Praise involves the intellect as we think of God's majesty, and the marvels of what He has made. Praise involves the emotions as we feel the grace and mercy of God in our lives, and as we are filled with joy. Praise involves the will as we choose to fulfill our purpose for being, which is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Praise gets our whole being involved in God's whole being. The subject of praise is so vast that when you study it you feel like you are mining a mountain of gold with a spoon. There is no way to get the job done.
But as marvelous as it is there are problems with it, and maybe some of you have the same hindrance to praise as C. Lewis did. In his Reflections On The Psalms Lewis wrote, "When I first began to draw near to belief in God and even for some time after it had been given to me, I found a stumbling block in the demand so clamorously made by all religious people that we should praise God: Still more in the suggestion that God Himself demanded it. We all despise the man who demands continued assurance of his own virtues, intelligence or delightfulness; we despise still more the crowd of people round every dictator, every millionaire, every celebrity, who gratifies that demand.
Thus a picture, at once ludicrous and horrible, both of God and of His worshipers, threatened to appear in my mind. As Lewis gave deeper thought to the matter he discovered that men by nature praise all that they value and enjoy. They praise their leaders, their team, their nation, their friends, their favorite TV programs and their favorite anything or anyone.
Life is full of praise, for that is how men communicate their values and their loves. Where there is no praise there is no love. Where is love there will be praise. Songs of praise revolve around man's love for the opposite sex, and for God, for these are his two strongest loves. Augustine said many centuries ago, "Singing comes from joy, but if we observe more carefully, it comes from love, you want to sing about what you love. Praise is a happy love song. It is a rejoicing because God is present and our relationship is one of love and enjoyment.
Praise is itself a part of the enjoyment of God, and it is often the pathway by which we enter God's presence. Praise and presence are linked together as one. Lack of praise means loss of presence. Fellowship is the mutual enjoyment of one another's presence, which leads to praise. If we enjoy God's presence, we will praise Him, and if we praise Him, we are enjoying His presence. When C. Lewis came to see that our praise of God opens us up to His presence, he changed his mind. He saw that God does not crave our praise just for Himself. He wants to love and guide us, and He cannot do it if we are closed to His presence.
By means of praise we open the door of our minds and hearts to God's presence. When you praise someone on a human level you are focusing on them and their values at that moment and not just yourself. So when you praise God you are looking at Him, His glory, and His will.
In prayer you are, more often than not, focusing on yourself and your needs, but in praise you are other centered, and this is the key to relationship. Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. You do not get this done by the give me routine of the typical prayer.
You do this by means of the giving of praise. Praise is the one thing you can give God that He can appreciate. Usually we think there is nothing we can give to God, and so we approach God always as the Giver and seldom think of Him as a Receiver. What can we possibly give Him? We can give God the sacrifice of praise. In Heb. But Jesus did not eliminate the sacrifice of praise. It was a vital part of worship in the Old Testament, and it is no less vital to the New Testament saint.
Praise is something that the saints of all ages have in common. We need to ask, what can I put into the worship service that will please God? Worship is to be mutually beneficial to God and His people, and this will only happen through praise and adoration. Praise is the fun and enjoyable side of our relationship to God.
