365 Blessings- September 7

Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD. (Psalm 150:6)

Lot's of exhortations in psalm 150. The final one being, "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord."

Many things to be noticed here in this psalm and all about praise.
1. In verse 1, the psalmist says, Praise God in, that is, Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.

2. In verse 2, the psalmist says, Praise God for, that is, Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. 

3. In verses 3 to 5, the psalmist says, Praise God with, that is, Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. 

The "Praise God with" part is the largest in this series. The psalmist is considering maximizing his praise and worship with the use of all kinds of musical instruments and with dancing. He intends to be loud with his praise and worship and also is exhorting others to do the same.

"Praise him with resounding cymbals" he says.
Worship is something personal to each of us. Some like to quietly worship the Lord while others like to make much noise. The psalmist here seems to be in the second category. He likes to enjoy his worship by making it lively with the use of many instruments and also by dancing to the tune. He seems to be delighting in the Lord.

Do you delight in the Lord while you praise and worship him? Try it; it can bring you a joy that you may have never experienced.
