Let all the People Praise Him
Psa 106:48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to
everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
The 106th Psalm enumerates the goodness and grace of God against the backdrop of His amazing patience. Truly, He deserves all our highest praise. As with Israel, He has led us, fed us, provided for us, forgiven us, protected us, given us His presence, and the list goes on.
So let all the people voice an Amen and let each individual specifically praise the Lord.
Is it a habit of yours to vocalize your praise in the congregation of the Lord, as well as in public? Do you actually find yourself blessing the name of the Lord, even in private, when He has blessed you?
God inhabits the praises of His people. When we give it up for God, it glorifies Him , edifies others and lifts our own spirit.
While we are thanking and praising Him, there is no way we can be discouraged, angry or upset. As James said, from the same fountain there cannot proceed better and sweet waters, and from the same mouth there cannot come forth blessing and cursing.
I encourage you to be praiseful today. Look for those positive things that God is doing in your life. Make it a point to say "Amen!" often and praise ye the Lord.
