The scripture says “let everything that has breath praise the lord”. (Psalm 150:6) as long as you are living; it is mandatory for you to praise the lord your maker. It does not matter if you are rich or poor, happy or sad, healthy or sick. We need to praise God no
matter the situation we find ourselves. (Thessalonians 4-18) “Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”.
Praising God should not be done when you are happy only; it should not be done only when you have gotten answer to your prayer, it should be done at all times, in any situation or condition.
Some people did not see any reason to praise God in the condition they are; they believe that praise should be given to God when they have achieved something.
The mistake people are making is that they are ignorant of who God is. Whether they praise God or not God remains unchanged. The bible says delight yourself in the lord and He will grant you your heart desire.
Praise should not be given to God only when you are looking up to Him for one thing or the other, rather praise should be rendered to Him everyday. Some people run to God when they are in need, once that need is met; they go away from His presence.

Nobody is exempted from praising God, (Psalm 8-2) From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise. If God wants little children to praise Him for all His deeds, we can clearly affirm that there is no excuse for any creature not to praise Him.  In Psalm 47:1-2 there is a clarion call to all nations to praise the lord our maker, that reigns all over the earth, all the nations are His own, and they are under Him.
The verse also explained further why we should praise God. “The great kings over all the earth” We see how the earthly kings are being honoured and worshiped, how much more the king of kings that created all the earthly kings. He is the one that enthrones and dethrones, He deserves more praise and honour more than the earthly kings.
We need to praise God because everything comes from Him, the bible says everything comes from God and without Him; nothing was made.
