God Smiles When We Praise
Few things feel better than receiving heartfelt praise and appreciation from someone else. God loves it, too. He smiles when we express our adoration and gratitude to him. Noah's life brought pleasure to God because he lived with a heart of praise and thanksgiving. Noah's first act after surviving the flood was to express his thanks to God by offering a sacrifice. (Genesis 8:20) We praise God for who he is, and we thank God for what he has done. (Hebrews 13:15; Psalm 116:17) David said, "I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the Lord." (Psalm 69:30-31 NIV) An amazing thing happens when we offer praise and thanksgiving to God. When we enjoy what God has done for us, and when we express that enjoyment to God, it brings him joy - but it also increases our joy.
We praise you and thank you for who you are and your unconditionally love. Teach us to love the way you love.
Team Wade is praying for you ❤️👊
