Praise and Bless the Lord

Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord, Praise the name of the Lord!  Blessed be the name of the Lord From this time forth and forevermore!  From the rising of the sun to its going down
The Lord’s name is to be praised
(Psalm 113:1-3, NKJV)

We are encouraged to praise the Lord throughout each day. Why? The answer is quite simple. God is worthy of praise because of who He is and He should be praised at ALL times.

He is to be praised for his blessings which He gives us throughout the day. Verses 7 and 8 give us reasons why we should praise Him. “He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people! He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother.

Who wouldn’t be moved to praise the God who rescues, sustains the poor, needy and vulnerable and blesses the barren?

Today, I encourage you to praise the the Lord and to bless His holy name.
