Inhabited or Inhibited Praise?

January 23, 2012 — Leave a comment

In my message, Next Step: Praise, I talked about God inhabiting our praise and the things we can do to inhibit praise.  You can hear the entire message here: Journey Christian Church Media

Psalm 22:3

 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

God inhabits our praise!  The word that’s used here means that when we praise God it “causes Him to sit down, remain, and dwell.”

Do you ever feel that God has left you?  My question is, “Are you still praising Him?”

God inhabits the praises of His people.  Which is what I want, so I began to reflect on the things that inhibit praise.

Do you know some of the things that inhibit praise?

1. Personal Preferences

We all like things a certain way and sometimes our preferences can quickly become our priorities.

2. Pain

Sometimes it’s hard to praise God in the storm.

3.    Pride

To praise God is to participate in an act that makes one vulnerable and some of us are to prideful to clap for, dance for, sing to, or give to any one other than ourselves.

4.    aPathy

Some people don’t praise God because they just don’t care about God.
