The Business of Praise (Part 1) (Psalm 92:1-3)Tommy Boring, August 24, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Man can not work for seven days. If you try to work seven days for very long you will find yourself drained. Many people have their own views of which day is the sabbath but we recognize the first day, Sunday as the sabbath. We should lift of our voices to give thanks unto The Lord, but we should also sing it. How many times do you sit back and let someone else give praises? People come to church for many different reasons. It's time we pay back the debtor for what He did! Worship is contagious. Some has taken the day of rest to the extreme, you've fallen asleep on God. All earths creation has no problem with worshipping and praising God. The birds, rocks and even the fish give praise but we as humans have a problem with doing that. If you're walking around mad at someone, you can't praise God! There is a common component in praising God, that is God. Without God, nothing can be done. Everyone is looking for the "good thing". Praising God is a good thing. People should see YOU praise God. When the end of your day comes you can always think back and be thankful for something. Your heart never misses a beat during the night as you sleep, be thankful. Some things to praise God for. Mercy, patience, long suffering, kindness, provision, faithfulness, true, never fails, constant, omnipresent, omnipotent, etc. Sometimes just music is praising God. When it comes with the purpose of giving God praise, give Him praise. Col 3:16, Eph 5:19, In your hearts is the common place of praise. What keeps YOU from worship? Are you ashamed? Do you have sin in your heart?

1It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: 2To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, 3Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound. (KJV)
