Have you ever been at work, was having a great day, and wanted to shout praises to God. I have had this feeling often, but worried about what my employer might do? Freedom of worship is support by our constitution. We are free to worship anywhere we please, and no one can stop us. I love America because we have the freedom to do whatever we want. Just think about how many people were killed because of how they decided to worship. I love to thank God every chance that I get. But, I am a believer of praying in the closet, and being awarded openly. Matthew 6:5-6 states, “5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” So I decided to give some tips on how to get your praise on at work. Sometimes we need his strength and grace to make it through the day. We have an awesome God who we can call upon anytime. We can call him, no one has to know, and we can still receive his grace and blessing. So, here are three tips on how to praise God at work.
Those who forsake instruction praise the wicked, but those who heed it resist them. Proverbs 28:4. Obey him. We cannot afford to be Sunday Christians. We got to show God’s grace and mercy Sunday through Saturday. If we open our hearts, God will use us to fulfill his will. You can help your coworkers, supervisors, or others by letting his light shine through you.
You can praise through prayer. The best prayer is the one that praises God for what he has done. We do not have to always call on him to do things for us. We can call on him to say thank you. We can tell him how much we need and love him. If we have five minutes, we can close our eyes and pray silently. You can never pray too much. If you are like me, you need prayer.
Lastly, you can study his word. This is a form of praise. I feel when you concentrate on God’s word, you are praising him. You are keeping all of the worldly situations out of head, and concentrate on God. You can try to memorize verses. You know my favorite is Psalm 27. The Lord is my light, and my salvation. Who shall I fear? When I think of this verse, I feel like I am praising him because he is my light. There are Bible apps that you can put on your phone, tablets, or laptops. There are websites and blogs that have Bible reading plans. You can also Christian information on social media like Twitter and FaceBook.
So when the spirit hits you, praise the Lord because he is worthy of our praise.
