When did you last give God praise?

When did you last give God praise?
When did you last raise your voice in true worship?
Not vain, controlled, forced,
The Truth and Spirit kind of worship.
Does God deserve your praise?
For His son,
Who faced death that you may boldly take on life
When you were soaked in sin and covered in guilt
Now you are redeemed, you dance on the stage of salvation
Yet you forget the one who made the show.
You no longer wake up in the morning with shouts of

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

You no longer receive your meals with a sense and content, care and the strings of that beautiful tune

Some have food but cannot eat
Some can eat but have no food
We have food and we can eat
Glory be to thee oh Lord.

Have you forgotten that you have been ordained for a life of praise and gratitude?
Have you forgotten that God broke your chains to loose your praise?
You remember that song Óh that men?

Oh that men would praise the Lord
Oh that men would praise the Lord
For His goodness and for His wonderful works
To the children of men, to the children of men
He has broken the gates of brass and cut the bars of iron asunder.

Oh how you have forgotten those days of pure consecration
When you rushed with excitement to the altar for a cleansing
When all life meant was a time with the most high
When the focus alone was heaven
When the desire was for the coming of Christ
Now you are tired of waiting
His praise has gone sour in your mouth
His worship is diluted with doubts
His purity baked in your guilt
Hiding his praise, Yet sipping on his goodness
Complaining of lack, yet breathing life
Complaining of stagnancy yet walking on two legs
Complaining of sad days yet with eyes wide open you behold the dawning of a new day.
God does everything good yet man sees everything bad.
You have forgotten the days when you sang

Everywhere He went, He was doing good,
Almighty Jesus, Healed the leper,
When cripple saw Him,
They started walking, Everywhere He went my God was doing good.

I’m not asking you to praise today,
I’m just asking you to think,
Oh man think.
Think of the reason,
The reason why you live,
The reason why you were called
The reason why you were created.
God can raise stones,
He can call trees,
He can summon the sun,
He can move the moon
Oh for his praise.
Think not oh man for a second
That you are His only source of praise,
Think not oh man
Start praising from a place of knowledge, not a place of right
If you were ordained for praise why then do you not praise?
There is someone asking now?

Why do we sing?
When we lift our voice to Jesus
What do we really mean?
Someone may be wondering
When we sing a song,
At times we may be crying
When nothing’s even wrong

I sing because I’m happy
I sing because I’m free,
His eyes is on the sparrow

That’s the reason why I sing.
