(Ps 113:1-3) Praise, O servants of the LORD, Praise the name of the LORD! 2 Blessed be the name of the LORD From this time forth and forevermore! 3 From the rising of the sun to its going down The LORD's name is to be praised. NKJV
Let God’s name be praised!
This call of praise is not unfamiliar to the psalmist. The Scripture's remind us that in all seasons we should praise God. This should not be a difficult task, nor should it be complex. Praise is the antidote to a downtrodden spirit, a heavy heart. As we continue to press through the times in which we live let us do it with a heart filled with praise. Let us thank God for all that He has done both past, present, and future.
Look for opportunities to, "Praise His name!" Take the time to give thanks for all He has done (Do it right now). When we see ourselves in the light of Scripture, we can place ourselves where we need to be, a place that will cultivate spiritual growth. A place where we will be strengthened by God's power and might. A place we can rest in humility and adoration.
So, why so downcast oh my soul? Put your hope (praises) in God. - (Ps 43:5)
