Have you praised Him today?
The Him I am referring to is Jesus. Have you stopped today and just praised Him? Thanked Him?
Jesus deserves our praise all the time and not just as an after thought. You know how it is when something good happens and we say “I better praise Jesus for this”….we all have done this and we all do this. What would our lives look like if we continually praised Him? I believe we would be a whole lot happier.
We were created by God to worship Him and worship is praising and thanking Him. Don’t just praise Him on Sundays; praise Him every day for everything.
In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever. Selah Psalms 44:8
If we don’t praise Him,God says that rocks would cry out; check it out:
37 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: 38 “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” 40 “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
Luke 19:37-40 (NIV)
We praise Him everyday because of His mercy we who believe in Him have eternal life. This is why we Praise Him.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
So back to our original question: Have you praised Him today?
Keep it real
