Praise Your Mighty Name

"Sing to the Lord; bless his name. Each day proclaim the good news that he saves. Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!" Psalm 96:2-4(a)(NLV). “For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.” Psalm 100:5(NLV).

God is faithful, just, our redeemer, protector, savior, friend, giver of gifts, creator and so much more. He alone is worthy of our praise and He alone holds the world in His hands. I like that image of the "world in His hands;" because I am in the world so I am in His hands. I want to sit in His strong hands and all consuming love forever.

"How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty. I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God. O Lord Almighty, my King and my God! How happy are those who can live in your house, always singing your praises. Happy are those who are strong in the Lord, who set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs, where pools of blessing collect after the rains! They will continue to grow stronger, and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem. A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked. For the Lord God is our light and protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will the Lord withhold from those who do what is right. O Lord Almighty, happy are those who trust in you." Psalm 84:1-2; 4-7; 10-12 (NLV).
