Praise is a Lifestyle [Part 2]

7th AUGUST 2020

Christ for Youth International

From the Part 1 of this devotional, we saw how the Jews have inculcated the praise of the LORD into their culture and also got to understand what “Hallelujah” means. A lifestyle can be said to be a pattern of behaviour one has become accustomed to as a matter of habit. When praise becomes a habit it simply means it is an integral part of a person’s life so much so that it can be thought of as a default setting.

Our opening scripture entreats us to offer up constantly and at all times a sacrifice of praise to God. However, we can attest to the common truth that life doesn’t always hand to us, on a silver platter, “praiseworthy” circumstances.

Yet, it is possible to give praise to God at all times and in all circumstances. The second part of Hebrews 13:15 shows us how. For praise to become an attitude we must learn to thankfully acknowledge God for who He is in our lives and seek to glorify Him always.

A thankful heart brings us to a place of rest in God’s faithfulness even when we can’t understand His ways.

A lifestyle of praise starts from within and is independent of external happenings. A grateful heart is always accompanied by lips that constantly sing God’s praises.
