“My whole being, praise the Lord; all my being, praise His holy Name. My whole being, praise the Lord and do not forget all His kindnesses. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He saves my life from the grave and loads me with love and mercy. He satisfies me with good things and makes me young again, like the eagle.
“The Lord does what is right and fair for all who are wronged by others. He showed His ways to Moses and His deeds to the people of Israel. The Lord shows mercy and is kind. He does not become angry quickly, and He has great love. He will not always accuse us, and He will not be angry forever. He has not punished us as our sins should be punished; He has not repaid us for the evil we have done. As high as the sky is above the earth, so great is His love for those who respect Him. He has taken our sins away from us as far as the east is from the west. The Lord has mercy on those who respect Him, as a father has mercy on his children. He knows how we were made; He remembers that we are dust.
“Human life is like grass; we grow like a flower in the field. After the wind blows, the flower is gone and there is no sign of where it was. But the Lord’s love for those who respect Him continues forever and ever, and His goodness continues to their grandchildren and to those who keep His agreement and who remember to obey His commands.
“The Lord has set His throne in heaven, and His Kingdom rules over everything. You who are His angels, praise the Lord. You are the mighty warriors who do what He says and who obey His voice. You, His armies, praise the Lord; you are His servants who do what He wants. Everything the Lord has made should praise Him in all the places He rules. My whole being, praise the Lord.”
(Psalm 103, The Inspirational Study Bible)
Sometimes I just need to let the Word speak for itself.
Let this be your prayer throughout today. Let praise rise up within you. We should never become so comfortable and familiar with God that we forget to praise Him.
Praise Him all ye peoples, praise the Lord!!
Bless You, Father! We give You glory and honor and praise. We praise You for Who You are and we thank You for Your mercy and love. We thank You for Your faithfulness, for Your power. You are the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth! Father, we humbly bow before You and give You praise.
