“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again”.— Luke 6:38
Let God be praised individually and corporately, for He is good. He deserves our praises because He is our Maker, Redeemer, Provider, Healer, and Helper in times of need. However, our praises must be godly or biblical. Charles H. Spurgeon says, “I am afraid that where organs, choirs, and singing men and women are left to do the praise of the congregation, men’s minds are more occupied with the due performance of the music than with the Lord, who alone must be praised.” Indeed, biblical praise is not for entertainment.
Our text talks about the pattern of biblical praise. It must be unto the Lord alone. As in prayer, we should not praise to be heard and commended by men. Our praise should be offered from a pure heart and with clean hands to God as a sacrifice. As a result, God honors it and turns our negative situations around. Also praise God after your miracles. Hear Moses after crossing the Red Sea, “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”
