(Psalm 147:1) “Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely”.
The Psalmist encourages the believer to praise God. He says it’s good to sing praises unto our God; thus, it’s good because praising God is good for the believer. Praising God will change our lives; praising God will change the way we think, the way we act and even the way we feel about ourselves. Praising God causes that spirit of heaviness to be lifted from our shoulders as we raise a praise to Him. Praising God is pleasant and comely for the true believer. Thus, praising God is fitting for the believer; it’s a natural part of who we are as Christians.
Praising God is to the Christians as peanuts are to peanut butter, it just fits. Praising God is to the Christian as water is to man, eventually you have to have it to sustain life, and if we don’t we die. Praising God is to the Christian as grapes are to Wine. A Christian that won’t praise God is very unnatural; a Christian that won’t praise God is someone who won’t be able to maintain a Christian life. A Christian that won’t praise God will eventually become miserable to be around. The psalmist said to praise God is comely; thus, it is an attractive thing, it is a beautiful thing to see His called out ones giving Him what He deserves and that’s our praise. So I leave you with this: When is the last time you really gave God some praise?
God Bless You
