• “I was poor in the midst of riches, and ready to perish with hunger near a table plentifully spread and a continual feast. Oh, Beauty, ancient and new! Why have I known thee so late? Alas, I sought thee where thou wast not, and did not seek thee where thou wast…” – Madame Guyon

Two Reasons to Praise by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/20/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why were you created?

“To try and make the world a better place.”

“I was born to shop!”

“I think I really want to serve others in my life.”

Nancy: Do you ever wonder what your purpose is on this earth? I’ll tell you. We were made to bring God pleasure. That’s why we praise Him: because we were created to do it.

There’s another reason we should praise God. Praise is the number-one occupation in heaven. The apostle John sees a vision of heaven in Revelation 4 and 5. He sees more than 100 million angels who have one full-time responsibility: to worship the One who sits on the throne and the Lamb at His right hand.

When we praise the Lord, it’s like a dress rehearsal for what we’ll spend an eternity doing in heaven.

How much “practice” are you getting for that eternal concert? Are you doing what you were created to do? Are you praising God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “My soul was filled and overwhelmed with light, and love, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and seemed just ready to go away from the body. I could scarcely refrain from expressing my joy aloud, in the midst of the service. I had in the mean time, an overwhelming sense of the glory of God, as the Great Eternal All, and of the happiness of having my own will entirely subdued to his will. I knew that the foretaste of glory, which I then had in my soul, came from him, that I certainly should go to him, and should, as it were, drop into the Divine Being, and be swallowed up in God.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
