A Revival Of Praise


"Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name" (Ps.100:4).

If you have been on the planet for a while, you have more than likely been to a gospel meeting. Maybe your church has sponsored one. Gospel meetings or Revivals as they are sometimes called, have always been a part of church programs. The truth is that revival is very much an individual thing. An aspect of our spiritual lives that needs to be revived is our sense of praise. One thing that needs revival is the return of joy in our worship. King David began Psalm 122 with these words; "I rejoiced with those that said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.' " Sometimes we grow too comfortable in our ways and that can lead to apathy. When we approach worship with joy and gladness, the sense of our relationship with the Lord is renewed and our expectations grow. We serve a great God and He wants us to expect more from Him. A few tips on the revival of praise.....Rejoicing in the Lord is a choice! We should make that choice because God wants us to be filled with joy. People may visit our churches, but they will never choose to stay if we are not joyful people. As our joy of praise is revived, so should be the persistence of our prayers because God answers prayers. Lastly, an important part of the revival of praise is our display of gratitude. GOD LOVES A THANKFUL HEART!!! So there we have it....We can do much to experience a revival in praise by making a few conscious choices...Choose to rejoice...Be persistent in prayer...Display an attitude of gratitude...The Lord is worthy of our praise, and we ought to show it...

Have a wonderful day...Let your light shine for HIM..... Love mark Phil. 4:11
