How to Praise God

Psalm 66 is full of exhortations, calling on people to do and say things in praise to God. We learn that God appreciates it when we turn the volume up. We are instructed to recount what God has done not in cold checklist fashion, but by magnifying God. Tell Him why what He did was so special, and why we appreciate it so much. Our praise should also be directed to other people who aren’t praising God yet. They need to hear why they should drop whatever they are doing and come praise Him, too. Our worship should remember both national deliverances and personal answers to prayer. So if you think you don’t know how to worship rightly, listen to Psalm 66, and shout for joy.
