1 It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.
I am so thankful that we have Christian Radio Stations near us. I have downloaded two of them onto my Cell Phone and listen frequently. One is 89.3 FM Family Life Radio from Bath New York, and one is 99.5 WDCX Christian Radio in Buffalo NY. Both Radio Stations play lots of uplifting praise songs to our great God.
Often while I am cleaning, cooking, or weeding, even biking, I will take a listen to something uplifting and praiseworthy. And naturally I sing along. Good thing not too many people are in the vicinity. But the Bible says, “make a joyful noise unto the LORD” and I do! What about you? Do you lift the rafters in praise and song and give it all you have to sing unto our God?
This Bible Verse from Psalm 92 reminds us, it “is good” to do so. It lifts us up. God is present in our praises!
Perhaps you sing in a choir, or play a musical instrument. Maybe you enjoy singing solos? That is wonderful to praise God and proclaim His faithfulness with all your heart. You can bring others into worship this way as well.
The point is the Bible encourages us to give our heart-felt thanks to God in song and with instruments.
Have you had one of those days when you begin and end with God? Many of us are so busy we neglect this.
I have a wall hanging which reminds me to do this. “In the morning I will sing of your love.” Psalm 54:16. It is in a visible location. I see it in the morning as a reminder, but even then sometimes I don’t do it. Part of my thankfulness to God is writing this blog for His glory and honour. I can’t help but write about my God with heartfelt thanks.
In this day and age we have remarkable resources to draw near to God in worship and praise. Many have wandered and squandered these resources? Online Radio, Podcasts, Free Bible Apps, Instagram and Facebook Posts about the Bible, and You-Tube with Church Services online. Yet we live in a society that perishes for lack of knowledge. Why is that now?
Perhaps we have too much? We don’t hunger after it and it saturates us with knowledge, or at least it should? Or maybe we are too busy with our work, our families, our lives? Many do take time to praise God through worship and song. That is a good thing. May we never stray from doing so.
As our weary heads rest on our pillows at night, may we then to remember to end the day in gratitude for God’s faithfulness to us. Just reflecting on a few thoughts of God’s goodness before we rest for the night. There is no better way to end the day, if we can remember to do so?
To end for today, here is another Bible Verse that supports Psalm 92:1-2…
“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.”
Let’s make Thanksgiving Day, every day.
