Praise & Worship - the key to the Presence of God

Psalm 34:1 "I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth." What a profound statement. It speaks of a lifestyle of praise. Continually means always, ongoing, day to day, lifestyle of praise.

There is a difference between worship and praise. <strong>Praise</strong> is the thing we do when victory comes. Praise is extolling the wonderful blessing of God that He has poured upon us. Praise is something we usually do together with others in the Body of Christ. Praise takes us into the courts of the most High God.

Psalm 99:5 "Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy."

Worship, on the other hand is an intimate thing. It is something that comes from deep within. Worship is an attitude of the heart. Worship is telling God how much we love him. It is adoration coming from our hearts and expressed through our lips, thought and actions. Worship is something I do alone before the presence of God. It is stepping over from the outer courts into the holy of holies. Worship takes me into the very sanctuary of God. His awesome presence.
