God is the focus of our devotion in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. In Exodus 20:2-3, God says, "I am the LORD your God .....You shall have no other gods before me." In Matthew 4:10, Jesus says, "Worship the Lord your God and serve him only." So, worship is not merely a natural instinct, it's a command from God.

God alone is worthy of our devotion, praise and worship. He is God, our Creator, and we are commanded to praise and worship Him. Psalm 96:9 says, "Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth." Psalm 29:2 says, "Give unto the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."

God truly dwells in the praises of His people. It is amazing to see people cry out of joy during praise and worship. When we open our mouths, souls and spirits to praise God, we invite the Holy Spirit to come into our lives to enlighten our beings and transform us into His presence. (Psalm 66:4)

Praise and worship, exposes us to the beauty of the Lord. It makes us submit our sorrows and worries unto Him. Our earthly places connect us with the heavenly praise and worship of the merciful God, thereby connecting us to the power of God that can easily provide for the need of man. Praise releases the presence of the Holy Spirit in our midst to meet our needs. Praise opens up locked doors in our lives as we worship our Maker who alone can sustain us.


Psalm 111:1 (KJV) Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
