AT OUR BEST WHEN PRAISING GOD!

Psalms – Prayers of Honesty
 
Psalm 33 stopWhen we stop our routines and consider all that God has done, is doing and will do for us, can we not help but smile and thank Him with all that it in us? God made us. God made every thing around us. We look to Him when situations get scary. He comes to our rescue. He gives us joy with unexpected blessings we didn’t ask for as we live to please Him. Yes, God is all we need. Le’t just stop and praise God for awhile this morning…
 
Psalm 33, The Message
 
Psalm 33 praise him1-3 Good people, cheer God!
Right-living people sound best when praising.
Use guitars to reinforce your Hallelujahs!
Play his praise on a grand piano!
Invent your own new song to him;
give him a trumpet fanfare.
 
4-5 For God’s Word is solid to the core;
everything he makes is sound inside and out.
He loves it when everything fits,
when his world is in plumb-line true.
Earth is drenched
in God’s affectionate satisfaction.
 
Psalm 33 child of6-7 The skies were made by God’s command;
he breathed the word and the stars popped out.
He scooped Sea into his jug,
put Ocean in his keg.
 
8-9 Earth-creatures, bow before God;
world-dwellers—down on your knees!
Here’s why: he spoke and there it was,
in place the moment he said so.
 
10-12 God takes the wind out of Babel pretense,
he shoots down the world’s power-schemes.
God’s plan for the world stands up,
all his designs are made to last.
Blessed is the country with God for God;
blessed are the people he’s put in his will.
 
Psalm 33 God knows13-15 From high in the skies God looks around,
he sees all Adam’s brood.
From where he sits
he overlooks all us earth-dwellers.
He has shaped each person in turn;
now he watches everything we do.
 
16-17 No king succeeds with a big army alone,
no warrior wins by brute strength.
Horsepower is not the answer;
no one gets by on muscle alone.
 
18-19 Watch this: God’s eye is on those who respect him,
the ones who are looking for his love.
He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times;
in lean times he keeps body and soul together.
 
Psalm 33 hope is in you20-22 We’re depending on God;
he’s everything we need.
What’s more, our hearts brim with joy
since we’ve taken for our own his holy name.
Love us, God, with all you’ve got—
that’s what we’re depending on.
 
SOMETHING TO CHEW…AND SING…
Yes, Yes, and Yes! Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! Praise Him, Praise Him!….Yes, I’m singing praises, the songs of my youth, to God right now. What are you singing?
 
Psalm 33 rejoice
Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Sing, O Earth, His wonderful love proclaim!
Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest archangels in glory;
Strength and honor give to His holy Name!
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,
In His arms He carries them all day long.
 
Praise Him! Praise Him! Tell of His excellent greatness;
Praise Him! Praise Him! Ever in joyful song!
 
Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
For our sins He suffered, and bled, and died.
He our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail Him! Hail Him! Jesus the Crucified.
Sound His praises! Jesus who bore our sorrows,
Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong.
 
Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Savior, reigneth forever and ever;
Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet, and Priest, and King!
Christ is coming! over the world victorious,
Pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong.
(Fanny Crosby, 1869)
 
HEART CHECK:
 
I have been on a 90 day challenge to list ten grateful statements to God each morning as well as four others, to thrive…now I know why I’m enjoying this challenge so much! It is good and pleasing to give God praise…We’re at our best when praising!!
 
List ten grateful praises to God. The more you think about how blessed you are the more you begin living a blessed life in front of others! Guaranteed.
 
Psalm 33 peopleDear Heavenly Father,
We just want to say thank you. You are God and we are not. You are the One and Only to be praised!  You are beautiful.  And you make us beautiful.
In Jesus Name, Amen
