And my tongue shall declare Your righteousness and Your praise all day long … Psalm 35:28

Human praise of God is one of the Scripture’s major themes. As such we should make it a part of our daily activities.

Praise comes from a Latin word meaning value or price. Thus, to give praise to God is to proclaim His merit or worth. Many terms are used to express praise in the Bible, including glory, blessing, thanksgiving, and hallelujah. Hallelujah is a literal transliteration of the Hebrew for “Praise the Lord.”

Praise is about God, it is not about us. Praise always begins with God. It is only in God’s willingness to share himself with us, that we are able to enter into His presence. It’s all about God. Praise is not about what we “get out of it.” Praise is not about us feeling close to God, or having a warm fuzzy feeling. Praise is about us worshiping Jesus, it’s about Jesus, and it’s to Jesus and for Jesus
