SCRIPTURE: Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. Psalms 150:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your praise is what justifies and authenticates your breath.
It has been confirmed that every part of your body and being has a function God created it to perform.
The breath of life in your nostrils was given to you to perform an assignment, and that assignment is praising God.
So, if you do not have breath, you can close your mouth and not praise God. But if you have breath, you must praise the Lord. And if you are alive and you refuse to praise the Lord, it means you hate the breath of life.
Your praise is the tenancy you pay for your continuous existence. Or rather, put it this way: Your praise is what justifies and authenticates your breath. It is what confirms that the breath you have is not a waste.
People who do not praise God with their lives are telling God that they are not qualified to live.
I want you to know that a criminal who refuses to go to church on Sunday morning but plays or watches football only lives to tell God that he is undeserving of the breath of life in his nostrils.
When God says that everything that has breath should praise Him, He is not referring to human beings only but everything that has the breath of life. This means, the birds too should praise God. That is why you hear birds sing songs and chirp melodiously as an expression of their praise and worship to God.
Remember this: Your praise is what justifies and authenticates your breath.
1. Make up your mind to praise God at all times.
2. Don’t allow your circumstances determine the way you do things; praise God regardless of circumstances.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to be always appreciative to You. Let my life be an expression of praise and worship to You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
