Forming a Habit of Praise

praiseWe have many reasons to give praise to God. As a believer in Jesus Christ and one who trusts in Him, you’ve been given an inheritance in Him that is sealed and guaranteed by the Holy Spirit. But you weren’t saved and blessed for your own glory. No, it was for God’s glory.

The apostle Paul formed an exceptional habit of praise that is a terrific model for you to follow.

  • In Ephesians 1:6, he praised God.
  • In verse 12, he praised Jesus Christ.
  • And in verses 13 and 14, Paul informs us that the Holy Spirit’s work will be to the praise of God’s glory.

Give God your heart response of praise. Make it a habit to praise Him. It’s one thing you will continue to do in heaven.

Lord, I’m so grateful to receive Your heavenly inheritance. I walk through my days with a heart full of praise and thanksgiving. May my life reflect how grateful I am for the blessings You’ve given—and continue to give—to me. Thank You! I praise You for my hope, my future, and my faith in You. Amen.

Here’s a partial description of God’s approved wardrobe.
