Key Verse: Psalm 115:17

“The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.”
The greatest service a creature can render unto his Creator is continual sacrifices of praise. God inhabits the praises of saints. It is the understanding of this truth that made Fanny Crosby, in 1869, to write the wonderful song: “Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!”

Our text centres on the need for believers to reflect on God’s goodness. The psalmist calls for the people of God to continually trust, bless and praise Him for His mercies and compassion which faileth not. Idols, which are a creation of men have eyes, but cannot see; they have ears, but they cannot hear; they have mouths but cannot talk. They have legs and hands but they cannot move or work with them. Those idols are dead creatures and their worshippers are dead spiritually.

DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL FOR 2ND DECEMBER 2021 BY PASTOR KUMUYI

The dead cannot praise God. This includes the spiritually dead – sinners and backsliders. We know that the text refers to spiritual death because the saints will continue to praise God even in heaven after death as affirmed in the last verse of the chapter. They will never go down into silence as they will be presenting God with sacrifices of praise even in heaven forever. This is the main work of angels in the court of heaven.

Sinners and backsliders cannot praise God as sin has silenced them. God will never accept their praises; they are abomination to Him. He can only listen to their prayer of repentance. They should therefore run to the cross for spiritual cleansing so that their praises can be acceptable unto God. Believers should, therefore, consecrate their lives to the praises of God.
