Morning Praise — A Psalm of Praise

This morning my mind is filled with earthly concerns, yet my heart just wants to praise you dear God. I am drawn to the Psalmist who wrote Psalm 150 so many years ago yet it still rings true today.

Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.

Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.

Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord. (NIV)

  1. I love this one. My middle son is a percussionist and part of the worship team at church, so the clash of cymbals part makes me smile. ☺ What a lovely reminder of praising Him in all we do!

  2. An odd pleasant and fun surprise. I just finished reading Psm 150. I also could have captioned my prayer: ‘This morning my mind is filled with earthly concerns, yet my heart just wants to praise you dear God.”
    I watched the sun rise and now it’s raining buckets here. Love the sunset! Have a great day in the Lord.

    1. The Spirit of God is amazing. Sometimes he moves us as a community of believers. I visualize thousands of people reading Psalm 150 this morning, praising God. It is only a shadow of what it will be like when we are with our Lord. Thanks for the comment. Blessings.

  3. A wonderful way to start this (or any) day! I love it when the Scriptures are abundantly clear: Each line starts with the word “Praise.” I think God wants us to being have a praising mindset all the time!

    1. So true. We should have praising mindset all the time. What I love about the Psalms is the emotion and struggles they express. They express so much about life, the emotion and the pain, the good and the bad. But when you get toward the end of the book of Psalms it rises into all out praise for God. It is what we should be doing each day, lifting our eyes to God and singing praises to him despite our circumstances in this world. Thanks for the comment.
