It is significant that every glimpse we are given into Heaven, praise is the dominant activity. One day each of God's children will join the multitudes of saints gathered around God's throne to worship Him in His presence. It is wise to get into practice down here so we will feel at home in Heaven's activity of praise. One key verse related to praise and the consequence of worship provides remarkable insight: "But the people who know their God shall be strong and do exploits" (Daniel 11:32). We are to praise God for who He is and there is only one source of information to guide our knowledge and understanding—the Bible. Worship is our response to who God is—His attributes, His character, His essence. In fact, prayer reveals God. Prayer is my response to who God is—whether it is adoration, confession, thanksgiving, petition, or intercession.
My prayer is that the studies on praise will bless you as you study and that you will be a better worshiper as you put into practice what you learn.
Yours in Calvary love,
