Psalm 148 Praise. . .
One word that is in the Psalms for sure is praise. The psalmist' praise the Lord. There are many reasons to praise the Lord. And, as in this psalm, every part of God's creation is called on to praise the Lord. How fitting! God is worthy of our praise! And how good it is for us to recognize that and to praise Him! As we praise the Lord, something happens in us, as well as us blessing the Lord. We enter His courts with praise. Praise draws us near to Him. It opens our hearts even more to His presence and to see Him for who He is. All of creation is a testimony of His majesty. How about you? What inspires you to praise the Lord? The beauty of His creation? God's goodness in your life? What is a favorite praise song of yours? Our little grandson loves to sing this song: "Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul; worship His holy name. Sing like never before, O my soul. I'll worship His holy name." And each of our grands seem to have a favorite one! Praise comes easily from young hearts!
See you next week--Kenny and I are leaving today for the Outer Banks to minister tomorrow night at Liberty Christian Fellowship and at Corolla Chapel on Saturday at a Women's Conference and Sunday morning during their regular services. If you're in the area, come join us. If not, we appreciate your prayers.
Praise the Lord!!!
