TOPIC: Praise Is Comely.

Text:  1 Chronicles 16:13-36 (KJV)

13 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

14 He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

15 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;

16 Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;

17 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

18 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;

19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

20 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;

21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

23 Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.

24 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.

25 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.

26 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

27 Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

28 Give unto the Lord, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

29 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The Lord reigneth.

32 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.

33 Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the Lord, because he cometh to judge the earth.

34 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.

36 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the Lord.

KEY VERSE: “O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.” – (1 Chronicles 16:34)

DAILY MANNA FOR TODAY

There is a direct relationship between heartfelt praise and supernatural intervention. The Scriptures are replete with such proven examples. As Jehoshaphat praised the Lord, the confederacy of enemies against his people scattered. Paul and Silas sang praises and prison doors were opened and their bonds were loosed. For those who praise the Lord from truly transformed hearts, God often responds with immediacy. Real praise brings the power of God to bear on our world.

David did not praise God just because it caught his fancy. His praise was borne out of an intimate relationship with God, a keen awareness of His majesty and His great deeds. He acknowledged God as the great Judge, covenant-Keeper, Defender and Protector. He praised Him for daily salvation, marvellous works among all nations, mercy, His greatness and goodness. He invites the earth to sing unto the Lord, declare His glory and strength; give unto Him offering, fear and worship in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29,30).

Praising and singing to God is a duty believers are called to engage in as His redeemed. We praise God for His incomparability to other gods, His goodness, gift of salvation, answer to prayers, good health, healing, deliverances, provision, protection, promotion and many unmerited mercies.

Praises ignite God’s power. Real and acceptable praises emanate from a saved life and pure heart. Do you find it difficult sustaining your praises and thanksgiving before the Lord? Then seek a relationship with the Lord for a walk in the Spirit that compels an instinctive praise and thanksgiving, even in the face of challenges. Only then will He give you a heart of praise and thanksgiving, and cause you to enjoy His protection today and beyond.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Real praises ignite the power of God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 105-106
