With me It’s my writing that I do most every day.
I’m sure all our praise is a little different, but something is coming out of the child of God, and the more so with age. His Holy Spirit brings praise out of us by revealing what Jesus has done for us. When I came to be baptized, I came out of fear and blinded with pride. He has since cast out all fear and opened my eyes.
“Everything that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I certainly will not cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that of everything that He has given Me I will lose nothing but will raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.'” (John 6:37-40 NASB)
Our praise is the song creation hears while the Father listens. To the one who comes with fear, you will not be cast out. It was the Father who gave you to Jesus. To see Jesus, as the Father’s Son, is to have His Spirit showing you to you. We are changed when we believe in Him. If you can say, “Thank You, Lord. Amen!”, then we are going to praise God together forever.
Imagine that! Wonder what we sounded like, just now, to Him? Will many others be reminded of what Jesus has done for them? Let’s praise God for the things He has done. The best gift you can give, this Christmas season, is to praise God to someone else. Imagine that!
