As followers of God set about to do what He asks us to do, praise is the engine that sustains and keeps our eye on Him.
We will be praising Him for eternity, it is the one activity that we do on earth that we will be doing in heaven.
God sits on His throne and yet takes time to regard the matters happening on earth. He sees the poor and raises them up. He takes us up to be like princes. Where there is seemingly nothing that can be done, God takes the death and turns it into life bringing joy wherever His hands touches.
