“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips; giving thanks to his name.” Hebrews 13:15
I would like to make it clear here that we are not forced to render praises to God.
It is our profound duty to reverence God in every aspect of our lives. By acknowledging Him through the fruits of our lips, it does not just mean praising Him alone. It equally means through testifying of His works in our lives to others, through our constant acknowledgment of His existence, through our sincere gratitude for what He’s continually doing for us.
We are required to praise God every second of our lives because by doing this, we not only show that we appreciate all that God has been doing for us but that we truly love Him.
The verse mean do not stop praising God. No matter where you are, whether at work, on the street, in a meeting, at your home, on your bed, in the church, with your kids and spouse, you must keep on praising God.
You don’t have to open your mouth widely and let the entire world or those around you be aware that you are praising God. You can do that in your heart. Silence praises is more genuine and deeper than open ones.
Praising God further develops your stands in God so much that you just can’t help it but to keep on walking in the way of a true Christian. Also praising God gives you more wisdom and understanding that are beyond your wildest imagination.
Another great benefit of praising God continually is that your praises touch God’s heart dearly that He will be forced to act on your behalf in your issues of life.
God loves you to praise Him. By just saying ‘God, I thank you for my life’ is not a waste but a sincere confession from you that you really are grateful to be alive, to be who you are, and for where you are going in the future.
Finally, when you praise God, you are doing the best of all, and that is, you are securing your future!
