In part one, we recognized the Lord is worthy of praise. He owes us nothing, yet he continues to bless us over and over again. He does this just because of who He is, not because of anything we have done or because we deserve it. Part two mentions a couple benefits or advantages of praise.

Praise and worship elevates us into God's presence and power. Praise is the faith that brings us into His presence. When we lift up the name of Jesus through praise and worship, the Lord's presence and power flows in our midst. A change takes place in the atmosphere, causing God to move on our behalf. After all, God dwells in the atmosphere of His praise. 

Praise causes the enemy to flee. Satan knows and fears the power of Jesus. Demons tremble at the mention of His name. When you create an atmosphere of praise and the Lord dwells in the midst of praise, Satan makes a quick exit. "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." James 2:19 KJV

We know the Lord is worthy of praise, so praise Him in your own way. Voice your praise, clap your hands, dance, stomp your feet, life your hands, sing, play an instrument, etc. God delights in our outward expressions of praise. Authentic praise is humility and true devotion to the Lord from within.

"I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth." Psalm 34:1 KJV

Be blessed.


  1. Thank you for this. I have a 25 year history with migraines and just this past year decided to thank God when I got them. They haven't got any better but I am obedient to thank. Now, I am having another medical issue and this just reminded me that I should praise for that too. Not easy, but I am going to thank God now for it!

  2. Praise God for your healing. Just praise Him knowing that no matter how you're feeling, you're trusting that He HAS already healed you. Praise Him knowing things could be worse, but they aren't. The more you praise Him, the easier it will become, trust me on that one. Even if you feel pain or don't feel like praising Him, give Him a sacrificial praise.Be blessed.
