Topic: Benefits of Praise and Worship
“Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”
Praise refocuses our minds on God and connects our hearts with His. It fosters our awareness of God’s presence with us. Praise pushes the worries of this life into the background. Praise reminds us of who God is and what He has done.
Also, Praise recalls God’s past provision, thus strengthening our hope in His future deliverance. Praise voices our dependence on God, relieving our fears. It helps develop an eternal perspective, paving the way for God’s peace. Moreover, it opens our hearts to receive God’s joy and fulfills the purpose for which we were created, bringing fulfillment.
As God’s people, we are obligated to praise Him. But this obligation is not a burden. Instead, praise ushers us into the presence of our Burden Bearer. No one who rejoices in God will ever be disappointed. He hears our praise. He is our Deliverer and our Savior.
Declare His Praises, praying Exodus 15, that He is your strength and salvation.
