TEXT: PSALM 35:27-28
(27) Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
(28) And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
KEY VERSE: HEBREWS 13:15
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Praise and thanksgiving to God come from the heart in bubbles of joy that manifest in various ways. The joy of praise and thanksgiving flows from our heart to our mouth, gets formed into articulate words and sounds by our tongue, and comes out through our lips to God and the hearing ears. The psalmist puts it this way: I will praise the name of God with a song and will magnify Him with thanksgiving. New Testament puts it this way in Hebrews 13:15, “By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.”
We can praise God through the following:
Praise and thanksgiving to God do not only involve singing, but also speaking of the wonders of God to Him, to ourselves and to others. The physical body also manifests actions of praise, thanksgiving and worship such as bowing down, kneeling, lying flat on the face, clapping of hands, dancing, raising and waving the hands. Let the psalmist lead us into a practical expression of praise and thanksgiving to God.
We must be apt and lively in the praises of our God. Praise, thanksgiving, and worship are our duty as creatures. We are saved to praise, thank, and worship God. We are enjoined to make His praise glorious. Sing with all liveliness. Clap your hands with joy in honor to His name and in His praise. Testify boldly to others of His gracious works in your life and in the lives of others. Let God be glorified in your life by your dynamic praise and thanksgiving. Let others be inspired by your spirit of praise and thanksgiving to the holy God. Teach your family members, the Church, and those around you the praise of God, and live the life worthy of His praise.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Let your praise to God be part of your daily life.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Praising the Lord always (2x) …
