23 But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.” — Psalm 50-23 NLT
God tells us that giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors Him. We are also told to offer a continual sacrifice of praise to God, to do good and to share with those in need.
15 Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. 16 And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. — Hebrews 13:15, 16 NLT
We need to take time each day to praise God. It not only pleases God, but it is uplifting to our spirits as well. Praise and thanksgiving feed the spirit and the soul. After we have read His Word and prayed, we still need to just rest in His arms and give Him glory for all that He does for us each day. Jesus loves to sing over us and He loves to hear us sing to Him.
17 For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” — Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
A part of doing good to others is encouraging them and cheering them up. Nothing can cheer us up like hearing a great song of praise. Rest and let Jesus sing you a love song.
