“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all Your marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You: I will sing praise to Your name, O You Most High.” Psalm 9:1-2 (KJV)
When one praises the LORD with the whole heart; with the life, in words, actions, devotion, commitment, and love; then, there will also be gladness and rejoicing.
When we praise Him, we see Him for who He says He is, and we recognize Him to be. He is our Creator, He is our Sustainer, He is our Great Physician, He is our Advocate with the Father, He is our very bestest Friend, He is our Savior, King, and Lord; just to give a few. The next time you approach the LORD in prayer begin with words of praise, then Thanksgiving, then request, and end the prayer by again recognizing who He is. This is very much the same way Jesus taught us how to pray in Matthew 6:8-13.
Let the people of God everywhere praise the LORD. He is worthy of praise. And when we praise Him with a sincere heart of we will sing praises to His name. To the name of the Most High GOD.
Be glad and rejoice in the LORD who is the Most High.
