Praise is a vehicle of faith which brings us into the presence and power of God! Praise and worship is the “gate-pass” which allows us to enter the sacredness of His glory. The psalmist writes, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalms 100:4).
Bible uses the word ‘praise’ in 214 verses? That’s almost as many times as we find the word ‘love’ in Scripture (311 times), and it doesn't even count the other versions of the word like 'praises' or 'praising'. In God’s eyes, how vital praise must be?
