Hallelujah: The highest praise...

Thank God it's Friday... This has been a long but blessed week, it has had it's ups and down but God has brought us through to the end of the week. Let's take time out to praise God. In today's scripture for reflection the psalmist writes a song of praise (hallelujah).

Psalm 111 1 -10 Hallelujah! I give thanks to God with everything I've got—

Wherever good people gather, and in the congregation. God's works are so great, worth A lifetime of study—endless enjoyment! Splendor and beauty mark his craft; His generosity never gives out. His miracles are his memorial— This God of Grace, this God of Love. He gave food to those who fear him, He remembered to keep his ancient promise. He proved to his people that he could do what he said: Hand them the nations on a platter—a gift! He manufactures truth and justice; All his products are guaranteed to last— Never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof. All that he makes and does is honest and true: He paid the ransom for his people, He ordered his Covenant kept forever. He's so personal and holy, worthy of our respect. The good life begins in the fear of God Do that and you'll know the blessing of God. His Hallelujah lasts forever!

Today and this weekend let's praise God with our all. The scripture is pretty much self explanatory, but i would challenge us not only to praise exuberantly, but to pray fiercely, evangelize radically, and expect God to react with overwhelming favor and blessings.
As I always say delivered people are dangerous~ let's live out or deliverance in bold new ways starting this weekend.


Be Well everyone, until Tuesday- Love Pastor J.

Even though Hallelujah is an awesome Praise to GOD [THE FATHER],its still not the highest praise, in fact according to the HOLY GHOST the HIGHEST praise to GOD [THE FATHER] IS THE PRAISE THAT COMES FROM THE HEART,be it HALLELUJAH or just plain thank you LORD. You see the FATHER DEALS WITH THE INTENTS OF THE HEART; many are the time that man says thing that we think are sincere, but god sees that the individuals heart is far from HIM!!! So the highest praise is the one that comes from the heart, GOD [THE FATHER] INHABITS THOSE PRAISES. In the word the JESUS watched the offering as the rich and well to do put in their offerings and saw a woman who gave two pennies and said that she had given more than the rest of them and explained that while it was nothing wrong with what the rich did,but they gave from their abundance, while she [being poor] GAVE ALL SHE HAD and the praise from the heart are not just words, but the FATHER sees it as giving HIM ALL YOU HAVE.

Then the Levites, Jeshua, and Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodijah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said, Stand up and bless the Lord your God for ever and ever: and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.
Nehemiah 9:5 KJV
