What's in your mouth?

"I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth." Psalm 34:1

Do you know what kind of privilege that God gave us?

He gave us the special privilege of praising Him!

To most people that does not sound like an awesome privilege, but it is.

Just think that is what we will be doing for all eternity in heaven.

Sounds great to me.

So why not learn to praise Him down here, and get the hang of it now?

Are you able to voice your praise?

Are you able to give Him adoration?

Are you able to voice your worship towards the Creator?

Do you take these privileges lightly?

Do you take up this privilege and run with it?

Do you reflect the beauty and glory of your Creator?

Do you let that light that comes from Him be your mirror?

So, does this privilege reflect the beauty and light of God?

When we praise someone or something we are extolling or magnifying the virtues or commendable quality or trait of whom or what we are giving our praise too.

True praise can only come from that close relationship with Him!

Praise comes when we tell others about God's goodness.

When we give God adoration, we are giving Him the highest respect and love, we are adoring Him.

When we give God adoration we are worshipping Him with all that we have within us!

We are essentially saying that we adore and revere God!

When we worship God we are paying homage or that we have the highest regard or respect.

When we praise and worship with our mouth we are giving Him thanks for Who He is!

We don't have the choice whether or not to worship.

The choice comes as to choose whom to worship.

Will it be God?

Will it be someone or something else?

"Then saith Jesus unto Him, get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve." Matthew 4:10

Who will you choose?

Will you worship idols?

An idol is anything that is put in front of God.

Will it be God?

With this new year approaching fast, you can start over, and choose the right one.

The more that we worship that certain someone or something the more that we become liker that someone or something.

We are to become more like God.

We are to reflect that light that only comes from Him.

"And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." II Corinthians 3:18 NIV
