Psalm 47:7 (KJV) For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
Beloved, I AM King of all the earth. Understand who I AM. Understand that I AM sovereign. Understand that I AM God. And with full understanding of who I AM, look to Me and give praise. Extol My name throughout the nations. Glorify My name in all the earth. For I AM worthy.
I don’t require praise to feed My vanity or puff Me up with pride. It is simply a joyous acknowledgement of truth. Praise is a way to help you remind yourself of who I AM. It also is a declaration, and helps inspire others to trust in Me.
Praise also acts as a victory dance – announcing to the enemy that he is defeated, in some cases even before that victory has manifested. This makes praise a form of spiritual warfare. So wield this joyous weapon with firm assurance of who I AM. May it pour out from a heart of understanding. May it magnify Me in your heart. And may it declare to all the earth that I AM King.
