Ending your day

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!
[Psalm 150]

Why this Psalm?
Why not?
Why not end the day praising the Lord?

God is indeed worthy.
God is gracious and merciful.
God is compassionate.
God is love.

God is holy and yet forgives sins.
We are faithless but God is faithful.
We are unworthy but God shows grace.

And then there is this whole thing about talking to God and God listening. Me, a puny sinner. God gives me His full attention. That’s pretty amazing, so why not tell him that, after all, God is listening.

And this awesomeness comes through faith in Jesus, God’s son, who suffered a horrible death on a cross FOR YOU and FOR ME so we could be forgiven. That’s pretty amazing as well. Why not praise God for that?

And if that awesomeness was not enough then consider this: That forgiveness I just mentioned, means we get to live with God forever in heaven someday. Yup, I like that.

So there you have it. There is so much to praise God for. So let’s hear it; loud and clear. Let’s hear your voice. Go ahead, shout it out. Don’t be bashful. God is worth it.


Sweet dreams 🙂
