Psalm 34:1 “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth”.
One thing you have to know is that you can praise God too little. But you can never praise Him too much. The Psalmist knew the power and importance of praise; that is why he wrote “His praise shall continually be in my mouth”. He also wrote in Psalm 113:3 that, “From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name shall be praised”. This means that the Psalmist made praising God his lifestyle. When you are overwhelmed by circumstances, the last thing you feel like doing is praising God. But it should be the very first thing to do because praise gets your attention off yourself to God’s miraculous power. Jehoshaphat faced an army he had no hope of defeating. But when he employed praise as a weapon, God caused his enemies to destroy each other while he looked on. Paul and Silas as prisoners in chains employed praise as a weapon and their chains were broken and the heavily guarded prison doors opened. It is normal for humans to focus on the problem than to praise God, but never forget that your praise would solve your problem if you decide to praise God. You should never underestimate the power of praise as a potent weapon in getting God to deal with issues in your favor. You should start to acknowledge the power of praise and choose to exalt God regardless of how you feel. Praise brings you into God’s presence and positions you for His favor and blessings. Use the power of praise at all times and you will get your needed results from God.
