Praise means to sing, to tell off, to give or to confess. It is an outward expression not just to God only but for others around you to know that you are expressing your joy and gratitude to God. Praise also is what we offer unto God in acknowledgement of his excellent being. We offer it to God as a supernatural being that we cannot understand. God is unfathomable, unimaginable and incomprehensible yet very reliable and everything you can think of. It also means to glorify and to give Him recognition that He deserves. It is a joyful thanking. This is to say there must be joy in praise. When you are praising and there is no gratitude it shows on your body language. It is adoration to God. It is also the celebration of God’s goodness. We must praise God for everything, for everything He created depicts how loving He is.

All the things He created have their different needs and time to function. None of them interferes with the other. The moon shines at its own time likewise the sun and stars. Everything works together for good and everything happens for good.
