Tell of His Glory

“Sing to the Lord, all the earth; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day. Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; He also is to be feared above all gods”  (1 Chron. 16:23-25).  

We were created for praise! Singing, shouting and testifying to the goodness of God, shapes how we see everything. As Children of God, we have access to heavenly treasures and an open invitation to all the benefits of our Father’s House. However, it is only received by faith… a faith that seeks God as the Great Reward in life.

Freedom to Transform Reality:

Salvation is more than freedom from sin, its also the means to our freedom of expression. Praise is the overflow of the blessed life… day after day the righteous declare the greatness of God and night unto night their voices can be heard in spite of the difficulties along the way. Why? Because praise shifts the atmosphere and allows for the angelic winds of heaven (Heb. 1:7). Praise turns the mourning into dancing and the sorrows into joy. Its not just about putting on a garment of praise; its believing that God is faithful, that breaks the spirit of heaviness (Isa. 61:3). Its knowing that “in Christ” things can be transformed; old things can pass away and all things made new (2 Cor. 5:17). I know, He is worthy of my praise! 

Glory and Splendor:

We are living in times that test a believer’s fervency. I want to be found standing in God’s Glory and speaking of His radiant splendor all of my days.  Like Shadrack, Meshack and Abebnego, I want to stand in the fiery furnace with a smile on my face. I want to challenge my Goliaths and hold the ground that God has promised me. These are the days that call for extravagant worshippers to arise and lead with radical obedience. 

We must reflect His Glory as lights in a dark place. Though darkness would cover the Earth and deep darkness the people, there is a King, the Lord Stong and Mighty who will rise over us. His Glory shall be seen upon our faces and heard through our voices (Isa. 60:1-2). For it is our destiny to show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of the darkness and into His marvelous light (1 Pet. 2:9). We are the chosen, the royal and the holy; the special people who know the mercy and continually walk in the power of the Living God.

“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His Name.” (Heb. 13:15) Can I get a witness?
