Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
(Psalms 150:6 (NIV))
Do we truly understand the simple truth of these words?
All of creation praises God in all that it is, yet, our intellect often keeps us from doing what God designed us to do. We are to praise Him in all things.
What happens when we fail at this?
Jesus told us exactly what would happen.
“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
(Luke 19:40 (NIV))
What happens when a nation does not praise God?
Another nation or nations will be found that will shout out His praises!
This is exactly what happened when Israel rejected their Messiah when He first came. Because of this, we, the “stones” have been given the opportunity to praise Him.
Unfortunately, some of the “stones” are also keeping quiet. We must not let this happen. We must be ever thankful of the gift of grace and mercy that we have been given. We must shout it with every breath!
Sometimes actions speak louder than words. We can shout with our actions.
No matter how we choose to praise God, we must never lose sight of the truth that He deserves all glory, honor and praise.
How do you praise God?
