God covets our praises. The walls of Jericho fell when Israel praised God. (Joshua 6:20) Because Paul and Silas praised God, they were delivered from prison and others were won to Christ. Praise is not a feeling, but a commandment to praise Jesus in all things. (1 Thess. 5:18) Praise is a tonic for the blues and a sure cure for all that ails you! Learn to praise God, for Heaven’s filled with the praises of the redeemed.
