Winsome Wednesday - Praise the Lord!

Have you ever decided to go to your bible and.... open it randomly, point at a verse and.... see what the Lord says to you?

Well, it doesn't often work so well, unless you hit a luck and land where you see what YOU want to see like say...."and God will smote your enemy" (smiles)

But today I thought - "Lord, what does the last Psalm say?"  WOW!  Its an awesome Psalm!  So here goes:

Psalm 150 v 1-6:  
PRAISE the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
(2) Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
(3) Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
(4) Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes
(5) Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
(6) Let everything that has breath praise the Lord
Praise the Lord!

Let everything that has breath (that's us!) PRAISE Him!


My encouragement to you is to praise God in all circumstances.  Its in doing this that He works in those same circumstances for you!


God bless
Tracy

  1. What a perfect way to end my day....praising the Lord. And, when I awake tomorrow (God willing) it will be a wonderful way to start and LIVE my day...all day long. Can't praise the Lord enough!

    Love this...and love our awesome God. :)

  2. He alone is worthy of praise and if we don't praise him the rocks will praise His Holy Name.

  4. I don't like to recommend opening your Bible at random and hoping to find just the right scripture - - but it has happened to me several times. Once a warning when I was a teen and other times a blessing like turning to the last Psalm. Lovely just lovely!

  7. When trials come, it is difficult to begin to praise. However, I have found, that when we do, God lifts us up and encourages us! He is such an awesome God!

  15. Musicians and singers have such a gift for praise - but I'm learning there are other ways to praise God - with our gifts. Yet - how I want my praise offering to be just as beautiful!

    1. Hi bluecottonmemory - I know what you mean. I'm not really a creative or demonstrative person, so praising Him with my gift is a learning curve for me
