Praise

Tree PraisePraise 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)

Thought4Today…

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. (Revelation 22:3)

Psalm 150 uses the term praise thirteen times in six verses. The first verse provides the “where” of praise-everywhere! “Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. The next verse teaches “why” to praise the Lord: “Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.” Verses 3–6 note “how” to praise the Lord-with a variety of instruments, dance, and everything that has breath. Every means we have to make sound is to be used to praise the Lord! At the end of time, all of God’s people will join in eternal praise of God. “No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him” (Revelation 22:3). With the curse of sin removed, those who are with the Lord will forever praise the King of kings in perfection. It has been said that our worship of God on earth is simply preparation for the celebration of praise that will take place in eternity with the Lord.
