“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.” (Psalms 150:1-6)
Today’s Morsel: Looking through scripture, I only find this passage where words ‘Praise God’ is found. Yes, there are mentions of praise to God, or to let God be praised, but this is the only scripture passage that I find that tell us to ‘Praise God.’ And then it tells us where to praise Him, why we must praise Him, and with what we must praise Him. David asked, “For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?”(Psalms 18:31) When you know the Lord, you know the God that is to be praised. “Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am” said Jesus (John 13:13); “ Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:23-24). As the writer of Hebrews admonishes us, “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” (Hebrews 13:15) Let God be praised.
Sing: Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him in the morning, praise Him in the noontime. Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him when the sun goes down.
