Praise the Lord!

Psalm 113 (AMP)

1 Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord!
2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forever
3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of it and from east to west, the name of the Lord is to be praised!
4 The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens!
5 Who is like the Lord our God, Who has His seat on high,
6 Who humbles Himself to regard the heavens and the earth!
7 [The Lord] raises the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap and the dung hill,
8 That He may seat them with princes, even with the princes of His people.
9 He makes the barren woman to be a homemaker and a joyful mother of [spiritual] children. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

Praise Him

31 03 2015



Psalm 100:4 – This shows you that you can keep on going into

God and enter His presence. Enter His gates with

thanksgiving. That’s why I begin my prayers with thanking

God for who He is and what He’s done for me. That allows

me to walk onto His property. The gate is at the end of the

driveway at the road. I am now onto His property. But the

house up ahead. How do I get into the house? Enter His

courts with praise. Keep on praising Him. Tell Him you love

Him. You will get into the house…into His courts. There is

nothing like it. You can sense that you have gone right into

the throne room. You now have His complete attention. The

love you feel is awesome. I encourage you to get into this

place today. But let me tell you, it takes awhile. While you

are praising, you are purging yourself of you. It’s all about

Him. Praise Him today.

The Sacrifice of Praise

28 03 2015


Let us offer the sacrifice of praise. Are there times you just

don’t feel like praising God? If we are honest with ourselves,

we can all say YES. That is when it is a sacrifice. Are you

depressed, discouraged, down-trodden? Offer up the

sacrifice of praise. There is just something about praising

God when you are not in the mood to. Praise Him for Who

He is and what He has done for you. Yes, it is done forcefully

at first. You begin with the choice that you are going to

praise Him. After awhile, though, something happens on the

inside of you. You begin to want to praise Him. Sing to Him.

It doesn’t have to be perfect; He just wants you to do it. You

begin to feel better on the inside. Your problems don’t seem

to be so big while you are doing it. You are having a personal

time with your Father God. There is nothing better than this.

So let’s go out today and give Him the sacrifice of praise.



Praise Him

I would like to encourage you today to do what this verse

says: PRAISE. Praise God for who He is. Thank Jesus for

dying for you and sending His Holy Spirit. There are so

many things to thank Him for. Just look around you. He

made everything you see. The biggest praise has always been

to Jesus for sacrificing His life so I could have eternal life

with Him. That is so mind-boggling. Puts me in complete

awe. It doesn’t matter what you are going through, God is

stable. He helps you throughout your day in ways you don’t

even realize. He made you so perfectly, that your body

knows exactly how to work to keep you alive. We surely

couldn’t do that! So, let’s give all the praise that He deserves


Sacrifice of Praise

27 03 2013

Let us offer the sacrifice of praise unto God CONTINUALLY! 

Continually means all the time.  Yes, there are times that you just plain don’t feel like it.  But it doesn’t go by feelings.  We praise Him because of Who He is and what He has done for us.  What better reason than that?  Yes, I know the devil, our adversary, tries to have us go by our feelings.  “I just don’t feel like it right now”…even though you are in the worship service at church.  Everyone else is doing it, but you don’t feel like it.  The cares of your life weigh upon you.  That’s where the sacrifice of praise comes in.  And you know…God seems to cherish those moments more than when you feel like it.  You are sacrificing to thank Him for Who He is.  He loves it!  And when you do, be ready to be showered in love…His Love. 

So, my challenge to you today, is to sacrifice praise unto God.  Try it!
