My praise shall be of You in the great assembly;
I will pay My vows before those who fear Him
Do people see you giving praise to God? They shouldn’t see you do it every time you do. You need to have an intimate personal relationship with your Savior. Jesus says that when you pray, go into your room and close the door. (Check out Matthew 6:6) However, that doesn’t mean you should keep God a secret. The Jews were supposed to give light to the world of who God really is. They were supposed to be His ambassadors to the world for His glory. We shouldn’t pray so that others think we’re spiritual, but we should pray so that we can go out and show people who God really is.
Think of yourself as a pitcher in the hands of a waiter. The waiter goes into the back to fill you up with cold refreshing water. Then he takes you out to pour into glasses to be served. When you near empty, He takes you back to get refilled. Let your prayer times be when you get filled and let your times outside your room be when you pour that life giving water out on others. Even Jesus sought time to get alone with the Father. What makes you think that you don’t need to. But when you thank God, thank Him so others know He is worthy to be praised. Let people know that He does answer prayers and He does participate in our daily lives. If you make a promise to God, keep it. But it is better to not promise. The Bible says that we should let our yes be yes and our no be no. (Matthew 5:37)
So now that you are alone, pray that God would fill you up. Then go out and share what you have with others.
Ready… Set… Go!!!
