Why we give praise?
One of the most important protocols of approaching God is in giving thanks to Him. But why is it important?
It isn’t just a lip service that God wants but a real thanksgiving. It isn’t just the words of “thank you” that God expects. God expects more than mere words.
God wants our attitude to be right before Him. God wants our recognition of our position as people and his position as God.
We can’t approach God in a proud spirit that come to scrutinize God. Or we can’t come to God as if we are equal friends (yeqolo Guwadenya). We can’t approach God criticizing His decisions and the way He handles our situation.
Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2
We can’t come to God as if we are trying to receive from God for the very first time. We can’t approach God that the world is scrambling down if He doesn’t do something. God want us to believe and not be in haste.
God wants us to recognize that He is in control. We have to acknowledge that He has been gracious to us all the time.
The attitude of humility and thankfulness toward Him puts God in the right position to give and that puts us in the right position to receive.
