It’s Who I Am–It’s What I Do!

Praise!  It’s who I am and it’s what I do!  If we practice the presence of God, we can begin to walk in praise.  When we walk in praise, we can then say ‘it’s who I am, it’s what I do.’ Practice the presence?  Yes.  Just as a physician practices medicine, we must practice the presence of God.  That is, we worship Him early and often (like the Florida folks vote).  Practice?  Yes.  But not in a mechanical, robotic sense.  God is alive, fresh and exciting and our worship should be the same.  If we cultivate the habit of walking in praise, our day will be peaceful–or at the very least, much less stressful.  For He (God) will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him (Isaiah 26:3).  When we walk in praise, we’re not quick to ‘go off.’  We begin to understand that praise is comely for the upright (Ps. 33:1).  That is, it fits who we are.  Likewise, we understand that blessing and cursing should not come from the same mouth (James 3:10).  And so we begin to use our mouths to build up and not tear down, to speak life and not death, to change systems and environments for the better.  When we walk in praise, we won’t have to work up a praise with 2 fast songs and 1 slow song.  Praise overflows regardless of the song.  Praise overflows even when there is no song.  It resides on the inside–yet it is free to manifest itself on the outside.  Praise–it’s who I am, it’s what I do; and I’m not ashamed!  “Praise God from whom all blessings flow!”
