We have been working with children for years and years. They can teach you as much as you teach them. One of the things we have learned is that they thrive on praise. They love to be congratulated and told when they have done good. Praise must be genuine, they have to earn it. Every kid is capable of doing something praise-worthy. They beam with joy when they are praised. You can see it in their little faces they want to do more.
Psalms 18:3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, so I will be saved from my enemies.
The Lord is worthy of all our praise, no one loves us like our Lord. No one gave a greater sacrifice than Jesus. I think too many Christians tap into God only when they have a problem or they just need Him, but then there are the radicals who walk around praising the Lord all day long. If He is in the heart surely He can be on our lips. I believe God needs to be assured that we are grateful to Him for His sacrifice.
When the event of the cross becomes a revelation praise flows from the heart like water out of a spring. While you stand praising your Lord, He is about the business of saving you from your enemies. God thrives on the praise of His people. He knew His people believe and are grateful.
Praise the Lord.
I am a servant of the most high God,
I am submitted to His authority.
I give the devil no place,
so he must flee from me.
Father has given me the Name,
a Name the devil must bow to.
The Name of Jesus has made me free.
He has made me a new creature,
He has put the devil under my authority.
Matthew 9:37 Jesus said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest, that He will send out laborers into His harvest.”
