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 put my faith in the Lord, He is increasing me more and more.
He is restoring all things to me. I can give Him His tithe and live under an open heaven.
The thief may rob from me, but he cannot keep my wealth.
God will get all my goods back plus a seven fold return, I am blessed of the Lord.
