Yesterday I attended a Praise Gathering Event, we praised God with our hands, voice, heart and whole body.  Today during my quiet time with the Lord, I paused for a moment and thought about different reasons to Praise God, Selah.  The key main reason that connected with me was because You are GOD.  Because You are God that is why I am praising You.  You created me in my mother’s womb and knew me before I was born.  You were there from the beginning  and not for one moment did you leave or forsake me.  You love because I am  more precious than rubies, gold or even diamonds.

Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life. Isaiah 43:4 NKJV

Have you taken time out, paused for a moment and thought about the million reasons to praise God.  Or you wake up in the morning, brush your teeth, have a shower, put on your cloths and go to work.  Forgetting that He is the one that woke you up this morning.  But you just get on with life, I mean that’s the norm for you.  So what is your  reason for praising and thanking God? Do you really mean what you say or are they memorised words?  Lets appreciate God for who He is……. Because You are God, what He has done and about to do and praise Him for His mighty works.

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Psalm 77:11-12 NIV

In the past I waited for situations to get better or to improve to my advantage before I praised God.  But now I realised that there is a secret to praising God, Praise your way through  your breakthrough if you need a breakthrough.   You enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, rejoice for it’s a new day, Psalm 100:4.  In the midst of it all, I praise God because the devil can’t stand my praise, they tremble at the shouts of praises offered to God.   I praise Him in the storm, rain and even on the dry land.

[Chorus]

And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm   

Song by Casting Crowns Praise You in the Storm (Song), Life Song (Album)

Because You are God I have a reason to praise You
It does not matter what  circumstance is, the pains, hurts or frustration I face
Whether I am up or down, happy or sad, sorrowful or joyful I will praise You
When I wake up in the morning, I remember it’s because You are God that I am alive
I travel everyday to work and come back home safely
Travel miles away from home and still come back safely
Then I think about Your grace, journey mercies, and protection because You are God
I think about what You have done in the past for me
How you delivered me from bondage now I am completely free because You are God
I think about my present challenges, knowing that You have seen me through
So Lord I thank You and praise You because You are truly God
