~ My Favorite Things~

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens;

Brown paper packages tied up with strings;

These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels;

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles;

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings;

These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes;

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes;

Silver-white winters that melt into springs;

These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites,

When the bee stings,

When I'm feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don't feel so bad.

• Praise began at the dawn of time

Job 38:3-7

3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Re 22:16

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Job 1:6

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to pre sent themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

• Praise continues in the Twilight of time

Re 19:1-7

1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying,

Amen; Alleluia.

5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

- Last word in Scripture is AMEN

- The last word in the Bible is a note of Praise -AMEN

- Note Scripture reading Ps. 148

- Every created thing in the universe has a capacity to Praise the Lord

- Westminster Catechism - Man's chief end is to glorify God & to enjoy Him Forever

- Your Purpose in life is to Praise God

Isaiah 43:21

This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. (KJV)

- Is this only OT teaching?

Eph 1:11-12

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

- Why is it that Praise is not constantly in our life?

- Is it because we don't know that we are to praise?

- Is it because of sin?

- Is it because we don't believe?

- Blessing comes about through Praise

- We are enriched & broadened through Praise

Ps 67:5-6

5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

Not to manipulate God

- The presence or absence or Praise is the pivotal in any situation - Sometimes Life does not make any sense
