Deuteronomy 8:10, Revelation 19:5 NIV 2011

When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.

Then a voice came from the throne, saying: “Praise our God, all you his servants.”

 

On the precipice of the Promised Land God called His people to remember His provisions. Deuteronomy 8:2, “Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years.” Jeremiah reminded the people to praise God. Jeremiah 20:13, “Sing to the Lord! Give praise to the Lord! He rescues the life of the needy form the hands of the wicked.” David praised God continually. Psalm 145:1, “I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.” Paul praised God. Ephesians 1:3, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” God is worthy of praise.

 

A sweet five-year-old joined me as I slept last night. I praised God for a great night’s sleep even though I was not alone. As he worked on some Legos and the new “meltie beads” I began to write. I praised God for the one-on-one time we had together. Remembering to re-state my expectations every hour, the time spent together was delightful. I enjoyed a nice meal with a friend and we shared and laughed through our time together. I’m thankful God is worthy of my praise.

 

What makes God worthy of praise daily?

 

Joyfully praising God together,

S
