Today we are going to talk about Praise. We are going to talk about Praising God, why we praise God – and why he Wants our puny praise and about who really benefits from it.
“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”
Psalm 22:3(KJV) “Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel (ESV)”
HE inhabits the praises of His people – He is “enthroned” on the praises of His people. To inhabit is to LIVE in, to enthrone is to give a position of AUTHORITY. In our praise – our spoken praise – God lives on Earth – He is brought into this realm, into your situation – Alive and filled with power. He is also enthroned – given Authority. This is key because in the absence of praise Who has been given “authority” here on earth? (answer: Satan).
