Psalm 148

Psalm 148


1 Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights above.
2 Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies.
5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created.
6 He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away.
7 Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and maidens, old men and children.
13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 He has raised up for his people a horn, the praise of all his saints, of Israel, the people close to his heart.

Praise the LORD.


Many years ago, when my youngest son was in the two-year-old Sunday school class I will lead them in simple songs. One of these was My God is so big, so strong, and so might there nothing my God cannot do. A simple song that had a powerful message. How soon do we forget this message in our daily routines? As soon as the lust of the flesh, the lust of our eyes, or the pride of life enters our routine we fall back on our strength not His. Then when the trouble comes, we simply forget about God and how He is so big, so strong, and so mighty.

So, hide this song in your heart when everything around you seems to be falling apart. Let go. It not your will, but His will must be done. It not all about me, but it all about Him. The key of living a Christian life is to turn your life over to Him and to become one of His people.
