My wise Bible study teaching leader encourages us to start our prayers with praise. Too often we skip straight to thanking God for things He has done for us. But, when we praise, we simply proclaim who God is, stating, “God, You are…” ⠀
Why do we do this? Because He is WORTHY! We all sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23), and God showed His love for us by sending His Son to pay the price through death on a cross and give us hope of eternal life through His resurrection (John 3:16)! 🙌🏽🙌🏻🙌🏿⠀
He is the only one worthy of our praise and worship! And God not only delights in our praise, but it shapes our prayers. It reminds us of who God is before we thank Him, confess, and present our requests to Him.⠀
Revelation 4:11 is one of my new favorite praise verses I’ve been memorizing. What are some of your favorite praise verses? What’s one attribute of God you will praise Him for today?
