Short and to the Point

Psalm 117:Praise the Lord, all you nations;
    extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
    and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord.


Shocked at the brevity of this chapter the words stand out that much more.

  • GOD wants me to praise HIM on a daily basis for this reduces complaints.
  • GOD wants me to extol HIM for this helps me recognize HIS great love towards me and to see HIS endless faithfulness towards supporting me.
  • GOD wants me to praise HIM to remove the thing that makes me not want to praise HIM.

Something blocks me from praising GOD sometimes. Whether it is a circumstance that I’m pouting at or a sin that I have just committed, there are times I just don’t feel like praising GOD. BUT GOD understands. HE is not arrogant or needy. HE knows that when I can wake up and praise HIM, my stony heart will melt to see HIM as HE is, full of love for me. Praise GOD for HIS mercy!

  • Are you feeling lost?
  • Do you feel like you cannot praise GOD because of your circumstance?
  • Do you know HE understands and does not have pressured expectations of you?
  • Will you flow like a river today and allow GOD to do HIS thing?
  • Will you open your mouth today and praise GOD with audible words?
