It is worthy to praise, adore, appreciate, thank, honour, exalt and glorify the Omnipotent God because His mercy remains forever. God is the one and the only one we have. God is the king that has been doing things for us.
Psalm 100:3 says: “…know that the Lord is God, it is He who made us, and we are his, we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.” God knows the way we are.
People of the world look at human faces; the way Samuel looked at faces to appoint a king for Israel among the children of Jesse. Samuel 16:7. “But the Lord said to Samuel. Do not consider his appear-ance or his height for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” God is the being to worship, serve and bow down our heads for. Some people would say they are bowing down their heads for idols. Who is the idol?
An unquestionable God who asked Jeremiah if anything is too hard for Him (Jeremiah 32:27). He made a man to be blind from birth so that His work might be displayed in the man’s life. (John 9:1-5). He restored the sight of the blind man and made the lame to work. All these were done by the Almighty God.
He is so magnanimous and great that the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 6:13-14 “Con-sider what God has done, who can straighten what he has made crooked? When times are bad, consider God has made the one as well as the other…” God lives in both the light and darkness. He owns the good and the bad. What-ever position or situation a person finds himself or herself is with the consent of God. Exodus 4:11-12 says: “The Lord said to him (Moses), who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or make him blind? Is it not I, the Lord.” Also Amos 3:6 says “…when disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it”
Furthermore, Isaiah 45:7 says: “I form the light and create darkness. I make peace and create evil, I the Lord, do all these things.” Brethren it becomes pertinent for people to comprehend that it is God and there is no other. He said in Isaiah 45:5 that “I am the Lord, and there is no other apart from me there is no God”. God says He is the beginning and the end (Alpha and Omega).
Therefore it is required for people to praise and exalt God because He does what he likes. Imagine the story of King Ahab of Israel who wanted to go into war with Aram and takeover the city. In fact, God wanted to deal with king Ahab for his deeds. He made all the prophets of God king Ahab consulted before embarking on warfare with king of Aram.
