Days of Praise

I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.

Psalm 145:1-2

Have you ever just sat back and considered everything God has done in your life? For most of us, we don’t take the time to do this often enough; I know I don’t.  It may be hard to get started, as thoughts about the here and now rush though our minds, as the distractions and demands of everyday life make so much noise that it’s hard to think. Yet as we continue to ponder, as we begin to relax, God’s doings begin to enter our thoughts, and before too long, they push the distractions away.

We might even move on to ponder and reflect upon what God has done in His Creation; the wonder of all it, its grandeur so magnificent.

When we invest a little time and attention in this way, it isn’t easy to remain silent, is it?

Our God is so amazing, so awesome, so powerful, so loving; how can we think on such things and not enthusiastically give Him praise?

Funny thing about exaltation; once you get started, it’s hard to stop. Imagine what it would be like if we did this every day; don’t you suppose that every day would be as amazing as the things God does in our lives? Oh yes, I bet they would be; can you guess why?

If we began each day reflecting upon all that God is and does in our lives, we would be seeing all that He does each day as we go along, and each day we would be giving him enthusiastic praise, and when you do that, it’s hard to stop… and each day would then become a day of praise.

    When we make time to think about God and what He is doing or has done it gets our thoughts off our problems and on Him. It keeps our focus in right perspective which makes life more full of joy. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great article brother! I want my “theme” song to be remembered by my favorite Hymn, “How Great Thou Art” as it sums up all the glory, awe and majesty of our Heavenly Father in such worshipful and adoring ways!!! 😉

  3. The more we get to know God and allow Him into our lives, the more we understand how Awesome He is – Praise Him with every breath I take
