Inviting Praise Into Your Day

Do you praise God throughout the day? I exercise praise, worship, prayer, meditation of the Bible and practicing His Word. Just like when we exercise, we make it a routine and a habit. I love to walk daily and also apply myself to spiritual principles. This didn’t happen overnight. It was a habit that I’ve developed.

 What happens when we praise God? First, we are blessed to enter into His presence. When we walk in His presence then we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. When we choose to praise God, we begin to experience fullness of joy (Psalms 16:11). We begin to see His power at work, and we realize He can “supply all [our] needs (Phil. 4:19). Our trust in Him grows stronger. Our faith rises. Our countenance and attitudes change. All of a sudden, we are living in a supernatural realm. We are no longer giving in to, our desires; we are no longer trusting in our wisdom.

 Praises to God raises us to a higher level in the Spirit. Satan hates worship, and he cannot be in the presence of a Christian who is praising God. Satan has to flee. When we learn the power of praise, we will continue in it because we will discover the joy that God gives to us. We can choose to praise God continually by making a conscience effort to do this daily. God longs to hear our praises to Him.

 

“Lord I choose to continually bless You at all times regardless of what trials I am experiencing. I am going to praise You in the good times and the challenging times of my life. Your praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

 

For His Glory
