Praise the Lord.
How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.
Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;
make music to our God on the harp.
AMEN! It is good to give Him praise.

How great is our Lord!
Those words remind me of the great hymn “How Great Thou Art” that I love so much!

Now I’m wistful for the harp I sold. I couldn’t play it well (though I could pluck out Amazing Grace), but I could “noodle” praises.
Amen! I’m praising Him with this Joy-Filled Benediction this Sabbath
Because He who has called us is faithful!
Love, “He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.” Was at the planetarium in Greenwich, London this week. Amazing that my Father numbers those stars that we cannot and says when they appear and when they die. He even gave those stars names!! Amazing God.

I was just talking to a couple of people yesterday about the importance of singing the Lord’s Praises in all things. It’s one of the highest form of worship…to Praise The Lord in the midst of trials. You are saying, “No matter what this situation looks like Lord, I TRUST YOU to work all things out for YOUR good and perfect will.”

PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!!

Oh Lord I praise your holy and wonderful name! I lift my voice and sing, sing, sing to you with a heart full of thanksgiving and my mouth shall evermore bless you and your mighty works! This is a wonderful day you have made and I will rejoice and am glad in it! AMEN!

Just last weekend I was listening to praise music on Pandora.com and doing a Bible study. I love all kinds of praise and worship music. That is my favorite part of a church service. I can be found walking around campus–work at a university–listening to praise music with hands lifted high.
Love the scripture!
