Praising God – The First Thing!

Do you know that praising God is the best thing to do first before anything else? Praising God makes every circumstance of our lives complete, essential, and eminently worthwhile.

Webster defines the word praise as to say good things about and it is synonymous to words such as admire, commend, extol, honor, and worship. A definition of Christian praise is the joyful thanking and adoring of God, the celebration of His goodness and grace.1 This simply implies that the act of praising is rightfully due to God alone.

Praising God – Why?
Why is praising God important? The reasons are countless. First, God deserves to be praised and He is worthy to receive our praise:

  • “For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods” (Psalm 96:4).
  • “Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom” (Psalm 145:3).
  • “I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies” (2 Samuel 22:4).
  • “You are worthy, our LORD and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being” (Revelation 4:11).
