“I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.” Psalm 34:1 NIV
Dear Lord Heavenly Father, Almighty, All Powerful. This morning I come to you in group prayer as we all touch and agree... Today is a new day, today is the day we all take head to your rightful command to Praise You. Please whisper into each of our ears, hold our hands and give us the strength to let go of these comfort zones of fear, worries, doubts and grasp instead your wonderful Glory, Might, Power, Grace, Mercy and Love!!! Thank You Lord, Hallelujah!!!
Well when you break it down all the commandments are to keep us, healthy, happy, safe, and able to be in His Presence... So then what. The command to Praise His Holy name, Hallelujah!! Through Praise we gain everything, so no wonder Father God is commanding this, again another show of His Great Love for us. In business we have a saying, "keep it simple stupid". Don't you think this is simple, His commands are simple, basic list of don't be stupid, it is simple follow these and LIVE!!!
You have to stop and really look at the entire context of the Bible, it's beauty, it's order, it's strategies for success, warnings, messages of peace and mighty power. I believe, from being a Christian almost my entire life (so maybe these words are accurate, at least my view); Christians are missing out!! Missing the most important messages in the Word. And only somewhat living, wouldn't you rather live Whole, totally what God wants for you? Start to change that today, take the command to heart and PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME, Smile, be Thankful in all things ... And watch what happens. Don't let people, the enemy, your own worries and negative tapes playing steal your Joy. Stop, it is within your power to make that choice, so start today, power up on Him!! His love, His Promises, His Powerful Joy He is offering you.
Of course there is much to learn, much growth He has for us, for YOU!! Let's keep it simple shall we, Just Do It!
PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME, HALLELUJAH!
“I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” Psalm 34:1-8 NIV
“Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.” Psalm 148:13 NIV
Today is the day the Lord has made, stand up and Rejoice, Stand and Praise Him!!! All you have has been given to you by Him, all you want and all you need has been provided by Him!! Thank You Lord, Hallelujah!!!!
All to often we get stuck in our own sorrows, our own pain, even our own errors and missed steps. It is time, time to rejoice that WE ARE RESCUED. HE HAS SAVED US, died for all of our sins past, present and future. There are no limits here, so it's okay to let go and forgive yourselves. Why are we carrying them around with us?? I am forgiving myself today, yes I have many things that just yesterday I weepped over, weeping to the Lord please forgive me, please give me a do over. I realized this morning in prayer we ALL have those do overs, we just need to take them. Like perfectly ripe grapes on a vine, waiting to be taken. Do you look at the grape and say, I'm not sure if it is real, I'm not sure if it will taste good... No way you know it's awesome, plop it in your mouth and smile with its sweetness. WOW it is just that simple, TYL PTL
Each of those grapes are your victories, sweet and perfect just waiting for you to Stand And Rejoice.
In HIS Perfect Plan, His Perfectly Planned Victories for YOU!!!
Let me say it like this, have faith, believe, KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE ASKED FOR IS ON ITS WAY!!! It's ALREADY DONE!!! Thank You Lord, Thank You Jehovah Jireh!!!
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:4-9 NIV
Pour The Word of God Over Your Mind Daily. Your mind is continually exposed to dirt, grime and dust of people's opinions.
Renew your mind with the TRUTH. God's Word! Schedule an appointment with the Holy Spirit and your Bible daily. The renewing of the mind is the key to changes within you. Key to His reveal for you, Key to your testimony and Your total Peace!! I was talking to a friend a few years ago, you know what of those, "what do you like to do, fun things, hobbies etc?" He said, "well I am a simple country boy from Louisiana. All I need is the Word, All I want is His Peace. Now believe me when he said that to me, I thought huh... what did he just say. Nothing is that simple I thought to myself.
Well now I know, he is right. It is that simple, it is a choice, our blessings of His Gift of Free Will. Choose to spend time in the Word. You will be heavily rewarded, spoken to, and loved on from our Heavenly Father like nothing else you have ever experienced. It is amazing really - and then what follows is Total Peace.
