There are times when one simply has to simply praise God for who he is. The Psalmist remain thankful and extol the joys of the great things God has done inn their lives. But when one studies prayer as our conversations with God, we find 4 parts. The first part, adoration, is simply praising God for Who he is. The second part, confession, is confession is admitting we fail and taking responsibility for those failures. The third part, thanksgiving, is giving God the credit for the things he has done in our lives and showing our appreciation. Finally, supplication is us bringing the needs of our heart to a God who stands ready to meet them.
We tend to forget the opportunities to adore and praise God for who he is. We say thanks, we confess our sin and we call out our needs–but when we take the time to remember how great God is, then it boosts our faith to trust him with our life and future. God’s credibility is sound and in tact. He does not need our affirmation to be God. But if we focus on who he is and how what he has accomplished, it then take our focus off of ourselves and frees us up to trust him all the more.
Like the psalmist, we simply need to celebrate how great our God is and how He continues to meet our needs. We can never be too grateful or show our love and adoration to Him too much! We praise you Lord, simply because You are the great and mighty God!
God Bless You
Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.
2 For the Lord Most High is awesome,
the great King over all the earth.
3 He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.
4 He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.
5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.
8 God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
9 The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.
