Is your “to do list” packed for the day? Mine is, and several items are already screaming and scrambling for first place. I’m certain many of you can relate.
Let’s take a deep breath before we begin the day and tell God how awesome He is! He should be the most important focus of our day, from which everything else finds its meaning. For in Him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
What’s the most important thing to do today? Praise the Lord! This is why we were created. Let’s acknowledge Him in all we do, thank Him, and delight in Him, for He is worthy of all glory, honor, and praise.
PRAISE THE LORD, oh my soul, with my whole heart I will praise your holy name!
“Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
The Lord gives righteousness and justice to all who are treated unfairly.
He revealed his character to Moses and his deeds to the people of Israel.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever.
He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.
Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
The wind blows, and we are gone—as though we had never been here.
But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him.
His salvation extends to the children’s children of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments!
The Lord has made the heavens his throne; from there he rules over everything.
Praise the Lord, you angels, you mighty ones who carry out his plans, listening for each of his commands.
Yes, praise the Lord, you armies of angels who serve him and do his will!
Praise the Lord, everything he has created, everything in all his kingdom.
Let all that I am praise the Lord.”
May you know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep God’s love is for you.
