Topic — Praise: A Key To Accessing His Presence
It has been confirmed that the Presence of God is key to fulfilling Destiny. Men who were great in their generation were men who valued God’s Presence.
SCRIPTURE: Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalm 100:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Goodness of God is located in the Presence of God.
It has been confirmed that the Presence of God is key to fulfilling Destiny. Men who were great in their generation were men who valued God’s Presence. Moses, David and Elijah lived in the Presence of God. No wonder they were people of impact in their lifetime.
It is very critical to know that one major access to the Presence of God is praise and thanksgiving. When a person comes before God and starts asking without praising, it is like a person standing outside the gate of a person’s house trying to talk to the owner of the house who is in his bedroom. When that attempt continues, it is more like insanity. We cannot gain entrance into His gates without thanksgiving; we cannot access His parlour without praise.
So, praise gives us access to God and when we gain access into God’s Presence by praise, we experience the following:
1 The manifestation of the goodness of God.
It is not possible to know how to praise and not experience the goodness of God – Psalm 100:5.
2 The manifestation of the Mercy of God.
The mercy of God is located in the Presence of God and this is anchored by praise – Psalm 100:5.
3 The manifestation of the truth of God (Psalm 100:6).
The truth of God is the Word of God (John 17:17).
Beloved, my counsel to you is, make up your mind to praise God unconditionally.
REMEMBER THIS: The goodness of God is located in the Presence of God.
Make the praise of God a lifestyle.
Live with a clear conscience devoid of offence in order to access the Presence of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I give You praise for Your goodness in my life. I will praise You forever, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
