PS 103 v 1-5....Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not His benefits; Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's......
Do you have a reason to praise the LORD today? Well, let's think about it. Did you wake up this morning? Did you take a breath today? Then you have a reason to praise the LORD. Do you have your health, your eye sight, your hearing, a sense of smell, can you move all your body parts? How many things do we take for granted everyday, that we do not stop to praise the LORD for? Look at your spouse, your children, and praise the LORD for them.
But then most importantly, Praise Him just because you Love HIM. Does He have to give you something big, or expensive for you to think to praise Him? Does He have to do something spectacular for you to praise Him?
We should wake up in the morning praising Him, no matter how we feel. If you start praising the Lord, you will most assuredly feel better. We should praise Him throughout the day, we should sing His praises in our hearts all day long. Praise Him before we go to sleep at night for another day and all His goodness that surrounds us.
There are no secret methods here as to how to praise the LORD, or as to how you can receive His joy. Just start singing His praises in your heart and with your mouth and you shall have JOY. AMEN!
PRAISE THE LORD! Let's love on Him for a change. Let's show HIM our love and not just the other way around. I will say it again. PRAISE THE LORD!!
