One of my favorite Bible verses about Praise and Worship is: “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.” (Psalm 100:4)
This pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?
There’s a special closeness to God that can only be experienced through being grateful, and the subsequent worship that flows out of our hearts.
The Power of Praise & Worship
Who is more worthy of our praise than our Heavenly Father? Like the scripture says in Psalm 145 … Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom.” And this is just one of the many verses about praise and worship that highlights how awesome God is and how we can proclaim His glory.
We were created by Him, and for Him. Our praise should be shouts of devotion and complete adoration of all that He has done for us in our lives, so that others may come to know His complete goodness as well.
Mama Z has always had a heart for worship, She was part of the choir/praise and worship team at the churches we’ve attended. She wanted to publicly share the joy in her heart for all the blessings we have had in our lives.
Along with declaring the goodness of our King in our praise at church and shouting it from the rooftops, “Jesus said we are to worship God in Spirit and Truth.” Our family takes time to worship with a fervent heart in the privacy of our home. As creatures created by the Creator, it is our natural instinct to worship Him.
Our children engage in worship with Sabrina and me when they see us bow our heads and take a moment to speak to God directly. A one on one conversation with our Creator to thank Him. To truly worship your heart must be humbled, obedient, and desire to be free from sin. God is there to receive your worship when you give it to Him freely. We need to reach out and give Him all the glory and honor.
Our heart is to teach our children the meaning of what whole-heart praise and worship mean, and you see more Bible verses about children and parenting to inspire you further as you bring up future generations.
My hope and prayer are for you and your family to find time to spend with God in praise and worship regularly.
To clear your mind, body, and soul from all negativity and spend time in pure and genuine worship. He is deserving of all glory and praise that should be proclaimed and exalted from when you rise up to when you lie down. I pray these bible verses about praise and worship will help you learn to exalt the Lord.
