Praise the Lord!
Psalm 150:2 -
Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
The Hebrew word translated as praise is the word 'halal' and is together with 'Yahh' (Lord) forms the word 'Alleluia' which is 'Praise the Lord'.
The word 'halal' has been translated in scriptures (AV) to many words but mainly the word has the meaning which is 'to boast'.
When we praise God we are actually telling the world and the Heavens how proud we are of our God. This is only possible when we realize how great our God is. Many of us may have first hand experienced His glory in our lives, but even if you do not have a great testimony, just look around and you will see a million reasons to praise God.
Are you proud of how great our God is then lift your hands up and give a shout of praise to God.
The translations of the word 'halal' (AV)
rage 2, (does not fury but being crazy)
So be crazy and proud of Who our God is and just throw out all your inhibitions and praise the Lord. You can dance, stand still, go on your all fours or do whatever your heart feels but something that the world knows how great our God is. Praising God is not to tell the Lord how great He is, He know more than us how great He is, but we praise God so as to tell the world and the Heavens how great our God is.
