3 Reasons to Praise

I have been thinking a lot about praise lately. Why is praise important? Why do we need to praise? I believe there are so many reasons to praise God.

The bible is filled with scriptures about praise. Today, I share three of those scripture verses with you and the reasons to praise.


1. We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. Psalm 75:1

We need praise God because He is God. He does so many wonderful deeds. God is near to us.


2. You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely. –Psalm 59:17

We need to praise God because He is our fortress. We can always rely on Him. God will never let us down.


3. “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.” –Psalm 30:11-12

We need to praise God because it puts our focus on Him instead of our circumstances. No matter what is happening in our lives, we can have God’s joy. And that’s a reason to praise!



Praising God is so important. It can look different for everyone. What ways do you enjoy praising? Do you have a favorite verse about praise? If so, I would love to hear it.

I love to praise throughout my day. Often it’s just listening to worship music. My favorite song right now is Who You Say I Am by Hillsong. It’s powerful! What is your favorite praise song right now? Please share in the comments below.

P.S. Are you connected with me on Facebook? Every Thursday, I post two praise breaks. They are songs I’m loving right now. Click HERE to like my page so you can join in the fun.
