praising God

Have you ever tried to interrupt your day with praising God?

It’s an interesting exercise.

  • Trust God
  • Thank God
  • Love and Serve God
  • Seek God
  • Forgive others
  • Work as unto the Lord

Problem — We can go through the motions or we can ignore the motions.

We can go through the motions of praising God. We can sing the songs when we gather together and not let them change us so we leave a different way than we came in.

It’s a lifestyle of praise we need to cultivate.

What happens when we gather needs to be a a natural response to how we live our lives.

Why does God want us to praise Him?

That’s a great question. I’m so glad you asked.

We become like what we worship

Who is the One we praise?

Praising God with our whole heart can spring from any part of our heart

Sometimes praising God with our whole heart springs from emotion

Sometimes praising God with our whole heart springs from a decision

2 Chronicles 20

Sometimes praising God with our whole heart springs from action

Joshua 6

Do you praise God with your whole heart?

You know you are praising God with your whole heart when joy fills your life. When we praise him we enter his presence (Psalm 22:3) and in His presence is fullness of joy. Psalm 16:11

  • Ignorance: Didn’t know you could praise God with your whole heart — now you know.
  • Arrogance: If you don’t think God is to be praise — need to grow in your knowledge of God.
  • Sin: Sin separates us from God — confession and repentance is the key
  • Offence: Has God done something that you don’t agree with or not done something you expect him to do? Learn to live unoffended at Him. He will work all things together for good.
