Breathe It Out

Psalm 150:1-6

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!" (Psalm 150:6). Do you have breath today? You know it. So we'd best be praising the Lord. Psalm 150 gives us a number of examples, but there are definitely many more ways we can praise.

So what does your praise look like--at church? With your family? At work? When you're alone? Tami W.

Praising the Lord is a vital part of my Christian experience; though I'm sure I don't do it as often as I'd like. For me, praise keeps the right attitude in my life. Praise is an emotional experience, not an intellectual one, at least for me. I know the doctrine and I believe what God says, but emotionally I can start having a pity party or a pouty face. However, praise lifts the corners of my mouth into a smile and gives me a necessary attitude adjustment. Praise the Lord for all that He has done and for Who He is!

I like the way this psalm is written--kind of machine gun praises. It's praise after praise after praise with no breaks for thought or even to take a breath. It flows from a heart that is overfull.

The goal for me is 'let everything that has breath WITH EVERY BREATH praise the Lord'. Hard to achieve that. Kind of like prayer without ceasing, but, like prayer, developing a constant awareness that God is who He is and in His temple helps keep my thoughts on Him and keeps the prayers and praises flowing!

I'm sure I don't praise The LORD enough. I've notice with this commerical on most days on my radio station. It is a young girl praising God in thanks. She thanks for tooth paste, roads, etc. It gets me thanking and Praising God more often lately. We truly are blessed. And I praise God for that.

We are encouraged to praise the Lord in any way we can in our church. I really enjoy this Psalm as everything is told to praise the Lord. After all, is that not part of the reason we were created?!

Thanking the Lord for all he has done for us is a good exercise for us, i.e., thank him for supplying your needs daily such as the food on your table, your family and friends.

At this time of year, may I suggest an Advent Devotional??

Doug,

Thanks for your suggestion. At this time, we have not developed an advent devotional, however Bible Gateway offers one on their website. You can sign up at the following link:
