Give God a Shout of Praise With Gladness
Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Psalms 100:1 (NKJV)
To PRAISE God is to lay everything aside that hinders us and make a joyful noise unto the Lord. God doesn’t care if we sing or speak as long as we are opening our mouths and giving him praise with a cheerful and glad heart. What God is concerned with is the attitude of our hearts when we come to Him. He wants us to serve Him with gladness – not by obligation nor by forcing, - He wants us to give Him our praise willingly.
So when it comes to praising God we need to have an attitude of gratitude and praise towards Him because time and time again He has shown and proven His faithfulness. God is God above all. He is mighty in all his ways. He is the one that deserves all the praise.
Therefore always remember that praise is not a feeling. It is an expression of faith toward a God of mercy, goodness, and truth. When we praise, the feelings come because we again remember that we are His and He is ours.
May God bless you all!
