INRI JUNVENILE HARVEST Staged • Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele advices youths
Highly revered clergyman and philantropist, Primate Ayodele Elijah Babatunde Elijah who is the founder and head of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Oke-Afa, Lagos has advised youths on benefits of always praising God
Speaking at their 2022 JUNVENILE HARVEST earlier today , Primate spoke on few benefits of praising God
•Praise helps you sense God’s presence.
God is always present whether you sense it or not. Sometimes we don’t feel his presence, but that’s because we’ve moved away from him. He hasn’t.
When you don’t feel God’s presence is when you need to praise him the most. It’s easier to act your way into a feeling than feel your way into an action. In fact, maturity is when we do what’s right whether we feel like it or not. The Bible says, “Surely the righteous will praise your name, and the upright will live in your presence
•Praise enlarges your perception of God.
The Bible tells us this in Psalm 69:30: “I will praise the name of God with song And magnify Him with thanksgiving”. When we look at something with a magnifying glass, it gets bigger. When God gets bigger, our problems get smaller. Either your problems will be big or God will be big. It’s your choice.
•Praise reveals solutions we can’t see.
We all have issues in our lives we simply can’t figure out. They tie us up in knots. Psalm 73:16-17 describes this kind of situation: “I tried to understand all this, but it was too hard for me to see until I went to the Temple of God. Then I understood what will happen to them” (NCV). The temple of God is a metaphor in this Psalm for coming into the presence of God. It was through worshiping God that the writer got his answer.
The Primate then rounded up by saying the youths are future of the world and must not stop their love and reverence for God
