God deserves your praise

We worship God, not because we feel inspired, but because God is worthy. If we make our worship dependent on feelings, lots of days we won't feel like it. But God is always worthy of praise.

One practice the Bible recommends over and over is to recount God's deeds on a regular basis. That way you remember what God has done for you in the past when times are difficult in the present. Remembering what God has done in the past can give you hope for the future.

Some related Bible verses to read:

  • Psalm 118:17-29
  • Acts 2:11
  • 1 Chronicles 16:8-9

We worship because God is worthy, not to please others. Sometimes when we worship, others don't appreciate it. Don't let that stop you. (See 2 Samuel 6:12-22.)

A few ideas from the Bible of how to involve your body in worship:

  • Psalm 47:1-2
  • Acts 3:8
  • Psalm 150:4-5
  • Psalm 63:4
  • Psalm 32:11
  • Psalm 95:6
  • 1 Chronicles 29:20
