Psalm 150

The final psalm – Psalm 150 – continues with the direction for us to Praise the Lord.  In fact, the entire psalm is about that topic.  The who, what, when, where, how and why all wrapped up in one short psalm.  Let’s take a look at what we can learn about praising God:

Who:

  • The Lord
  • Everything that has breath

What:

  • Praise Him

When:

  • Now
  • Continually

Where:

  • In His sanctuary
  • In His mighty heavens

How:

  • With the trumpet sounds
  • With the lute and harp
  • With tambourine and dance
  • With strings and pipe
  • With sounding cymbals
  • With loud clashing cymbals

Why:

  • For His mighty deeds
  • According to His excellent greatness

There is no question that praise is to be how we live in relationship with God.  We sometimes get confused and think that life is about us.  It isn’t.  God is the center of the universe.  We’re merely a part of His much bigger story.  We are but a blip on the radar, our lives are so short and will be gone in an instant.  But God is forever.  He will reign eternal.  And we need to give Him the praise and adoration that He deserves.

Praising God is not sitting in the pew on Sunday morning.  It isn’t even singing the worship songs at church.  It’s far more than that.  Praising God is a lifestyle that should consume us and be on our lips all the time.  We have so much to be grateful for.  God is worthy of our praise.  He deserves our adoration.  Let all who breathe praise the Lord.  He is King of Kings and Creator.  He is worthy!
