Today’s 333 Devotional: “A Praise-Filled Heart”
The idea of praising God for who He is, the Almighty God, Creator, Deliverer, Redeemer, Restorer, and
Savior should be the top priority for all Christians.
To praise the Lord is to call attention to His majesty and glory. As expressions of praise we bless, exalt, glorify, magnify, and oh, by the way, thanking Him as well.
In fact, it’s God’s breath in our lungs that gives us physical and spiritual life, so we should pour out our praise to God.
The prophet Isaiah said we are to come together to proclaim His praise amongst the congregation (Isaiah 43:21). And in the future, this is exactly what we’ll be doing in heaven, singing praises to the Lord (Revelation 4:11; 5:12-14; 7:12).
Psalm 33:1 says, “Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.”
Praising God should actually be in everything we do. The Apostle Paul addresses this in his letter to the Corinthians church and to their lack of understanding.
Paul said, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,” Paul said, “Do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
But King David in Psalm 138:1-2 brings out the ultimate expression of praise.
“I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praises to You. I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; for You have magnified Your word above all Your name.” (Psalm 138:1-2)
