(From Psalm 148, 149, and 150)
"Praise the LORD from the heavens! Praise him from the skies! Praise him, all his angels! Praise him, all the armies of heaven! Praise him, sun and moon! Praise him, all you twinkling stars! Praise him, skies above!
Let every created thing give praise to the LORD, for he issued his command, and they came into being. He set them into place forever and ever...
Praise the LORD from the earth, you creatures of the ocean depths, fire and hail, snow and clouds, wind and weather that obey him, mountains and hills...[animals and birds], kings of the earth and all people, rulers and judges of the earth, young men and young women, old men and children.
Let them all praise the name of the LORD.
For his name is very great; his glory towers over the earth and heaven!
He has made his people strong, honoring his faithful ones - the people...who are close to him.
Sing to the LORD a new song.
For the LORD delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory. Let the faithful rejoice that he honors them. Let them sing for joy...Let the praises of God be in their mouths...
Praise the LORD! ...praise him in his mighty heaven! Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness! ...
LET EVERYTHING THAT BREATHES SING PRAISES TO THE LORD!
Praise the LORD!"
Oh Lord, I can hardly contain myself when I think of how glorious You are! I am overwhelmed by Your majesty - humbled by the greatness of Your presence! And to know that You LOVE me...this is a wonder too wonderful to comprehend! Thank You, Lord, for Your gracious mercies, your faithfulness that is new EACH morning!
I LOVE YOU, LORD - forever!!
"When in doubt, search God out!"
