When do you praise the Lord? Is it just on Sunday mornings when you sing songs with fellow believers in a church service? Maybe you sing along to a familiar song occasionally on the radio? Thanking God before we eat a meal is giving credit where credit is due, and a form of praise. Throughout our normal day, we don’t always have God on the forefront of our minds, unless something happens that challenges our well being. It could be a close call where we nearly get hurt, or an injury or illness that could have been worse than we expected. These things ebb and flow on a daily basis, because that is life. We lose a friend or family member and may come face to face with our own mortality for a moment as well. Whenever these things happen, let us thank the Lord for the blessings and kindness that He has shown to us. When our day goes by with nothing but goodness, let us also praise Him for the joys in our lives. Let us be grateful at all times and let His name be on our hearts and minds and lips!
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord. Psalm 150:1-6
Yours in Christ,
