Praising God

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. (Hebrews 13:15)

C. S. Lewis once said, “Praise is inner health made audible.” If you are having a difficult time praising God in your particular situation, there is a good chance you have some darkness on the inside that you have failed to handle.

God wants to remove that darkness in your life, and He wants you to learn what it means to flow with the power of His presence in your life.  Praise shows you what is on the inside. If you can’t seem to praise God, you probably have some unconfessed sin.

Life is hard enough, even when we have the Lord by our side through it all. If you fail to deal with the darkness and unconfessed sin in your life, you will feel more alone and isolated from God. When God feels far away, it can be extremely difficult to have a heart full of praise, worship, and gratitude. Don’t waste another second harboring the bitterness, anger, and darkness that comes with your sin. Confess and repent to your Father and He will forgive you.

Once you do that, you will find it is much easier to praise the Lord, because you are in right standing with the Father. Nothing is more powerful than being aligned with the Spirit of God. I pray you are properly aligned with God. If not, I pray you can soon get there.
