Selected Verses:

Psalm 63:5-6.  My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: 6When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

Psalm 34:1.  I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

John 4:23.  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.


…thought when I praise the Lord, “Well, what good is it to God if I praise Him, or if I don’t praise Him?”  And yet, that is something to be very, very grateful for: that God accepts our praises—that He wants them.  And He accepts our worship, and He wants our worship: “The Father seeketh such to worship Him.”  That ought to put a stamp of glory on our meetings when we come together.  And it ought to quicken our hearts’ beat when we say, “Hallelujah!” 

It is so different in Pentecost, praising the Lord.  You feel something.  There’s an unction associated with it, something that comes down from heaven.  And often, we recognize the joy of the Lord Jesus when we are happy.  Now, when I read here, “His greatness is unsearchable,” I feel like melting in His presence—just to think of what we know of His greatness is so unsearchable and so unspeakable—so unspeakably wonderful.  Oh, what a God is our God!

Selected Quotes:

speaker icon Have you come to worship Him?  Do you worship Him?  Looking down from heaven, is He satisfied with your worship?  And why is it that God wants our praises and our worship?  Why, because that opens the door to Him to do something for us.  His love cannot be satisfied until He can bestow His love upon us, until He can communicate Himself to us.  And that, after all, is the reason for His command to us, “His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

speaker iconThe Father seeketh such who worship Him in spirit and in truth.”  And why?  Why, because He wants “rivers of living water” to issue forth from your inmost being.  And that’s the only way in which God can bestow His love upon me.

speaker icon Such a marvelous arrangement that God has made between the sinner and Himself: just by faith in His great love, because His love is active—is so active that “He gave His only begotten Son.”  And now the door is opened wide into communion with God.

speaker icon And to think that He accepts my praises—not only accepts them but He creates them Himself.  And He wants my worship, and He creates my worship.  And it’s only my unbelief that robs me of this God.
