How would you define praise?
When it comes down to real life, what is it really?
Some of my thoughts…
I think praise is admitting/confessing/declaring something that is already true. It is seeing, agreeing, and responding to something valuable. Praising God is seeing something worthy in Him and telling Him that truth. For me, part of praise is closely linked with gratitude. Oh how I am grateful for God pulling me out of the pit. Thank You Lord for your generous mercy that saved my life. You are so good to me Lord.
The word appraisal came to mind the other day. To attribute value.
The other side of praise is just seeing His awesomeness and worshipping in wonder.
I want to recognize His goodness to me and wonder at His majesty.
Throughout my schedule, I want to see Him in all things and praise Him for who He is.
