Pastor Sydney Ropp had talked about various words in Hebrew with talking about praise:
Shabach– To properly address in a loud tone
Toda– Extension of the hand
Tehillim– Singing a hymn of praise
Zamar– To strike a stringed instrument with your fingers
Yadah– To hold out the hand
Barak– To kneel in worship
Halal– To be clear, to shine, to boast, not hidden
Pastor Sydney mentioned sometimes we come into service and we are slow to enter into worship and praise. We don’t feel like it because of the cares of the world or burdens that we carry. Our feelings should not not dictate our actions. Love is not a feeling, it is a choice. You have to put in what is of the Lord so that what is of the Lord comes out.
Pastor Sydney referenced multiple bible verses:
Psalm 33 Psalm 46 Psalm 63:1 Psalm 66 Psalm 34 Psalm 81 Psalm 95 Psalm 98 Psalm 100 Psalm 103 Psalm 108 Psalm 111 Psalm 113 Psalm 117 Psalm 134 Psalm 135 Psalm 146 Psalm 147 Psalm 150
Praise is present and lovely. Think about when we should praise, where we should praise Him, and why we are going to praise Him!
