Praising God

It’s so important to remember to praise God everyday! After all; he truly deserves it! The bible instructs us to ‘…continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God’ (Hebrews 13:15) and to ‘rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks'' (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). God loves to hear us praise him and it is what he asks of us!

Worshiping God can be hard when we are feeling sad or ill, but we shouldn’t just worship when we feel like it! Try praising God for who he is, rather than just what he has done for you. Your conditions and mood may change, but God is everlasting and unchangeable.

There are so many benefits of praising. It gives us indescribable peace and joy, and all our troubles become so small! God also promises to bless all who worship him.

If all those reasons aren't good enough…this one will be. We are so, so small and unholy. Our God is so, so big and amazingly holy! But he loves us and he always will! Now, I don’t know about you but that is a good enough reason as any to make me praise the Lord!!!

  5. Thanks for this kind reminder. We always pray to God in times of trouble, but many a time we forget to be grateful and praise him when things are great :) Merry Christmas to you!
