“Praise is seeking God. Worship is being found by Him.
The goal of praise is to create an atmosphere for the presence of God. This is why Abraham, Moses, and David were such close friends with God. They made room for Him in their life. Their deep hunger to know and obey Him was the basis for their relationship with Him.
This is true for all genuine worshipers. They love to be with God and He loves to be with them. He shows up because they have an authentic devotion to Him and a passion for Him.
Thus, praise and worship are related but very different activities and experiences. Praise is initiated by us. Worship is God’s response.
Praise is something we do. Worship is something God releases. Praise is our building a house for God. Worship is God moving in.
Worship cannot be generated by us. It is completely dependent on God. We may seek to enter worship through praise, but it is up to God whether He will respond to our initiative.
