“You are the Lord’s people. Obey Him and celebrate! He deserves your praise.”– Psalm 33:1 (CEV)
What does it mean to praise the Lord and why is it important? It means to praise Him with our heart, our soul, our mind and our very being. It is important because God’s Word says it is important.
We are His people and we are to obey Him and celebrate Him because He deserves are praise. We praise Him because He is truthful and He can be trusted, because He loves justice and fairness and He is kind to everyone everywhere on earth.
He made the world and all that is within it including us. From nothing He made everything and everyone in this world should worship and honor the Lord. With His voice the world was created in the earth was formed.
He is involved in the world today destroying the plans and schemes of the nations. While nations will come and go. No matter how strong the nations are, what the Lord has planned will stand forever. His thoughts never change. He will bless those nations that worship only Him, as He blesses His chosen ones. He looks at the world from His throne in heaven, as He watches the soul. While He gave us an independent mind, nothing can be hidden from Him.
Mighty armies and great strength cannot keep a nation safe, but the Lord watches over all who honor Him and trust His kindness. He protects them from death and starvation. Not only does He protect us, but He makes our hearts glad when we trust in Him.
Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, Praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, Praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. (Psalm 150)
