Have You Praised The Lord Today

Child praying and praising God.

Psalm 47

Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!

Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
For the LORD Most High is awesome;
He is a great King over all the earth.
He will subdue the peoples under us,
And the nations under our feet.
He will choose our inheritance for us,
The excellence of Jacob whom He loves. Selah

God has gone up with a shout,
The LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with understanding.

God reigns over the nations;
God sits on His holy throne.
The princes of the people have gathered together,
The people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
He is greatly exalted.

Have you praised the Lord today? Are you experiencing a situation in which you feel trapped and burdened? Is there something going on that is keeping you from feeling joy? Praise the Lord! Sing a song, read a psalm aloud, tell the Lord how great and awesome He is! By praising the Lord, we take the focus off our problems and situations and put the focus on our Lord. This gives the Lord the opening He needs to take our situations and problems and handle them His way. We are releasing our cares and burdens to the Lord and recognizing that He is bigger than our problems.

So, I ask you again – Have you praised the Lord today?
