The word Hallelujah is often considered the language of heaven. Why? What does the word Hallelujah mean?
God is so good, so merciful, so kind, so gracious and so loving that all the praise of our lifetime is not enough for all He has done for us. Hallelujah!
Without getting into a deep course in Hebrew in brief it means to boast of praise to Yah. Praise to God. An expression of worship and rejoicing. God be praised.
Why is this so important to God? Thankfulness is a language of love from us to God. It is a choice. It is an attitude. It is a mindset. It shows our heart to God.
Even if we see negative situations all around us, don’t deny they exist, instead thank God that He is in control even if we can’t see it. Instead of trying to be in control of everything , focus on God. This shows God that we trust Him Him completely. Plus it puts the situation out of our hands and soley into God’s hand. Do all that you can do, then stand on God’s promises. God can only be faithful.
When we are thankful God shows us one way of expressing our gratitude is to sing out the praise to His name. Hallelujah is the word to do that. It is the language of heaven and can be the language of our heart if we have an attitude of gratitude. A life of praise becomes a life filled with miracles. Why?
Worship connects us to the heart of God. When we communicate a thankful heart towards Him it makes Him smile. Think about a parent who does something nice for their child…the face of the parent lights up when the child says thank you on their own. God loves to hear us say thank you too. 🙂
He is our creator, provider, healer, comforter, father, friend and so much more. He is constant. He is Yahweh, the same yesterday, today and forever. He loves us more than our minds can imagine!
He showers us with countless blessings each day. If we are focused on Him, our eyes will be opened to see all these blessings He showers us with daily. Too often we are focused on the circumstances of the day and miss seeing what He has done for us so graciously. Keeping our eyes fixed on Him keeps us in the attitude of gratitude and we will begin to see all He does in our lives. Not because He then begins to give us these blessings, just because our eyes are finally open and focus adjusted to see them.
