Praising God is easier than you think
From Psalms: A 28-Day Devotional
How often do you think about praising God outside of church on Sundays? The psalmist encourages us in Psalm 150 to praise God every day and in every part of our lives no matter how good or bad.
Psalm 150:2 says, “Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.”
God is great all the time, not half the time or just on Sunday. God wants to be a part of our daily lives and our daily praise. He values time with us. He cherishes it when we thank Him.
God is great all the time, not just on Sundays.
God is also great, not just in one thing, but in all things. Because God is great in all things, we can praise Him in every way. There is no limit to how, when, or where we can praise God.
Driving down the road in the car we can say, “God, thank you for allowing me to have a safe drive.” Or, hanging out with close friends, whisper, “God, thank you for surrounding me with a community that cares.” When we are going through a difficult season financially or spiritually we can say “God, thank you for teaching me and leading me through this.”
Praising God in every circumstance gives us joy and pleases God. God gets glory from every act of praise no matter what shape or form. How are you doing with praising God? Do you take advantage of opportunities to praise Him in all circumstances?
- What is one thing you can thank God for today?
- What is one small way you can praise Him today?
- What is one step you can take to make praising God a part of your everyday life?
