Praise Feast – Day 1 (Monday, November 16, 2009)

First – my apologies for this being late. Two soccer games yesterday as coach took up my afternoon and I let this slip by me. I will have the rest out the evening before you need them.

For those of you who were not at Fellowship yesterday, this week’s challenge is to go on a PRAISE FEAST. At 7 each day I am challenging you to spend 7 minutes praising God. Praise means to declare the truth about God to the God it is true of. There are no requests, no intercessions, no personal agendas in praise. Just declaring to God who he is and how you love him. If 7 minutes is too long, start with 70 seconds, but give God the praise due his name this week.

Praise the Lord in His Sanctuary – a place designated for worship.
Meaning praise the Lord for his proper place in your life.
Spend today’s 7 minutes focusing on the truths about God in his relationship to you.

What words describe his rightful place in your life?
Lord, King, Ruler, Gracious Father, Redeemer, etc.

Give thought and time to this truth in your life.
Scriptures to Help you Praise Today
2 Sam. 2:22-24, Psalm 92, Job 19:25-27, Psalm 19

When looking for Scriptures to praise the character of God, look at the openings of the epistles (or letters) in the New Testament. Basically Romans-3 John. These greetings often include deep and great truths about the character of God.

Romans 1:7, 2 Cor. 1:1-4, Galatians 1:1-5, Eph. 1:1-3, 1 Thess. 1:1-4 (and so on, some have them some don’t but a great way to look for truths to praise God for.)

Songs for Praise Today
Probably my personal favorite about praising God in his sanctuary – Better is One Day by Matt Redman
