Praise helps you remember who you are and who God is. Praise enlist God’s protection. When you praise God for answers to your prayers before you see them.
It is important to praise God for your answers before you see them.
1. PRAISE HELPS YOU SENSE GOD’S PRESENCE: God is always present whether you sense it or not. Sometimes we don’t feel his presence, but that’s because we have moved away from him. He has not. When you don’t feel God’s presence is when you need to praise Him the most. It is easier to act your way into a feeling than feel you way into an action. In fact, maturity is when we do what’s right whether we feel like or not. “Surely the righteous will praise your name, and the upright will live in your presence” Ps. 140:13.
2. PRAISE ENLARGES YOUR PERCEPTION OF GOD: When we look at something with a magnifying glass, through praise it gets bigger. When God gets bigger, our problems get smaller. “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.” Ps. 69:30.
3. PRAISE HELPS US REMEMBER GOD’S BLESSING: Often when we are thinking about a big problem, it’s all we can thing about. E.g. when you have a fight with your spouse, it tends to become everything you think about. But praise will correct the imbalance. It will remind you that not everything in your life is bad. Ps. 105.
4. PRAISE ENLIST GOD’S PROTECTION: When you praise God for an answer to your prayer before it happens, that’s faith and that’s when God begin to fight for you. 2 Chron. 20, we read about three enemy nations who ganged up on Israel. The only chance Israel had was for God to miraculously fight battle for them. So, King Jehoshaphat organised an unusual battle plan. He put a choir in front of the army as they marched into battle.
5. PRAISE BREAKS CHAINS AND OPENS DOORS: You or your members probably have certain things holding you back you might feel struck, like nothing has changed in your life for the better. It sounds odd, but there in on better time for you to thank God than right now. The case of Paul and Silas in the prison, in the middle of the night, the two decided to have a praise session, as they praised God, the bible says. Act 16:26
