Lifestyle of Praise

Sunday May 20, 2018
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!

Pastor Sydney read from Exodus 18:20, pray for a constitutional judge.  Roe verses Wade need to be overturned. Untie your shoe before you can put it on. Protect the citizen. Be active when you are suppose to. Keep our government in prayer. Chosen by our executive branch. Four qualifiers 1) Able man, 2) God fearing, 3) Men of truth, and 4) Hating bribes. Psalm 34:1, praise is prayer. The result of having Lordship in my life. David was poor (being troubled) but, later on he is not poor. The Lord preserves me! Why should we praise the Lord? Pastor Sydney read from Revelations 19:5 and Psalm 150:6. You don’t have to understand “why” to obey the Lord. Teach your kids to obey because you said so. Why should we praise the Lord? Because, He told us to. The Lord knows that if you praise Him will open the door and increase your capacity to receive. You’ll get into agreement with Him. Pastor Sydney read from Psalm 18:1-3. God is my strength, my rock, and my shield are reasons why we should praise the Lord. Some things are praise worthy. Whatever the Lord does is praise worthy. God provides peace which, is worthy.

Pastor Sydney spoke out of Psalms 37. Again and again it says do not be agitated. Do not worry. Pastor Sydney encouraged  us to focus on God. Wait for the Lord. Do not do things in your own strength. Pastor Sydney read out of Isaiah 53. The prophet is prophesying many years. The prophesy says that Jesus bore our sickness and disease. Peter says that by His stripes we were healed (where it had happened). Isaiah said by His wounds we are healed ( said in the future). In salvation is the right that belongs to us. Shalom, part of salvation, means peace. Overwhelming peace in every facet of our lives belongs to you. Pastor Sydney mentioned that David had a covenant that he lived under. The wolf comes and even when adversity comes the righteous have not gone without. David is speaking the Lord’s word rebuking the devil. The battle is the Lords. Speak the Lords word and condemn the devil. You just can’t wait for the Lord to do something. Pastor Sydney mentioned that the Lord said He will bless you. You just need to speak life and blessings over yourself. Pastor Sydney read out of Psalms 34 and Hebrews 13:15-16. “What could you give the greatest giver (the Lord), Pastor Sydney asked?” You could give Him your praise. Offering is not just about money. There are three types of offerings. 1) Praise, 2) To do good, and 3) To share. Your words lay out the highway for what is to come. In the bible the Lord mentions that if you don’t have a gift don’t come. Pastor Sydney read out of Ephesians 5:18-20Genesis 8:20Hosea 14:2, and 1 Peter 2:15.

Lifestyle of Praise Part 6

Sunday July 22, 2018

Pastor Sydney read out of Hebrews 13:15, continually offer sacrifice of praise. Sacrifice is the gift to the Lord when it is mentioned in this verse. Praise, do good, and to share is what we are to do. Pastor Sydney read  from Acts 10:1 and Psalms 34:1-2. It starts with personal responsibility. It is the doer who sees the results. Pastor Sydney read from 1 Samuel 17:34, people spend their time magnifying the problem. Stand up and remind your problem and boast on the Lord. They are measuring themselves with the problem.

Ron Cohn referenced Colossians 3:16. The Lord had given two songs through Rohn Cohn: Braggadocious  When life gets to be a drag you should brag. When strength in your life begins to lag, on the Lord God you should brag. When the devil’s tongue begins to wag, strike back! On the Lord begin to brag.    When in life you need a brand new bag, just praise the Lord and begin to brag. When the lies of the devil become a nag, rise up in victory and on God brag. When the only dancing has become a shag, stand up begin to dance and give God a brag. When in life you are it, satan wants to tag, just touch him back and on God brag, brag, brag.  Magnifying the Lord When you magnify the Lord, H will get big. He will get so large you’ll dance a jig. And when you magnify Him, He will get tall. If you don’t magnify Him, He will stay small. So when life gets tough and you want to cry. See God bigger and start to magnify.

Pastor Sydney mentioned that we should have a habit of praise. Praise the Lord everywhere you go. 1) When should we praise Him. 2) Where we should praise Him. 3) Why we should praise Him. 3) What praising the Lord looks like. Pastor Sydney mentioned that we should not praise our problems. To not magnify the problem. Praise or bragging, thanksgiving, and worship are things that should be included in praising. Pride will not allow you to be thankful. Pastor Sydney mentioned that without God he is nothing. Pride doesn’t want us to acknowledge the Father. Humility is knowing who you are without Him and who you are with Him. Humility is a thankful person. Pastor Sydney read Psalms 18:146 and Psalms 30:1. Acknowledge the Lord for what He did. Thank the Lord for your healing.  Be grateful for what you have. A selfish is someone who is not thankful. Pastor Sydney read out of Psalms 103. We don’t give thanks for what we don’t deserve. We don’t give thanks for things we don’t remember. He renews, he heals, and He satisfies. Pastor Sydney read from Psalms 50, unrighteousness will suppress the truth. Pastor Sydney mentioned not to look to your job as the source. Don’t look to the doctors as your healer.
