The very purpose of life might be summed up: Show forth the praises of God (1 Peter 2:9)

We should praise God for what He has done. “Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness” (Psalm 150:2).
He has made us: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” (Psalm 139:14).
He has delivered us: (Exodus 15:1; 2 Samuel 22:49-50; Jeremiah 20:13). When Israel’s children learned that God had heard their cry and had sent a deliverer (Moses) they ”bowed their heads and worshipped” (Exodus 4:31). When Moses learned that God kept “Mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, “he made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped” (Exodus 34:7-8). Worship, distilled, is thanksgiving for salvation (Psalm 69:30-32; 71:8; 14; 86:5; 15; 92:1-8; 95:1-7; 100:4; 150:6).
He has blessed us. When we take time to count our blessing (James 1:17), it makes us worshipful. It is an unthankful heart that shuns worship. When the eldest servant of Abraham’s house played matchmaker for young Isaac, he devised a plan to determine which girl the Lord approved. When the sign was given, with a thankful heart he “bowed down his head, and worshipped the Lord” (Genesis 24:26, 8,52).
He has given us His truth (Psalm 138:2). “In God will praise his word” (Psalm 56:4). “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thou counsels of old are faithfulness and truth” (Isaiah 25:1).
He has answered our prayers (Psalm 118:21) So, “praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people” Romans 15:11). Yea, “let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord” (Psalm 150:6). “Therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually” (Hebrews 13:15).
