Jesus reminded us of the importance of praising Him in Matthew 21:15-16. When church leaders and Pharisees refuse to praise Him, God will provide the praise:
But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read,
‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have perfected praise’? Matthew 21:15-16 (Psalm 8:2)
There have been many books written about the power we will have if we praise God and this power was seen in Atlanta when a precious child was released by his abductor because he began to praise God.
There have been many books written about the power we will have if we praise God.
Thank you, Father God for your word and for providing a Christian woman, Ms Bateman, who cared enough to take Willie to church where Willie could read the written word and come to know the Living Word. Thank you for Willie Myrick’s faith and testimony. Thank you for Hezekiah Walker who wrote the song. Thank you for bringing it to Willie’s mind and giving Willie the words to sing. Thank you for demonstrating to us the truth of the Bible and the power of praising You! All praise and every praise belongs to You. Amen
