Bring praise to the Creator

Often people moan about their life. It is as if they do not like to be here on this world. Many think the grass is greener somewhere else.

We have our good and our bad days on this earth. Some days we like it here very much, other days we hate it. Most of us do have questions why we are here and what life is all about. Many also wonder how they came about and what the reason of all the things that happen are. Lots of people only think of God when something goes wrong and than they question Him. It is not that God is silent when bad things happen here or when justice appears not to be meted out on our terms for the terrors of this world. It is also not God who created the terrors of this world. People do forget that most of the difficulties which come over them are a result of them leaving God, not listening to His ordinances. Most people have separated themselves  from the Creator, Jehovah God.

The Creator has always walked alongside His people and was always longsuffering, patient and waiting for any of us that would turn to Him. He provided the solution for mankind to come back to Him, but many still do not see the Restoration. God gave His only begotten son as The Way to come to Him. His door, through Christ, is always open.

One of the main problems of the human beings is that they put their trust in mere man. They look forward that other men can find a political solution to make this life better. Some look to their idols to inspire them, other put all their trust in so called powerful persons.  They all forget that no ordinary man shall be capable to find the most sublime best solution. They hope to find any kind of consistency and salvation in mankind.  They forget what happened in passed time. Many do not know the history of mankind.

In case more people would know the history of the world and religion they would know that the reasons why it is such a mess is that people have far gone off the Law of God. Many our blinded, even when they do think they are religious and belonging to a church. In those churches they eat dogmatic words and often have not much Words of God coming unto them. Words of pastors and men surround them. Some of them want to bring the flock to see through the mist, to look at God, who alone is our rock and source of eternal lifeGod alone is worthy of our praise.

And because humankind does not recognises the works of the Creator, they also do not praise enough. In case they would praise more they would also be more enlightened.

Praise is not some non-emotional reaction – it is a holistic pouring out of self to lift up our voice and spirit to the Lord.  It isn’t a suggestion – it is a command.  It is an action.  It requires us to be totally involved emotionally, spiritually and physically.

Praising the Most High, Creator of all things, should become a way of life.

For every God loving person it is a way of living. It is a lifestyle.

Praising God is something that comes in earnest from the heart. It is the fulfilment of the grace of love. To Praise God involves all of the individual ‘I’.

To praise the Almighty God isn’t some external only action. It involves our entire being.  It takes all of us, down to our very soul, to praise Jehovah, God of all gods, King of all kings and King of all gods.

Praising God, is showing our love to Him and giving Him notice that we do not put ​our​ trust in nobles, nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs. It is recognising how small we are and that when we come to the end of our life our spirit goes out and we go back to the ground of this world, becoming dust. It is recognising that in the day of our death it shall be the day that our thoughts do perish.

By praising Jehovah, using His Name, we show Him that we want to give ourselves to Him and that we want to show are thanks for the many blessed moments we get in this life, though it may also be filled with difficult moments and moments never to be remembered. But by praising God we show Him and the world around us that we are belonging to the happy ones who has the God of Jacob for their help, whose hope is in Jehovah their God,  the Maker of heaven and earth, of the sea, and of all that is in them, the One keeping trueness to time indefinite.

By praising Him alone we show the world and its Creator that we are willing to give ourselves in the hand of the Elohim, the One executing judgement for the defrauded ones, the One giving bread to the hungry ones, because we know that Jehovah is releasing those who are bound. We are sure that Jehovah is opening our eyes and even those of the blind ones.

In case we do bow down in front of God He might raise us up.

Jehovah is loving the righteous ones and is guarding the alien residents. Wherever we may be on this earth or this universe God is willing to be with us. When we call unto Him He shall come unto us.

Giving praise to Jehovah the king to time indefinite, we let Him know that we do recognise those facts, as written in His Word, the Bible. We do recognise that His Word is infallible and let it inspire us every hour of the day. Reading in the Bible is also a form of praising God, often forgotten by many. It is like reading the love letter from your most beloved over and over again, thinking of Him all the time, wanting to be close by Him.

