Constant Praise
Through Him then, let us continually offer up
a sacrifice of praise to God, that is,
the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.
Hebrews 13:15 NASB

Sometimes, we allow ourselves to become so preoccupied with the demands of daily life that we forget to say “Thank You” to the Giver of all good gifts. But the Bible makes it clear: it pays to praise God.

Worship and praise should be a part of everything we do. Otherwise, we quickly lose perspective as we fall prey to the demands of the moment.

Do you sincerely desire to be a worthy servant of the One who has given you eternal love and eternal life? Then praise Him for who He is and for what He has done for you. Praise Him all day long, every day, for as long as you live . . . and then for all eternity.

Maintaining a focus on God will take our praise to heights that nothing else can. - Jeff Walling, 100 Days of Prayer

Worship is an act which develops feelings for God, not a feeling for God which is expressed in an act of worship. When we obey the command to praise God in worship, our deep, essential need to be in relationship with God is nurtured. - Eugene Peterson

Be not afraid of saying too much in the praises of God; all the danger is of saying too little. - Matthew Henry

Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. - Thomas Ken

Today’s Prayer
Heavenly Father, I come to You today with hope in my heart and praise on my lips. I place my trust in You, dear Lord, knowing that with You as my Protector, I have nothing to fear. I thank You, Lord, for Your grace, for Your love, and for Your Son. Amen
