On the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate. Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts, And I will tell of Your greatness. They shall eagerly utter the memory of Your abundant goodness
And will shout joyfully of Your righteousness. They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power; To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts And the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever. Psalm 145:5-7, 11-12, 21 NASB
When you focus on Jesus you can’t help but overflow with obedience to Him. You long to tell the story of a King who humbled Himself and came to earth to live amongst His creation and then in obedience to the Father, He died on the cross. And the Father raised Him to His rightful place, back upon His throne.
Let us not forget that Jesus is still on His throne today and He deserves our focus of praise and our obedience to tell the world that He lives.
speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; — Ephesians 5:19-20
Today is the perfect opportunity to do this. Hope you have the chance to worship God with others in unity to the praise and glory of our Lord.
Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse. — Psalm 150:1 For He looked down from His holy height; From heaven the Lord gazed upon the earth,– Psalm 102:19 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God. — Psalm 14:2 God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there is anyone who understands, Who seeks after God. — Psalm 53:2
Praise the Lord! A simple request for a deserving, worthy God. Praise Him in His sanctuary. The sanctuary, temple, a holy place. It is the place where God dwells. We are called to be holy, the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. Praise Him in His mighty expanse. The Creator of everything, indwelling in us desires our praise.
He looks down from His heavenly abode upon all His creation and He searches for any who understand, any who will seek Him. When He looks at your corner of the world what does He see?
To properly praise our God, we must have a spirit of praise. Where does that come from? From seeking Him continually. When we seek we understand because God reveals great and mighty things. When we seek we see the Lord at work. When we seek our hearts are softened and filled with praise. Seeking brings understanding, peace, and joy which is turned into praise!
So let us praise the Lord from a heart that seeks Him.
