4 I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. — Psalm 63:4 NLT
God made each of us a little different from everyone else. These differences are not just physical, they continue through every part of us. Each of us has a different learning capacity and we react to things and situations differently. Some of us are much more vocal and enthusiastic in expressing our joy and excitement. Some of us see great things happen and we are awestruck and quiet in our observations while others may scream loudly or talk unceasingly trying to describe or explain what is happening. Praising God is necessary for Christians whether we do it quietly or with loud exclamations of joy and praise. We can become so overpowered by the presence of God that we fall to our knees and just weep. God understands it all and accepts it graciously. He made us different so that our praise to Him would be like listening to an orchestra play a great masterpiece. While that may be just noise to some people, others are thrilled and uplifted. So, however we choose to do it, let’s just praise God continually for all of His love, goodness, mercy and grace.
