Let All Things Praise the Lord

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

On yesterday, our lead pastor really pushed and encouraged us to praise the Lord in all ways!  This inspiring message led me to share today’s message, and Scripture, to acknowledge our Heavenly Father’s love for us.  To this end, his sermon reminded me of one of my favorite Scriptures that captures the pure representation and manifestation of praise to our God: Psalm 150.

To praise God is to acknowledge the glories of His excellent person. It differs somewhat from thanksgiving, which describes what God has done rather than what He is.

Psalm 150

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
2 Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
4 Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!Organ_Pipes
5 Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!

Be encouraged today.
