HOW TO PRAISE GOD


Before a particular task can be successful; right tools must be used, so that best result can be achieved. So also it is when you want to render praise to God almighty.
For God to accept our praises; we must have the right attitude to praise; we must also have the right spirit. The bible says in (John 4:23-24) Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the father in spirit and in truth, for they  are the kind of worshippers the father seeks.God is a spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth .This scriptures explains why we should worship God in spirit and in truth; because He is a “SPIRIT”. If you want to be in His presence; you need His spirit to also come upon you, when you are in the realm of the spirit; then you can feel the presence of God.
In praising God; He is asking for more than song he wants our heart to be filled with his thoughts. The bible says in Romans 8:8 that those that live in flesh cannot please God. If you want to please God in your praise, you need the Holy Spirit to lead you.

The attitude we should cultivate when praising God is filling up our hearts with the good deeds of the most high, we need to ask the spirit of God to take over and lead us through the period of praise.
A lot of people praise God in the flesh, but they believe they are truly praising God in spirit. Going to church does not make you a worshiper, worship starts from our hearts. Some people dance and jump up not because they know what they are doing, or why they are praising, but they just love the music and they feel like dancing, God does not inhabit such praise.
There is more to praise than music, instrument, vocal chords and lyrics of the songs. God is not interested only on the melody of the songs or the voice; He does not want to be entertained. God is not looking for entertainers but the true worshipers that have the understanding of who He is. God knows everything about us; he knows when you praise Him with your heart. We can’t deceive Him.
Our salvation plays an important role in our praise to God; salvation means that you have genuinely accepted Jesus as your personal lord and saviour; you have changed from your old self to a new person in Christ. If you are not genuinely safe; the spirit of God cannot dwell in you, but the moment you accept Jesus as your lord with all your heart; He will release His spirit upon you to indwell you.
