God is TRULY worthy of praise!
Today, I’d like to propose that we meditate together on the magnificent Psalm 113: “Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord! Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name is to be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on high, who humbles Himself to behold the things that are in the heavens and in the earth? He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes—with the princes of His people. He grants the barren woman a home, like a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord!”
Praise the Lord. Thank Him. Praise His name from sunrise to sunset! This psalm is an invitation extended to all of us!
- The Lord Almighty, the One who rules the nations (verse 4) is also the One who lifts up the poor and needy (verse 7).
- The Lord Almighty, the One who is high above all nations, is enthroned in the praises of His people!
- The Lord Almighty, the God of life, manifests His living and life-giving nature when you praise Him!
I believe that today, the Lord is lifting you up and strengthening you to lift up praises to His name! The Lord is acting and moving in your life, His grace and life descending upon you. What is barren is coming to life (verse 9). And yes! God is sitting you down with princes, with the princes of His people!
There is nothing better than praising the Lord! Because praising Him is declaring that He can save you from any situation.
Begin and end your day with a time of praise, of worship, of contemplation of this magnificent God. You can do so with this song that I absolutely love, “How Great Is Our God (World Edition)” by Chris Tomlin…
It’s HIS invitation and YOUR privilege!
