Praise God!


Today’s Reading – Psalms 146 – 150 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers also read – Matthew 27 – 28; Psalms 66 – 70; Proverbs 14)

Listen to this morning’s Scripture song – Psalm 89:1

Read the “0714 Evening and Morning” devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” – (Psalm 150:1-6)

“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.” (Psalms 66:1-2)

I remember visiting Solid Rock Baptist Church years ago, and Pastor Clark had noticed some teenagers that weren’t singing. He rebuked them, saying, “Open your big fat mouth and praise God”. I will never forget it, and I often want to shout the same thing at our church.

It is interesting how many times the word praise is used in the Psalms. In fact, every psalm that we have read this morning mentions the word “praise” several times. The Lord deserves our praise. We should praise him first because of who He is; and then because of all that He’s done for us. We should praise God all the time, but it is especially important to praise the Lord in the church house. We can praise Him through our singing, and in our prayers and testimonies. We serve an awesome God, so “open your big fat mouth and praise God”!

Pastor thank you once again. I open my big fat mouth for so many things daily that don’t matter. I need to open my big fat mouth a lot more to praise GOD.

It’s easy to complain to the Lord about everything, but I need to ask myself how often do I thank Him? Thanks for the reminder. Amen

Amen to that and Amen to you Patty. If we’re honest we can say we all have opened our big fat mouths for things we shouldn’t. I remember my mom always walking around the house praising the Lord, even in her hardest times. I sure wish I was a whole lot like her. Lord, forgive me!

Amen Pastor. It’s amazing how we can shout and scream jump up and down for our sports teams.We should try to bring some of that
enthusiasm and excitement when we come to the house of the Lord.

Amen Pastor. In Praising God is simply giving Him recognition for all the great things that He has done for us that we do not deserve. Like the post .
