Peggy I am so glad you enjoyed this post. And thank you so much for stopping by. Be and stay…
Saturday morning when I woke up this one song was on my heart and has been so pronounced that I have to share it with my reading audience:
Praise Him, Praise Him. In all things praise Him. Jesus blessed Savior. He’s worthy to be praised!
David said, “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.” (Psalm 34:1-3 NKJV)
As much trouble David often found himself in with King Saul and the many wars that he fought and won. (1 Samuel 18:7 NKJV) If anyone should know about praising God—after all, he is noted as being a man after God’s own heart—it would be David.
And again, King David pens…
Praise[a] the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty [b]firmament!
Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
Praise Him with the sound of the [c]trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
[d]Praise the Lord! (Psalm 150:1-6 NKJV)
Remember King Jehosaphat?
And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.” Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they [e]had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. (2 Chronicles 20:21-23 NKJV)
You may have a praise inside of you that will cause you to run through a troop and leap over a wall or a sacrificial praise that can break the chains you’ve been bound with for so long—Remember Paul and Silas? (Acts 16:25-30 NKJV)
Sometimes life deals us such heavy blows we feel like we are buried under the rubble of defeat, with “No More Left” for our tombstone. But, if we dig deep within ourselves and can find a true abiding praise within our hearts and begin to sing or speak that praise we can come out from under that rubble strong and victorious destroying that tombstone in the name of Jesus!
