Today’s verse tells us that we shouldn’t just come any old way to God. We shouldn’t come empty-handed to the King of kings and the Lord of lords. What can we bring? What do we have that’s worthy of Almighty God? Our praise. Our thanksgiving. Our worship. We are to enter His gates with an offering from our hearts of adoration, because He is worthy!
Sinners and saints alike have the honour and privilege to enter boldly into God’s presence. Scripture says that we can come to His throne of grace and receive His mercy. Because He loves us, He has given us unlimited access to Himself 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Today, please understand, praise isn’t just about singing songs on Sabbath or Sunday mornings. Praise is the expression of gratefulness to God for all He has done. Praise gets God’s attention. Praise is a powerful tool in the life of the believer because God inhabits our praises! When we enter His presence, He enters our circumstances. When God shows up, the enemy must flee! Hallelujah! So this weekend enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and open the door for Him to move on your behalf!
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”Psalm 100:4, NKJV
Pray With Me
Yahweh, I come to You with thanksgiving in my heart. Father, I enter into Your courts with praise. God, today I declare that You are good, and Your mercy endures forever! Please have Your way in me by the power of Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
