3But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
This scripture tells us something very important. When you praise GOD, it takes you into the presence of GOD. GOD dwells where there is praise. HE wants our praise and worship. If we do this we draw close to HIM.
When we worship and praise HIM, GOD responds by coming to us. HE dwells in the praises of HIS people...HIS kids...you and I. HE longs for your praise as much as you long for HIM. If you don't feel close to HIM...start praising HIM.
We need to incorporate praise into our daily lives. Don't just save it for church on Sunday. Use your time driving to and from work to thank and praise HIM. Get up a little early and spend time with GOD before work. I know I have to work on that. At night before you go to sleep put on some praise music and worship GOD for a while. You might sleep better...even if you don't you might feel more rested in the morning just because you spent time in HIS presence.
Find a time and a place that works best for you and make praise and worship to GOD part of your daily life.
