Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people… Psalm 149:3-4
If I never had another reason to praise, this should be enough. God takes pleasure in His people when they are dancing and singing to the praise of His name!
We struggle when we make praise and worship about us; when we seek our own pleasure or benefit rather than the pleasure of God. Praise must not be based on my feelings or circumstances. It is based only on His being worthy.
Don’t (just) praise Him because you feel good. Don’t (just) praise Him because you want to feel good. Don’t (just) praise for your pleasure. Praise Him for His pleasure.
He loves it when you sing and dance to the praise of His name!
