II Chronicles 7:3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
As they worshipped Him He sent fire down. His glory came on the house of worship. They knew that God had heard them and was responding to their worship.
They praised the Lord. They said out loud, to themselves, and to all that could hear that God is good and His mercy lasts forever. Praising is recognizing His attributes and telling Him about them.
God is good. We should recognize this and make it public. Our children should hear it. All should know that God is at work in our lives and we want all to know it!
