Before going any further with this teaching regarding praising God, it’s imperative that we try to settle a clear distinction between praise and worship, even though there’s strong bond between both of them. While they are similar to each other in several ways; however, they are not exactly the same thing in essence.
When it comes down to worshiping, it’s very easy for many people’s minds to run to singing songs and hymns, clapping hands, lifting hands, and dancing to God, but worshiping God is not limited only to these things. Evidently, these things mentioned previously are an integral part of worshiping God, but in order for worship to be addressed acceptably there is something far deeper and more sacrificial than just doing any of these things mentioned earlier that must be done. While praise is associated with thanksgiving because of what God has done on our behalf; worship by itself has to do with complete submission to God because of whom He is to us.
