1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

Ps 26:6-7 “I will wash my hands in innocence; So I will go about Your altar, O Lord, That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works.”

How do we praise God?

Do we praise God for all that He has done to the Israelites? Do we praise God for His Son Jesus Christ? Do we praise God for His everlasting love and His attributes? Yes these are all we use to praise God and that it is fittingly so. However, God also looks in our praises whether there is any mention about His leading or the leading that set before us.

What we experience from our God should be part of our praise and worship. Not only the thing He did, for also the things, He is going to do. Israelites praised God with songs after they crossed red sea. The same Israelites praise God with a loud shout before the walls of Jericho came down. Paul and Silas praised God before their deliverance from the prison.  We should also praise God for what He has done in our life and to those answered prayers, which we prayed for others. At the same time, we have to praise God for the way that He has set in front of our face in faith. These enable us to praise God through tough times and times of rest.
