The rewards of praise. When praise is true or sincere, the rewards are great (this word is such an understatement). Praising God for things unseen (faith) gives me comfort and peace. It takes all my worries away…that things will work out in my favor…not my way BUT God’s way. Praise open doors that were once closed. Praise finds/makes a path when there was none. Praise makes the impossible possible and the unbelievable believable. In conclusion, there is VICTORY in praise.
Praising God for things seen also gives me a great feeling. I feel joy or happiness when I get that acceptance letter (for a job or school opportunity), when my bank account is full (so debts are cleared), and when I receive the rewards of being obedient (successfully accomplishing all tasks given). Here, praise is like a monetary transaction for a business deal in our relationship with God.
