All Day Praise
“Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised.” (Psalms 113:1-3)
Today’s Morsel: One of the first principles I learned in the military in respect to the flag was to render honor to it when it went up at 0600 (6 am) in the morning (Reveille), and when it went down at 1700 (5 pm) in the evening (Retreat). Praise is to render honor or give warm approval to. When we think about God as being our heavenly father and the one who gives life, we should render Him honor. Why does Psalms 150 end by saying, “Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” Because it is God who gives us life. The Psalmist tells us that from the rising of the sun in the morning until it goes down in the evening, the Lord’s name is to be praised. What a great principle to obey and remember.
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.
Thought For Today: Don’t let the devil steal your praise.
