psalm41:1 says, oh clap your hand all ye people.
When it is done orderly and decently, it is pleasing unto God.

We can use various instruments of music like trimbrel, volin, organ, piano, and drum to praise God (psalm150:1-6). This attitude pleases God and it makes Him to be happy with and shower His blessings on us.

The last third way of praising God is Praising God in the Holy spirit: We re enjoined to redeem the time because the days are full of evil (Eph5:14-19).

A way of doing this is to make a melody in our heart and sing spiritual songs, this preventing the tongue from going astray. We can hand over the tongue to the Holy spirit to sing spiritual songs to the lord.

In conclusion we are enjoined to be the doer of the word not the hearer only.

Today’s teaching is a practical one which should be put into practice now and always. Sing unto the lord, dance unto him, clap your hand, use musical instruments to praise your maker. All these pleasing Him and there is a great reward for doing this.

Praise and its wonders

Praise and its wonders

A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; and a ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

Acts 16:25-26 KJV
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. [26] And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

What does it requires to praise God? The answer is “breath.” It’s let everything that has breathpraise the lord – not “bread” – as long as you are still breathing you owe God praise.

Psalm 150:6 KJV
“Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord . Praise ye the Lord.”

In everything (not for everything) praise the lord – 1.Thes.5:18

Praise is where God live. It’s God’s dwelling place. It’s His habitation.

Psalm 22:3 KJV
“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”

If you want to seek God, pray. If you want to see God, praise Him.

Praise is not occasional/spontaneous acknowledgment of good deeds. It doesn’t leaves with much options, praise is a commandment (Psalm.150:6).

Get this straight: if you wait for something spectacular to happen before you praise God, you will wait forever.

However, If you must enjoy the best of God obedience is mandatory (Deu.28:1-3).

There is divine ideas in praise. You can’t praise God and be stranded of ideas in life. It’s my prayer you won’t get to a point where you will no longer know what to do again. Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry was never stranded of what to do.

John 6:6 KJV
“And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.”

Anytime that He was confronted with seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks and the supernatural flows.

Praise expands people – appreciation equals multiplication. You can’t praise God and be small.

Psalm 67:6 KJV
“Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
“And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.”

Praise provokes the release of God’s presence. There is no mortal man that can cause things to happen on His own. Trying to lift your problem without the Supernatural(God) is like trying lift a lorry without a jack. It’s God’s presence that makes things happen. God is the supernatural. Praise engenders the release of the supernatural. The supernatural is the backbone of life( every natural happening has it’s supernatural antecedent).

Praise warfare is the platform where all our battles are transfered unto God. Praise warriors become spectators in their own fights.

2 Chronicles 20:22 KJV
“And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”

 2 Chronicles 20:23 KJV
“For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them : and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.”

It’s my prayer as you put on the garment of praise every opposition that is confronting you will help to kill one another in the name of Jesus.

King David faced the most incessant oppositions during his time but he overcame them all because he was an addicted praise warrior.

Hear this: Praise connects humanity with divinity.

In conclusion, God does not owe any natural man for anything, you owe Him obedience to the injunction of praise.
I have seen so many frustrated prayer warriors, but I have never seen a frustrated praise warrior. Things are bad because you are sad; you are not sad because things are bad. Friend, Only If you can turn all your bitterness, despondencies, grumblings, and hatreds into praise you will be setting you foot on a pedestal of enthronement and multiplication, favour, ideas, etc can never be farfetched.
