But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel. (Psalm 22:3)
Praising God means adoring Him, honoring Him, and exalting Him
God takes delight in praise and worship. He enjoys praise and worship
Praise ye the LORD.
Praise God in his sanctuary.
Praise him in the firmament of his power.
Praise him for his mighty acts
Praise him according to his excellent greatness.
Praise him with the sound of the trumpet.
Praise him with the psaltery and harp.
Praise him with the timbrel and dance.
Praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
Praise him upon the loud cymbals.
Praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
It is does us good to praise the Lord.
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto your name, O most High:
To shew forth your loving kindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night,
Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
For you, LORD, have made me glad through your work: I will triumph in the works of your hands.
The benefits of praise and worship
His Presence: When you praise and worship God, you are bringing down His presence, because he inhabits the praises of His people (Psalm 100:4).
His Power: When you praise and worship God, He manifests his power (Acts 16:30-31). His power saves, heals, and delivers.
His Glory: When you praise and worship God, the Glory of God comes down (1 Kings 8:10-11).
His anointing: When you praise and worship God, the anointing of God descends upon His servants. Because of this they are able to minister more effectively. (II Kings 3:15-16).
His deliverance: When you praise and worship God, the deliverance power of God comes into play (II Chron 20:1-20). God comes down to deliver His people as they praise and worship Him.
