Praise the Lord!



With God there’s unspeakable exultation.  Join the angelic chorus in praising him and raise your voices with all your might.  Be like thunder when you exclaim, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!”  Let these be the mightiest sounds you make.  Praise him in humility as the supreme ruler for his everlasting goodness of creation.  Do homage to the Almighty, who is the truth.  He alone is our merciful Father.  St. Augustine (354– 430 A.D.), an early Christian theologian and philosopher said, “O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart.  Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.”

Divine Happiness

Let your song be known before God’s throne.  Like the heavenly voices proclaim on earth your adoration of his holy name.  Praise him like roaring waters which are mighty and fervent.  Lift up your voices for the common good of mankind, by bringing this good news to all.  In touching God’s spotless face you’ll never tire in your quest for holiness.  

King Solomon (848 B.C.–796 B.C.), king of Israel and son of David wrote, “Kindness and faithfulness keep a king safe, through kindness his throne is made secure.”  Solomon in seeking happiness was considered one of the wisest men, who ever lived.

Fervency of Praise

Day and night, when people praise God miracles happen.  You must play music on harps, rejoicing in the Lamb, exalting his goodness, blessedness, and kindness.  Let your sounds flow forth and be sweetened with excellent melodies.  The Spirit of truth is sublimely present and your desire to do good never fades.

Steve Jobs (1955–2011), a pioneer of the personal computer revolution said, “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and everyone should be really excellent.  Because this is our life.  Life is brief, and then you die, you know?  So this is what we’ve chosen to do with our life.”  Jobs chose the computer and worked miracles with it.  Everyone though is able to accomplish a great deal just by praising the Creator of the Universe.

Exalted Praise

Exalting the Almighty calls for constant action. In praising him you'll be giving credence to the universe’s goodness, holiness, and highest good.  Plato (428/427 or 424/423 B.C.348/347 B.C.), a Greek philosopher and mathematician wrote, “Music is a moral law.  It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”  Whether through strings, chords, cymbals, drums, or human voices, let your sounds elevate you to God’s blessings.  These are simply amazing, and indescribable benefits people gain when praising our Lord.
