“Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.”
We that have been saved, not only have our sins forgiven, but we also have been given so many blessings to go along with salvation!
“Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.”
We truly have a right to Praise the Lord!
David was a Praiser. One reason I believe David spent so much time praising and worshipping God was because he had a true understanding and revelation of the grace and mercy of God. David seemed to have an understanding of the power of the Blood before there ever was a Calvary!
When David disobeyed God, and sinned, according to the law he should have been stoned! But he would turn to God and repent and then he would begin to praise and bless the name of the Lord.
When he couldn’t get to the temple or when he couldn’t get to the altar, or the priests, because Saul had closed the temples and killed many of the priests. David would reach out, in the dark of night, and grab an ephod or something else that reminded him of God, and began to praise and worship God. He knew if he could get the attention of God, if he could get God on his side then “everything would be alright!” He knew as long as God was on his side that even Saul with all of his mighty army couldn’t destroy him! That is one reason why he could praise God even during the hard times when he was running for his life from King Saul.
David was fervent in his praise and worship! He was reckless in his praise! In fact, when David would praise the Lord, he would praise Him with his whole heart!
“Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.”
Today most Christians don’t know how to praise God with their whole heart. Many Christians are afraid of what they might look like or what people might think about them. Who cares what people think about you? Many of the people who will talk about you don’t even like you, so why should you care what they think about you?
Besides that, nobody knows like you know what the Lord has done for you. Behind your praise is a story. Behind your shout is a testimony!
You might say, “What if I am not in the spirit?” Why do you think you have to be in the spirit to be a Praiser? Are you in the spirit when you go to Wal-Mart? Are you in the spirit when you go to the grocery store? Are you in the spirit when you go the golf course, or when you go on a fishing trip? You don’
