The Thunderous Sound of Praise!
As we come to the close of our 100 Days Praise Challenge, we want to thank w2wsoul.com andÂ those who participated, gave praise shout outs, and shared their artwork. We continue to give God thanks and praise for the things he has done in our lives, because we really and truly cannot stop giving praise to God. Praise should be a part of our daily lives and should encompass all that we do. Living a life that is surrendered totally to Christ is our ultimate offering of praise.
Our Praise Challenge took us through many books in the Bible and we learnt that praise can take many forms for the believer. Singing songs and hymns, clapping our hands, even jumping for joyâ€¦the list is endless. We can give glory and praise to our God with the use of our physical bodies, with our hearts and minds, and with our talents and deeds. There are many ways to praise God! No matter how you praise and worship God, it should result in an awe of God’s power, love, and grace for all of us! He is worthy to be praised.
But you are a chosen people, a royal
priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to
God, that you may declare the praises of him
who called you out of darkness into his
wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
We close off our 100 Days session with a scripture from the last book of the Bible, Revelation 19:6-7
Then I heard what sounded like a great
multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and
like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
If you have ever been to a packed stadium of cheering fans, you will have a small idea of how that great mass of people sounded when they lifted their voice in praise. What a great joy it is to know that we will one day be a part of that great multitude, a multitude so great that when we give praise, it will sound like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder! “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
