Praise God for Every Thing, Large and Small

September 30, 2020 - LISTEN HERE

Psalms 147:11 

But the LORD is pleased with those who fear him, with those who hope in His gracious love.

This entire psalm is one of praise for the Lord and all that He magnifies in our lives. From comforting the broken-hearted to healing the sick, to providing food for animals to changing the weather, and more. For every thing, He is to be praised.  

To fear the Lord means to “worship Him with awe-inspired reference and obedience” (Amplified). He is also pleased with those who hope – those who have confidence in and feel secure because they know they are surrounded by His love. 

Let's read this verse, replacing the words fear, hope and those with something different: 

But the LORD is pleased with [your name] who worships Him with awe-inspired reference and obedience and with [your name] who in expectation and anticipation, has confidence and security in His gracious love. 

Wow! Look how PERSONAL that makes the passage; it makes the Bible come alive and feel relevant to today's circumstances. 

For all the things He does for every creature on the planet, He is worthy of our praise.

Today’s Prayer
Dear Lord, sometimes Your word is so clear and direct, there is little more to say about a specific passage except thank you. Thank You for who You are. We are grateful for your delight and it makes our hearts sing, knowing that some small act of kindness we have done to others is pleasing to You. Lord, we pray for our country, our constitution, our future. Into Your hands we deliver our hearts, our minds, and our very lives. Thy will be done for us, Lord, that we may follow the purpose You have laid out for us, even before we were born. We love you. We wait expectantly for you. In Jesus Name, Amen.
