Praise God every day

29 January 2018
‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory’

Praising God isn’t a religious activity that belongs only in church on Sunday morning. The Bible says: ‘From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name is to be praised’ (Psalm 113:3 NKJV). That means our first words in the morning and our last words at night should be praise to God. But it can be so much easier to remember this and to praise Him when times are great, when we’ve got loads to thank Him for and we’re overwhelmed by His goodness and faithfulness. Continual praise is so much harder when we’re facing difficult circumstances and struggling to see God’s goodness in the middle of what we’re going through. But God asks us to keep praising and keep being thankful even in those hard times. The Bible says: ‘Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus’ (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV). Whatever we’re going through, God is still God. He doesn’t change. His goodness, faithfulness and love remain. No matter what’s going on in our lives, He is still worthy of our praise. ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power.’ When we speak words of love and appreciation, we become closer to people. So one of the ways we can get closer to God is to start praising Him more. The psalmist wrote: ‘I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips’ (Psalm 34:1 NIV). Let’s have the same attitude as the psalmist and let’s commit to spending more time praising God.

What Now?
