Praise Him


 

Today’s Reading: Psalm 100

for the Lord is good, his mercy is everlasting and his truth endureth to all generation.” (v.5)

 


Psalm 100 is Psalm for giving thanks. The Hebrew word used here for thanks is Today. It means to give a sacrifice of praise, thanksgiving or thank offering. Though we use thanksgiving and praise interchangeably but the two are different. Thanksgiving is an appreciation shown unto God for what He has done or did while praise is appreciating God for who He is. Most people thank God only when he has done something for them but complains when things are not going on well. Most importantly God wants us to praise Him.


In praising God, we see the greatness of God. The Psalmist wanted people to be excited about the LORD (Yahweh). He wanted all the earth to greet the LORD with a roar of admiration and joy. Whether situation is pleasant or unpleasant, things are going on well or not, God expects our praise from time to time. We are expected as children of God to grow from being an infant in faith to a mature Christian just like Habakkuk says although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labour of the olive shall fail and the field shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Hab. 1:1-18.

  2. No matter what I am passing through help me to praise you at all times

  3. Give me the garment of praise and take away garment of shame, in Jesus name.

  4. May the church of God never cease to praise you in Jesus name.
