Sing Praises to the Lord

The Power of Praise

Psalm 138:2 tells us, "I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name." Praise is part of worship. Psalm 150 mentions the word praise 13 times in six verses. Psalm 18:3 says, " I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised." Truly praise is to be directed to the only One that is worthy - Jesus Christ.

He alone is the one that saves. He alone is the One that heals. He alone holds the answers to life. Praise His holy name.

To God Be the Glory

Get It

Do we really get it - the power of praise. God is pleased with our praise. He hears us and draws near when we praise. We see the true beauty of the Saviour when we praise. There is no reason not to praise and we have every reason to praise. The Psalmist says in Psalm 150, "Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD." Praise ye the LORD. Do we get it yet?

Glory, Honor, Power, and Strength to the Lord

Hi lifegate... this is a wow moment as I look at all the ways we can praise Him. Yet another is to be still and know He is God.

Absolutely - that seems to be my biggest challenge at times. There's too much Martha in me and not enough Mary although I know that I can't rightly serve my King until I at first sit at His feet. Thanks for the visit!
