Praise Releases God’s Presence

Main Text
Psalms 30:1-12

To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night.
Psalms 92:2 NKJV

There is an incredible depth to God’s lovingkindness. God’s entire relationship to us is rooted in His lovingkindness. It is threaded all through the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New. (Luke 24:44). God will be with you because you are praising Him and not because you are crying. When you give in to praise, you are qualified for His divine presence and when you carry His presence, it makes all the difference in life. Therefore, develop the heart of thanksgiving and praise, and the presence of the Lord will never depart from you.

God’s lovingkindness is not a passive mood or emotional feeling but God’s proactive faithful love in action which includes acting for us and responding to us.(Psalms 25:10). It showcases the grandeur and greatness of our God’s character and nature. There is nothing you can do to make God love you more or love you less. God loves you! And when you truly “get that”, your life will be radically and eternally transformed for the better. The divine presence of God covers you when you are a thanks giver.

The entire message that God has graciously communicated to mankind through His Word be summed up right here: God’s love toward us is great, and his faithfulness is unending. (Psalms 117:2). Love and faithfulness, that is our God in a nutshell. He is faithful morning after morning, with each new day, to extend His mercy, cover us with grace, shower us with goodness and embrace us with everlasting love. His love endures forever. Praise and thanksgiving qualifies you to carry the divine presence of God and that is all you need to have a triumphant ride in life. (Psalms 22:3).

Heavenly Father, thank you for your faithfulness and reliability, you are always there, always solid, always reliable and you never fail. All praise be to you.

Oh Lord, give me the grace to come to a deeper understanding and experience of who you are. Amen.
