(Psalms 150, Malachi 1:6-14, Isaiah 42:8-12, Revelation 4:1-11, Psalms 136)

The Lord inhabits the praise of His children (Psalms 22:3). We receive as we ask from Him. The only thing He asks from us is praise. We should freely give it to Him. He wants our praise not because He is in dire need of it. He asks for it because He loves us and cherishes our genuine praise. It is a great privilege given to us that among the praise of all creations and of uncountable numbers of angels, He still demands our praise.

So, a life of praise to God is the greatest gratitude we can offer Him. Such life is filled with:
1) Talking about His praise
2) Singing about His praise
3) Dancing for His praise
4) Testifying about His goodness to others
5) Doing praise feasts ascribed to His name
6) Living as it pleases Him
7) Participating in things that speaks about His praise
8) Being grateful for all He gives you, nothing is too small to thank the Lord for.
9) Knowing that all we are and have is given to us by Him

In the contrary, most time,
1) we deny Him His praise.
2) we ignore the fact that He is to be praised
3) we covet/steal (“rob”) Him of His praise
4) we discourage others from praising God
5) we give Him “cheap” praise that we cannot accept (Malachi 1:8).

If we can repent of all these today, the Lord will be very delighted in us. Let us, therefore, live for his praise, like never before. Abraham lived this type of life. King David lived this type of life. The apostles lived it – a life of praise to the Lord. Amen!
