By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.
Today's scripture text offers sound advise regarding offering praises to God constantly because He is worthy of all honor, worship and praises. The scripture also encourages us to offer praises to God regardless of the situation. If we are experiencing troubles, praise God. When sickness occur, praise God, heartache and pain, praise God; just simply praise Him. Whatever the situation is it could be much worse; therefore, take comfort in knowing that God of the universe is in control and as promised will never leave nor forsake His own. He asks that we cast all our cares upon Him (1 Peter 5:7) and leave worry and concerns behind.
Offering sacrifices of praises to God regardless of what we may be experiencing is recognizing that He is the God of our salvation, our refuge, our high tower and is worthy to be praised (Psalm 46:1). This mean God is our all in all. This in of itself is praise worthy. It is just good to give thanks to God as this is a form of worship.
When we can praise God in the midst of trouble is evidence of one's spiritual growth as well as one's relationship with God. As praises go up to God blessings come down from Him.
Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise Him.
