What does it means to give your all? Dictionary meaning All: 1.The whole amount, as much as possible. 4. Every, 6. Nothing but.
Have we praised God with our whole heart, as much as possible, with every part of our being and nothing but? There’s no time like the present to give God our all because He gave His all when He sent his Son Jesus to die for all of our sins. That is enough to praise and worship God for the rest of our lives.
We’ve all heard of the meaning of glory as splendor, high esteem, beauty and to exalt.
However, another meaning for glory; height of prosperity or achievement, spot light
I am rejoicing because this let’s me know that when we praise God with our all,God will put us on display so people can see the goodness of God. That includes God prospering us not only monetary, but spiritually, and emotionally. We become whole and complete. That sounds like heaven on earth.
David was a man after God’s own heart because he worshiped and praise God with his all.
Psalm 103 David says Bless the Lord, Oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless His Holy name. Bless the Lord Oh my soul and forget not all His benefits.
Notice the word “all” in Psalms 103, David praise God with everything in him. Even when David was in pain He praised God.
Psalm 50:14-15 NIV says 14 “Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High,15 and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
Hallelujah! When we choose to praise God during our pain, God will deliver us. His ears are open to the cry of His people. What an awesome God we serve!
There are a few examples in the bible that showed when people praised with their all and how the glory fell after.
Paul and Silas Acts 16:25-26 25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.
Noticed it says the prisoners heard it. Paul and Silas put God on display, God freed them and the guard asked “What must I do to be saved?” When people see God at work in you it makes them desire what you have.
Joshua and the Jericho walls: Joshua 6:20 20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
Not only did the walls come down, they received gold; that is the glory that means prosperity. When God blesses you, he does exceedingly, abundantly, and above all that we could ask or think.
Blowing the trumpet and shouting with all you have is like when you go to a concert or ball game. Most people scream, shout, clap, and dance to show how much they enjoy and admire them.
We can do that for the creator of the universe who breathed life into us and if it wasn’t for God we would be lost and in darkness. That is enough to shout and leap for joy.
I encourage anyone to start reading Psalm 95-100 and Psalm 145-150. Those chapters deal with praise. It is sowing the seed of praise in your spirit to take you to another level .
My favorite is Psalm 67:5-6 5 Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You.6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us.7 God shall bless us,And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
Praise brings increase in every area of our lives.
Praise God with your all and the glory will fall!
