“He [is] thy praise, and he [is] thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.”
“And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.”
Brothers and Sisters even though the above Scriptures deal with Israel, they are and Must be Consecrated into your Every Day Lives. How many times a Day, a Week, a Month and a Year do you Remember what Jesus has done for you? How many of you Name The Name Of Jesus in Your Actions, Your Work, Society, Social Media that All May Know? Every day I Praise Jesus BY Name, every morning before I start anything, Jesus is First, Jesus is Praised. See, I Understand that I have a Debt that can never, ever be paid back, Jesus receives Praise just in the simple fact, that He Died, took upon Himself MY Punishment and BY His Love, I am Forgiven, I will Go To Heaven All Because Of Jesus, He Deserves My Praise!
Brothers and Sisters we must Learn to Praise Jesus in all aspects whether we Understand The Why things happen. Jesus allows things to happen because they must before He comes to get His Bride, The Church, The Blood Bought!! This means whether it be Life or Death, whether I am Rich or Poor, if I have Anything, it does not matter, Jesus is still to be Praised! Even in Disastrous Sickness and Storms!! If I truly Believe that Jesus Is Lord, beyond Savior, then My Faith MUST be Manifested to All that they may see the Great Works He has done in me, else they will know nothing of Jesus, except by name alone.
“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”
I know it is hard to Praise Jesus when all you see is not Praise Worthy, but you Must look at things through His Eyes, His Plan. There are many, many things that Must Come To Pass before Jesus returns and that includes everything that touches Our Lives. For our Brother Paul has shown us that no matter what Life Brings, Jesus is Always Worthy Of Praise!
“22 Are they Hebrews? so [am] I. Are they Israelites? so [am] I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so [am] I. 23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I [am] more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. 24 Of the Jews five times received I forty [stripes] save one. 25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26 [In] journeyings often, [in] perils of waters, [in] perils of robbers, [in] perils by [mine own] countrymen, [in] perils by the heathen, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false brethren; 27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. 29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?”
2 Corinthians 11:22-29
In all these things that Paul Suffered he Learned, HE Learned, to Praise Jesus, that in his sufferings Jesus would be Gloried, that Jesus would be Praised! We, Church, Blood Bought, for the most part have it easy. Now there are those this day that suffer as being The Church, who give Praise to Jesus In Their Suffering, even unto Death! But most of us, are not Persecuted On Jesus Behalf, but a time is coming that we will be, are you ready ?
Brothers and Sisters, the Praise Of Jesus is not in what we have, what we know, but is in All Things We Are The Testimony of His Life, Death and Resurrection. For Our Praise is not molded with things that we See, but in those things that we Do Not See. Praise To Jesus is a Choice, a Honor it is Not Mandated, but should be, that we Love Jesus so much that to Honor Him, to Praise Him is the very least we can do.
King David was so full of Joy, so full of Praise that he danced, only girded, before God, making him look crazy before the people, but yet The Father said he was a Man After God’s Heart!
“And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the [son] of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.”
“But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him [to be] captain over his people, because thou hast not kept [that] which the LORD commanded thee.”
1 Samuel 13:14
“And David danced before the LORD with all [his] might; and David [was] girded with a linen ephod.”
2 Samuel 6:14
To get to this place, a Completely Surrendered Life, a Life After Jesus Heart has to be accomplished in one’s self. Praise Ye The Lord Jesus in All Manor, All Conversations, All Works, All Things Under Heaven, let The Name Of Jesus Be Praised!!!
Even in all things that are considered small, Praise Jesus! I, during my Life, have Praised Jesus for a Small Breeze as I was working in the hot sun, I have Praised Jesus for the creation of a Beautiful Flower, for a Bird, for the ability to do as He has Called Me to do, even in heart ache, for the Rain even the Storms, the Lightning. Praise is the Ability to Recognize Jesus in All Things, meaning, that because I Praise Jesus in these things that seem small, to Jesus it is Honor Received and He Is Gloried By Me!
Now, Understand this, are All Things worthy to Praise Jesus In or even For, NO, but let The Holy Spirit bring Understanding to those things that are! There is much Evil in this World and in those things there is No Praise To Jesus, except, that even as He Spoke, these things Must Come To Pass, so, in that, I Praise Jesus in His Coming!
Praise starts with The Heart and is an Outward Manifestation. We are to Love Jesus with All Of Our Hearts, All Of Our Strength, All Of Our Minds and In All Of Our Soul, the measure of Your Love For Jesus is in Your Praise.
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment.”
“I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.”
Praise Jesus for your; Spouse, for your Children, Praise Jesus for His Enlightenment, for His Direction, for His Protection, for The Holy Spirit that Jesus has sent, Praise Jesus for Understanding and With Out Understanding! CURSE NOT those things which you do not Understand! When something happens that should not of, run not to the Flesh, but to The Spirit that you might find Praise To Jesus in it.
Do you know, that asking for Forgiveness for your wrong doing, is a Praise To Jesus? For the Praise is, that you recognize your sin before Jesus, Glorifying His Name in The Forgiveness that you have found In Him.
Praise can be in the instruments of music or even beating an object that makes a sound. Praise can be in the Tears that you shed for Joy or even in sadness, if all is Directed To Jesus. Praise can be in the dance, if it is In The Joy Of Jesus that you do it, or in your walk in righteous In Jesus. Praise has No Boundaries! It should have No Ending!
Each day we have on Earth, is one more day for Jesus to Receive Praise, take advantage of that, desire to Praise Jesus in All Things.
“To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.”
“And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness [and]
of thy praise all the day long.”
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
