Praising is a way of showing God we TRUST and that our hope is in HIM.
As David said: "Why are thou downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your HOPE in God, For I will yet PRAISE HIM, my Saviour and my God."
As God has saved the Jews from the bondage of Egypt, He has sent His Son to save us from the bondage of Satan. (Heb 2:15) Just as God proclaimed to Pharaoh: "Let my people go, so that they MIGHT WORSHIP ME." (Ex 9:13)
God is saying to us today: "I HAVE SAVED YOU FROM THE BONDAGE OF THE ENEMY THAT YOU MIGHT WORSHIP AND PRAISE ME [AND DANCE BEFORE ME] and so that MY NAME MIGHT BE PROCLAIMED IN ALL THE EARTH."
As you do so, FREEDOM AND DELIVERANCE from all BONDAGES (such as sickness, bad habits and problems) will take place.
Yeshua has come to give us "a GARMENT of PRAISE for the spirit of heaviness." (Is 61:3)
PRAISING GOD IS FREEDOM FROM THE ENEMY!
"Let everything that has breath praise Y-H-V-H." (Ps 150:6)
Praise is the confession of our acknowledgment of God's greatness, His might, His majesty, His perfection, His holiness, His fame, His justice, His righteousness, His faithfulness, His love, His everything.
PRAISE GOD IN THE HIGHEST!
"I WILL PRAISE YOU WITH THE HARP FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS, O MY GOD: I WILL SING PRAISE TO YOU WITH THE LYRE O HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. MY LIPS WILL SHOUT FOR JOY WHEN I SING PRAISE TO YOU, I WHOM YOU HAVE REDEEMED." Ps 71:22-23
DESPISING A PERSON WHO HONORS GOD BY DANCING BEFORE HIM GETS A PUNISHMENT:
2Sa 6:14 - 23
And David DANCED BEFORE THE LORD WITH ALL HIS MIGHT; and David was girded with a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, MICHAL Saul's daughter LOOKED THROUGH A WINDOW, and saw king David LEAPING and DANCING before the LORD; and she DESPISED him in her heart. And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD. And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts. And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one A CAKE OF BREAD, and A GOOD PIECE OF FLESH, and A FLAGON OF WINE. So all the people departed every one to his house.
Then David returned TO BLESS HIS HOUSEHOLD. And MICHAL the daughter of Saul CAME OUT TO MEET DAVID, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel today, who UNCOVERED HIMSELF TODAY IN THE EYES OF THE HANDMAIDS of his servants, as one of the VAIN FELLOWS SHAMELESSLY UNCOVERS himself!
And David said unto Michal, IT WAS BEFORE THE LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: THEREFORE WILL I PLAY BEFORE THE LORD. And I WILL YET BE MORE VILE THAN THUS, and WILL BE BASE IN MINE OWN SIGHT: and of the maidservants which you have spoken of, of them SHALL I BE HAD IN HONOR.
Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul HAD NO CHILD unto the day of her death.
1Ch 15:27 - 29 And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the Levites that bare the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the master of the song with the singers: David also had upon him an ephod of linen.
Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with SHOUTING, and with sound of the CORNET, and with TRUMPETS, and with CYMBALS, making a noise with PSALTERIES and HARPS.
And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the LORD came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looking out at a window saw king David DANCING [H7540 - râqad] and playing: and she DESPISED him in her heart.
Jer 31:13 Then shall THE VIRGIN REJOICE in the DANCE, both YOUNG MEN and OLD TOGETHER: for I will turn their mourning INTO JOY, and will COMFORT them, and make them REJOICE from their sorrow.
Exo 15:20 -21 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, TOOK A TIMBREL in her hand; and all the women went out after her WITH TIMBRELS and WITH DANCES. And Miriam answered them:
Sing you to the LORD, for He hath triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider has He thrown into the sea.
Jdg 11:34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him WITH TIMBRELS and WITH DANCES: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.
1Sa 18:6 - 7 And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, SINGING and DANCING, to meet king Saul, with TABRETS, with JOY, and with INSTRUMENTS of music. And the women answered one another as they PLAYED, and said, "Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands."
Let them PRAISE HIS NAME IN THE DANCE:
let them SING PRAISES UNTO HIM with the TIMBREL and HARP.
Psa 150:3 - 6
PRAISE HIM with the SOUND OF TRUMPET:
PRAISE HIM with the PSALTERY and HARP.
PRAISE HIM with the TIMBREL and DANCE:
PRAISE HIM with STRINGED INSTRUMENTS and ORGANS.
PRAISE HIM upon the ...loud CYMBALS:
PRAISE HIM upon the high sounding CYMBALS.
LET EVERYTHING that HAS BREATH PRAISE the LORD.
PRAISE YOU THE LORD!!!!
And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and DANCING.
