PRAISE GLORIFIES GODEvangeline Paul Dhinakaran

He who sacrifices thank offerings honors Me    (Psalm 50:23)

The Dhinakarans Dearly beloved,

David the Psalmist praises God, saying, “I will praise You, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders.” (Psalm 9:1). When we tell of the marvelous works of the Lord, His grace and blessings will keep increasing in us.

My father Dr. D.G.S. Dhinakaran used to often say this – “Whenever you share the Word of God, share your testimony. Then the Lord will bless you still more. That’s why whenever we give messages, we never fail to share about the things that the Lord has miraculously done for us. As a result, He increases His grace upon us abundantly.

In Psalm 105:2, the Psalmist says, “Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts.” He further says, “Remember the wonders He has done, His miracles” (Psalm 105:5). According to these Bible verses, whenever we talk with one another, let us remember His marvelous works and tell about them to our brothers and sisters without inhibition; let us edify one another.

Let us never forget what the Lord has done for us. We should testify about all the good things that He has done for us from our childhood. It would edify others and increase His grace upon us.

We read in I Corinthians 11:24,25: “The Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’"

Yes, we should take part in the Holy Communion with much reverence to God, remembering the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus for us. When we magnify Him saying, ‘Lord I praise You,’ He will come down mightily.

Dear ones, the Bible says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Colossians 3:23). It also says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6). Think of Him alone and tell of His marvelous works. Then He will fill your heart with His peace which surpasses all understanding. He will grant you victory in everything.

The Lord says, “He who sacrifices thank offerings honors Me” (Psalm 50:23). Whenever God performs a miracle for you, express your gratitude in return by sharing about His great goodness to others. In this way, His name will be glorified among them. Then He will be pleased with you and bless you in all things.

Prayer:

Loving Lord Jesus,

You have given wonderful blessings to me. Help me to remember all Your miracles and thank You with a grateful heart. Help me to share about Your great goodness to others. Let Your grace and blessings increase in my life.

In Your matchless name I pray,

Amen.
