As I write this book, we take you on a journey together and walk with me. The thinking process as I walk with faith, and I went to as we discover that the people meaning of thanksgiving and PRAISE can cause the finished work of JESUS to be manifested in this physical world. We can see it and touch it! There it is! (see Psalm 92:1). We believe it and receive the finished work of JESUS. It’s done, deal! So, we ask, I know it’s good to that. It’s a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord of Most High. It’s also a good thing to sing Praises. Is there any wrong with it? Why do we have to PRAISE? What’s the matter with me?
Let us go to Psalm 22:3, But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. When you pray, you come into God’s Presence. When you PRAISE before Him, He comes into yours! He INHABITS THE PRAISES OF HIS HIS PEOPLE (See Psalm 8 & 9).
Suppose you read that verse, where Praises are offered. God will show up. Thanksgiving and PRAISE God will send a representative, the invitation not turn down. The invitation that He can’t turn down. He’ll dwell in a place with thanksgiving and PRAISE. God can’t just come down to dwell; it gives you ghost bumps. He is not coming down when you feel good, and it will show up when there are circumstances and situations. If we want to make sure that God dwells where we are, if you’re praising and giving thanksgiving, you would say, right now, you want to make sure you don’t grumble, murmur, or complain, for He records the words we speak when praising on your lips. Thank Him for the BLESSINGS in your life, and PRAISE Him all day long.
There are many things to be thankful for if we decide we’re going to be people who always continue to offer up worship, thanksgiving, and PRAISE the Lord. The flesh (us) looks for things to complain about, but the Spirit searches for reasons to give God glory.
However, we should not expect just PRAISE and offer the sacrifice of PRAISE, thanksgiving, and worship to His glory name when there is a reason. It is easy to give thanks and honor if we have a reason. But then, it is not sacrificed. In other words, we should, of course, offer up PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING at all times, being mindful to thank God for all the BLESSINGS in our lives and for the favor He has shown us. So we enter into His rest.
We’re going to understand the power that’s been invested in thinking and praying to God. Let’s look at Thessalonians 5:16 say, Be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ JESUS. (NIV). He says to rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. That means 24 hours a day. Do we walk around like strange Christian proclaiming, PRAISE the Lord. Halleluyah! You’re people of prayer, and you don’t stop rejoicing, don’t stop praying, and so on. NO! God wanted you to step ahead against your enemy and his strategies. Look at verse 18, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ JESUS concerning you. In everything, give thanks. It is the will of God concerning you. As He will perfect, that is concern on you. I believe that those Word of God scriptures that go together give thanks to God in everything that concerns you. In other words, so that I can perfect what interests you.
