Pattern Of Biblical Praise

Key Verse

“Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant” (Psalms 135:3).

Text — Psalm 135:1-5


God is to be praised and worshipped for He made the whole world in His power, wisdom, and infinite love. He also does innumerable miracles. Moses led Israel to praise God on seeing His acts at the Red Sea (Exodus 15:1-19). Before the battle with Moab and the allied nations, Jehoshaphat led Judah to praise the holiness and beauty of God, and the enemies were defeated. Biblical praise consisted of solemn sounds and words of adoration to God. The praise did not deliberately attract attention to the singers as it is done in some assemblies today. Hence Isaac Watts said, “The singing of God’s praise is the part of worship most closely related to heaven, but its performance among us is the worst on earth.”

Many gospel singers, both on television and in Christian assemblies, dance and comport themselves as worldly glory chasers rather than praising God. Biblical praise is pleasant to the ears and enlightens the soul with inspiring lyrics. When Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises, prison doors opened and prisoners’ bands were loosed. Be expectant after praising God.


Biblical praise is pleasant


God deserves and demands our praises.

Prayer for today

O my God, teach me to be thankful, in Jesus’ name.