God's Words are like waterfalls -- perfect temperature, soft soothing water flowing with such power and wisdom - His Words washing and purifying your mind. WOW. Thank you Lord!
"That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word"

I love my beats, everyone that knows me knows how much I love music, music of all kinds - so what else have I done in the past 2 years of working with the Holy Spirit to cleanse my life, my testimony, my outlook, my words, my behavior and actions... all of it!! Two Big Things - so big I am sure I will touch on them again on another day
Before we are looking at other words other Hebrew words for praise I wanted to note that psalms 22:69 have to do with the suffering of Jesus the Messiah, especially those suffering is related to the crucifixion. In fact, passages from both the psalms are quoted and applied to the Lord Jesus in the Gospel's, most extensively so in the accounts of his death.
This is in reference to the praise piece that I wrote to explain TEHILLAH as praise and praise language; what it is that the Lord is commanding that we do. So right now I want to put a pause in it and say let's see what Jesus did.
How about we look at these two Palms and how much the Messiah himself understood the glorious nature of praising God. Start at Psalm 22 and Psalm 69; Jesus even held on to a determined anticipation of meeting of the multitudes in praise of God, while he was enduring sorrows him self. So the lesson here is you don't have to be happy to praise God you don't have to be free of stress to praise God, you don't have to have your life perfect before you can praise God. In fact the most powerful praise is praising him in your sorrow, Praising him because you know he will deliver you even while you're still amidst your pain that's that's the power of the real crazies. That is the power of faith. As believers we have to understand how important crazy is and in the midst of it how important it is for us to praise God, praise his holy name!!
In Psalm 22:3 the suffering redeemer acknowledges God's holiness, and he properly dwells (literally, "is seated") on the praises of Israel. Inverses 22 and 25 he pledges to lead out in praise in the midst of Gods vast congregation. In verse 27 he believes the results of his suffering will include the turning of all the world to Jehovah. As a result "… All the kindreds of the nation shall worship before thee"
additionally, in verse 26, he is in visioning praise and happiness among God's people.
The man of sorrows, The ONE acquainted with grief, had the glorifying and praising of our praiseworthy God so close to his heart. Certainly we who have so marvelously benefited from HIS great redemtion should never, never (for any reason), refrain from giving him praise all our lives. Everyone living and breathing is to praise our glorious God!
Similarly, and Psalm 69 the one on whom the reproaches fell, the one to whom they gave gall and vinegar in response to his thirst, still declares, "I will praise the name of God with the song, and will magnify him with Thanksgiving" that was verse 30.
And what was his final concern in this psalm of anguish? His goal was that heaven and earth, and even every creature in the sea, would come to praise God, and that his own people would be redeemed and inherit God's blessing in their land versus 34 through 36 what an amazing savior
In addition to TEHILLAH, there are other Hebrew words for praise like TOWDAH, and YADAH; they respectively are defined for such concepts as thanks, Thanksgiving. The king James translators chose praise, for these words, which normally have to do with lifting one's hands and thankfulness. One such case in psalms 50:23, where T0WDAH is translated praise. This family of words is used as extensively as BALLAL/TEHILLAH/TEHILLIM group.
There are numerous references in scripture to magnify God. To magnify him is to make him larger, grander and more magnificent than he was before in our understanding, our speech and our lives. We can read this even further the New Testament; see how the Savior chose to regard his own humiliations; he despised the shame. We can magnify own embarrassments and despise the Lord who judges fairly and maintains our cause, or we can belittle our own humiliations and make God's honor and concerns and his majestic reputation magnified even that much more.
So today let's do it, lift him up, praise him, praise him beyond our understanding our speech our lives beyond what we think is praiseworthy. Because he himself is the definition of praiseworthy! Thank you Lord, praise the Lord, praise his holy name hallelujah
