Praise God!

My heart flips inside my body with praise for God. When I was much younger, I thought that it didn’t take all of that. It didn’t take all that crying, shouting, and screaming Hallelujah. I never quite understood until some of the joy of the Lord filled my soul. I wasn’t in church, but it felt like an outpouring of his love. I couldn’t keep quiet even if I tried to. So I will praise the Lord anywhere I feel a praise coming on. Sometimes, I shout and say, “Hallelujah!” Often I might say, “Thank you Jesus, Hallelujah” within my spirit silently. I will praise God indeed like the psalmist my mind, body, soul, and spirit sings God praise.

Psalm 148(KJV)


148 Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.

He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:

Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:

12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.