We should take as much time as we can in the Word of God, reading it and taking it at heart. By reading those Words of Hope we shall get to know better the rock on which our fortress shall stand strong. In the Words of God we shall be able to find who is our Deliverer; our God being our rock, in whom we take refuge.

He is my and your shield and the horn of my and your salvation, my and your stronghold, in case you are willing to recognise the Most High. His only begotten son made it possible for all people to be reconciled again with the Father of all. It is on Him that we should call. Jesus learned his followers to pray to his Father with the words ‘Our Father’. Yes we can say “Our Father” to the creator of all things and praise Him. We also can ask Him many things in the name of His son Jesus.

Let us be humble enough and give praise to the right one. Praise to the LORD of lords, who is worthy of praise.

We need to recognize God and His sovereignty continually. And we should praise Him with all our heart,with all our soul, but also we are told

I will sing praises to my God while I have my being”.

That reinforces the lifelong aspect of praise, but also that singing is one way we should be lifting up His name.  We should praise Him with our voice.  It isn’t something we should always do in a closet but verbally and often in front of others. His son also asked his pupils to go out in the world and proclaim the Name of the Father. This Name: Jehovah, should sound all over the world, through many generations.

We should let as many as possible know that we love Jehovah our God, for generation after generation.

It is a personal relationship with us the Creator God desires.  Not because He needs us, but because He loves us.  He desires that we enter into His presence and have a relationship.
Do you have that with God?
Are you praising Him with all your soul?
If not, today is the day to begin.  He is worthy.  He deserves and desires our praise!

“Praise Jah, ​YOU​ people!”

Psalm 66 HRV

 

1 To the chief musician. A Song. A
Psalm.
Make a joyful noise to Elohim, all the earth;
2 Sing out the honor of His name; give glory to His praise. {n}
3 Say to Elohim, How much to be feared are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power, Your enemies pretend obedience to You.
4 All the earth shall worship You; and they sing to You; they shall praise Your name. Selah.
5 Come and see Elohim’s works, who is feared in His acts toward the sons of men.
6 He turns the sea into dry land; they go through the river on foot; there we will rejoice with Him.
7 He rules by His power forever; His eyes search out the nations; let not the rebels exalt themselves. Selah.
8 Bless our Elohim, O peoples, and make heard the voice of His praise;
9 Who holds our soul in life and does not allow our foot to slide.

10 For You, O Elohim, have proved us; You have tested us as silver is refined.
11 You have brought us into the net; You laid afflictions on our loins.
12 You have let men ride at our head; we went through fire and through water, but You brought us out to plenty. (Ps 78:21, Is 43:2)
13 I will go into Your house with burnt offerings; I will pay You my vows, (Ps 96:8)
14 which my lips have opened, and my mouth has spoken in my trouble.
15 I will offer burnt sacrifices of fatlings to You, with the incense of rams; I will offer bulls with goats. Selah. (Ps 51:18-19)

16 Come, hear, and let me recount, all you who fear Elohim, what He has done for my soul.
17 I cried to Him with my mouth, and exaltations were under my tongue.
18 If I had regarded iniquity in my heart, YAHWEH would not have heard.
19 Surely, Elohim has heard; He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be Elohim, who has not turned away my prayer and His mercy
from me! (Pr 28:9)

*


{n}  It is a most wonderful honor to sing and give glory to the personal name of YAHWEH. How sad that most have been deceived by religious authorities to call the Creator by the name “god”, which is the personal name of the Babylonian deity. See note on Isaiah 65:11. Yahweh will not give the glory due to His name to pagan deities, Isaiah 42:8, Psalm 96:8, Psalm 68:4.

