"Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful." Psalm 33:1
IN JESUS TODAY!
God hears your praise and calls it beautiful! Here is a call to bless God, not only to ask him for a blessing, but to bless him with praise for all that he has done! It is good and beautiful in the Lord's eyes to praise him, as it is written, "Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praise to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful." Psalm 147:1 Our praise is pleasant to God and he lives in it. God inhabits our praise because he loves it and welcomes it, as it is written, "But you are holy, enthroned in the praise of Israel." Psalm 22:3 God lives in our praise, but just as it is with any place of habitation, we demand that it is suitable, in other words we clear our habitation from things such as rats, roaches, ants, and so on because we do not desire to live in these conditions. It is the same for God, he desires to live in a suitable habitation that is full of praise, without cursing, confusion, depression, oppression, and the like. What does this tell us? From this we can understand that if we desire God in our lives we must make our life and our words suitable for him to reside in it, and through praise for him we can clean house!
When we rejoice in the Lord, and when we give him praise, we are actually making our house beautiful and clean, suitable for a king to take up residence. So let us praise Jesus, it is beautiful to praise him!
