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. But to do GOoD and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices GOD IS WELL PLEASED. Hebrews 13:15-16. The Sacrifice of Praise to God is two-fold, at the same time, and both are GOoD. First, it's a Heart Attitude, it's a Godly Desire to do something the Lord has asked us to do. That's OUR Heart's Attitude. Secondly, it's fully Obedience to the Lord because He Said to do this, no matter what this Life filled with situations and circumstances has to offer. The Desired result in doing this inside of these 2 reasons means you will Gladly, Joyfully, and with Great Desire, PRAISE THE LORD ALL THE DAY LONG. PERIOD. This is not blindly hoping "it will work", but FULLY KNOWING THAT YOUR SACRIFICE OF PRAISE IS PLEASING TO THE LORD, as He even more builds your Faith and Obedience to an even greater "level". This thing can "snowball" to such an exuberance that absolutely nothing can stop you from doing this. At this moment in time, even Satan can only stand on the sidelines shaking his head and wait for this Wonderful Moment to ease up as you "come down" from this "High" of Praising the Lord with Great Delight and Abundant Joy. THEN, he'll jump in and try to tell you it wasn't real and you need to live in the REAL world. He can't stop it, but he will try to diminish it down to, "Let's not try that one again". Remember, this kind of Obedient Praise is above the "glass ceiling" of situations and circumstances where Satan has no control and can only wait for you to "mess up", so he can try again to bring you down a notch or two. When you do have these times of Praise, enjoy them and keep on "doing them", as their will be more, and more often, as your Faith and Obedience grows. And this is only one of many aspects of a Joy-filled Life in Christ. "Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee":... Psalm 40:16, and Greatly, Be Blessed.
