Scripture Tells Us to Praise God
Slide 6 of 7
I’m sure we all have our own personal lists of things we can praise God for. But here are some specifics from scripture:
Praise God for his glory and might. (1 Chronicles 16:28)
Praise God for his wisdom and power. (Daniel 2:20)
Praise God for Jesus. (Ephesians 1:6)
Praise God for his unfailing love. (Isaiah 63:7)
Praise God for his peace. (1 Kings 8:56)
Praising God in Trials Is Our Warfare
The only one who does not want us to praise God is the enemy of our souls. Did you know that Satan was once a beautiful angel who fell? (Isaiah 14:12-15)
Satan is the one who wants us to look at things around us, or anything that will get our eyes off of God. So when we choose to trust God, and even go further and we praise God, the enemy is defeated. And our faith grows.
Reflect on the things God has done for you. Look up at the sky and how the earth proclaims who God is. Even the mountains and hills will break forth with singing and the trees will clap their hands (Isaiah 55:12).
Are we going to be silent, and not praise Him, while nature proclaims what we know to be true?
Praise God, our creator, our shield, the one who answers prayer, the one who heals. The one who is patient, loving, and almighty. Praise Him, our Father, and our hope. Praise God who is always worthy of praise.
