I looked at the spiritual trend of this generation and I noticed this one great mistake we are making – Praising God in sin. The question is: How can a God whose eyes is too pure to behold iniquity (Habakkuk 1:13) accept the praises coming from a sinful man?! Today, everyone is singing praises, dancing praises, composing praise songs and playing praise songs but my concern is: How many of those praises do reach up to God in heaven?!
Praises and worship exercises are spiritual sacrifice that are meant to go up to God as a sweet smelling savour, they are meant to be offered unto God out of a pure heart and free spirit. Praise is both a prophetic and prayer instrument and can be used to command a great Power and Authority from heaven if it is done the right way. Therefore, I think it is more wise if we focus on the kind of heart and life that is offering praises to God than the praises itself. What profit is in praising God when God does not even look at you not to mention hear you!
You sang praises and danced with the same body you are using to commit fornication, adultery, sexual immoralities and perversions – How would God accept such a dirty and polluted sacrifice from you! You stand in the church singing and praising but your heart is so full of pride, envy, anger, hatred, bitterness, competition, lusts and worldliness – How would your praise reach heaven since your heart is wrong and you are not worshipping in the Spirit and in truth! Those who praised God in the ancient times were not polluted vessels, they will praise God and see Him come down!
GOD ALREADY HAS ENOUGH ANGELS PRAISING HIM IN HEAVEN, HE IS NOT SO HUNGRY OF PRAISE THAT HE WOULD ACCEPT ANYHOW PRAISE!! IF YOU OFFER PRAISES, WHY NOT DO IT THE RIGHT WAY?!!! Be wise. Amen.
