Psalms 150 1
Praise God in his heavenly dwelling; praise him in his mighty heaven! 2  Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness! 3  Praise him with a blast of the trumpet; praise him with the lyre and harp! 4  Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with stringed instruments and flutes! 5  Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals. 6  Let everything that lives sing praises to the Lord! Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

Although the Bible invites us to praise God. we often aren’t sure how to go about it. Here, several ways are suggested: by singing, dancing, or playing musical instruments.  Music and song were a very important part of Old Testament worship.  David introduced music into the Tabernacle and Temple services. The music was loud and joyous as evidenced by the list of instruments in this scripture.  Are you praising God with joy and singing? It should be a part of what you do everyday.  God enjoys His people and He enjoys our praise.  Not because He needs it, but because we do.  When we praise Him, we focus on Him and not on ourselves or our problems.  Praising God brings us into right focus with who He is and what our purpose is.  We are His people and we are to praise Him.  It is an act of obedience and brings us great peace.  Make it a part of what you do daily to show your love for Him.

Have a God Day!
