Let my mouth be filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all the day. (Psalm 71:8 NKJV)
This is one of my favorite prayers. Ceaseless praise is a lifestyle and an attitude, and it comes from understanding, disciple and obedience. God wants us to praise Him always. He has everything and he needs nothing from man. Idols demand for human sacrifice, blood and glory. They need it in order to pervert nature and perform magic.
God wants praise, worship and thanksgiving. He does not need it but he wants it, because He deserves it as the creator who creates out of nothing. Idols create out of human blood – He creates from nothing. He simply speaks things into existence. Can you imagine such power! He certainly deserves all the glory, all the honor, all the adoration, all the thanksgiving, praise and exaltation.
When we are caught up in ceaseless adoration, we will know the secret of knowing our great God. We will begin to experience His awesome grace.
May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
