The Psalms provide comfort, peace, and direction for our lives. Written mostly by King David and his son Solomon, the book closes with an anthem of praise.

“Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven!”

Psalms 150:1

No matter where we find ourselves, we too, can praise the Lord. As we head back to church buildings this week, we can continue to praise God in our living rooms, our cars or in our backyards. We raise a hallelujah to heaven in thanksgiving for what He has done.

“‘Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness!”

Psalms 150:2

God’s greatest gift to us was His Son, Jesus. He walked among us, perfect in every way. Compassionate to the needy, a healer to the hurting, and the Savior of the world.

As the scripture says, “praise his unequaled greatness” – no one can match Him, and the grave could not hold Him.

The weekend has arrived, and as we work to re-orient ourselves to a new normal, we can sing hallelujah to heaven.

“Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!”

Psalms 150:6

For some who are fighting for breath in their lungs, we can sing on their behalf. As patients rest under a doctor’s care, the great physician can heal our soul as well as our ailments.

Scripture says, “even the rocks cry out”. How much more should we sing the praises of our Heavenly Father?

Each night as I drift off to dreamland, I hear a chorus of birds singing at the top of their lungs like it’s the middle of the day. What an incredible reminder of Psalms 150:6 – “let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!”

Let your heart shout – Praise the Lord!

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful for another day to wake up and share in the goodness of what you have planned for me. Thank you for what you have done for me. I sing hallelujah and raise my hands in thanksgiving and gratitude for your provision and salvation. May the words of my heart and my lips shout “Praise the Lord!” Amen!
