The Privilege Of Praise

12th September

Let them all praise the name of the Lord. For His name is very great; His glory towers over the earth and heaven!”

Psalm 148:13

Did you know that even the sun and moon praise God! Everything that God created is a vessel for giving praise back to Him. The Psalmist in Psalm 148 creates an extensive list of all things that praise God. However, why did he choose to write such a long list? Maybe he was trying to show us that actually, everything that we can see around us, and even the things that we can’t see, all were made by God’s mighty hands and all sing in praise and rejoice in obedience to His commands.

See it is a joy to join in with all of creation in praising our Creator God. We are in included in the things created. Isn’t it incredible that we can join with the sun and moon, the vapours high above the clouds, the wild animals in the fields and the fish that swim in the deepest oceans, in praising our great God. Moreover, we are God’s finest creations. We are the ones whom He sacrificed His only Son for. We are the ones whom God chose to have a relationship with. We are the ones whose hearts Jesus has made His home. We are God’s chosen people. His bride. His church. His body. If the wind and waves rejoice in praise, then how much more such we praise our God.
