TOPIC: FEARFUL PRAISE AS A LIFESTYLE
Scripture :Isaiah 43: 21. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
Beloved I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Fearful praise is a praise that provokes heaven’s attention because when God is standing at attention everything in heaven is also standing at attention. Today, we shall be considering fearful praise as a life style.
What do we mean by lifestyle?
We mean a particular way of living! That speaks of culture. To make praise a lifestyles is to make praise your way of life, it means let it become a culture to you.
Why should I practice fearful praise as a lifestyle?
1. It is because that is part of my purpose of existence here on earth;
Isaiah 43: 21. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
Beloved, It is only a manufacturer of a product that can determine the purpose of its product.
Our Maker is our God and He said ‘I made you to show forth my praise ‘! In other words, you were created to praise God. This is why the Bible said:
Revelation 4: 11. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Observed from this scripture that all things were created that includes you! You may say well it was my mother that gave birth to me but forgot that some one created your mother’s womb that provided accomodations for your formation and development. He watches over you in your mother’s womb and that person is God Almighty, your Creator. The Bible said:
Psalm 139: 13. For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Observed from this scripture (PS.139:14). Your purpose was part of your design! This is where many people missed it. You were not created to pursue ambition or other things but to give God pleasure. However, it takes Light or insight or revelation to live a praiseful life.
Men of light or insight are men that live practically on praise. Revelation is the sponsor of outstanding results in this kingdom. If you must get results on your praise, then there is a certain degree of light or understanding you must have on the subject of praise. It is only men of understanding that wake up in the morning just to praise God and as such making fearful praise as a life style.
Beloved, you were created by God for the purpose of praising Him! Praising God was ordained to be your lifestyle on daily basis.
Therefore, if you must fulfil your purpose under heaven, then praise to your Maker is inevitable. In praises, you acknowledge your Maker and also fulfill destiny at the same time.
How do you praise God as a lifestyle?
1. By singing with all kinds of musical instruments such as flutes, trumpet, piano/keyboard, saxophone etc
Psalm 147: 7. Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
In the absence of instruments or in addition to musical instruments we do it by singing with our mouth:
Psalm 89: 1. I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
So Learn to wake up everyday to give God quality praises as you open your mouth and sing His praise to God. This is not a matter of I don’t have a good voice, use the one God has given you to sing His praise.
2. By clapping with a shout;
Psalm 47: 1. O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! Make hay while the sun shines. If you are not yet born again, give your heart to Jesus today.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord help me to understand my purpose in praising you daily in Jesus name.
– I decree restoration of all your losses in Jesus name.
– May you experience a wave of glory as the year comes to an end in the name of Jesus.