  • Applying Psalm 20 (924jeremiah.wordpress.com)
    These are well-wishes, not guarantees or promises about how God will treat us when we pray. God will certainly not give us everything we ask for, nor will He give us everything we desire. As we mature, the Holy Spirit will inspire us to want our desires to be changed to match God’s best for us. The more we want what God wants, the more we will find our desires being fulfilled by Him.
  • The Remedy: Praising God Psalm 66:2 (prienblog.wordpress.com)
    Although we have no set of rules governing daily praise and we have no commandment prescribing certain hours to sing or give thanks, the law written on our hearts teaches us that it is right to praise God. The unwritten urgency comes to us with as much force as if it had been recorded on tablets of stone, or handed to us from the top of thundering Sinai.
  • Psalms 66-69 (whatshotn.wordpress.com)
    2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious. 3 Say unto God, How terrible [art thou in] thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. 4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing [to] thy name.
    +
    Often when God called someone to serve Him in a special way (such as a king or prophet), He would instruct that person to have oil poured over their heads as a way of publicly broadcasting God’s special calling on their lives. God’s anointing was an act of favoritism, and was to be treated with great respect. David always respected those who God anointed. He was anointed himself when God called him to be king over Israel.

    Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy. (Psalms 59:17 KJV)

    … I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. I will go in the strength of the Lord God : I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. (Psalms 71:14-16 KJV)

    El Hannora – The Awesome God
    Nehemiah 9:32    Now therefore, our God, the great God, mighty and awesome, who keeps his covenant of love, do not let all this hardship seem trifling in your eyes—the hardship that has come on us, on our kings and leaders, on our priests and prophets, on our ancestors and all your people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until today.

Psalm 66 OJB

 

(For the one directing. Shir. Mizmor.)

Make a joyful shout unto Elohim, kol HaAretz;
|2| Sing forth the kavod Shmo; make kavod (glorious) His tehillah (praise).
|3| Say unto Elohim, How norah (awesome) art Thou in Thy ma’asim (works)! Through the greatness of Thy oz (might) shall Thine oyevim cower before Thee.

|4| Kol ha’aretz shall prostrate before Thee, and shall sing unto Thee; they shall sing praise to Shimecha. Selah.
|5| Come and see the works of Elohim; He is norah (awesome) in deed toward Bnei Adam.
|6| He turned the yam into yabashah (dry land; see Gn 1:10); they passed through the nahar on regel; there did we rejoice in Him.
|7| He ruleth by His gevurah (power) olam (forever); His eyes are a watchman’s eyes over the Goyim; let not the sorerim (rebellious ones) exalt themselves. Selah.

|8| Barchu Eloheinu, Amim, and make the kol (sound) of His tehillah (praise) to be heard.
|9| He is the One who set nafsheinu in chayyim and does not permit ragleinu (our foot) to slip.
|10| For Thou, Elohim, hath tested us and hast proved us; Thou hast put us in the crucible’s refining and refined us as kesef.
|11| Thou broughtest us into the metzudah (prison); Thou laidst a mu’akah (burden) upon our loins.
|12| Thou hast caused enosh (mankind) to ride over rosheinu (our head); we went through eish and through mayim; but Thou broughtest us out into plenty.

|13| I will come into Thy Beis [HaMikdash] with olot; I will fulfill for Thee my nedarim,
|14| Which my sfatayim have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in tzoros.
|15| I will offer unto Thee olot mekhim (burnt offerings of fat animals), with the ketoret (incense, offering) of rams; I will offer bakar with goats. Selah.

|16| Come and hear, Kol Yirei Elohim, and I will declare what He hath done for my nefesh.
|17| I cried unto Him with my mouth, and He was extolled with my leshon.
|18| If I regard avon (iniquity, sin) in my lev, Adonoi will not hear me;
|19| But surely Elohim hath heard me; He hath attended to the kol tefillati (voice of my prayer).

|20| Baruch Elohim, Who hath not turned away my tefillah, nor His chesed from me.
