Psalms 150

During my morning meditation The Spirit pulled me to Psalms 150:

Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

As Chaplain Nigolian so poetically pointed out to us last Sunday, we must stay “on mission.”  As Christians, our mission is to live lives which praise The Lord.  Every action and every inaction we take will determine how successful we are in accomplishing our mission.  We have SO MANY reasons to rejoice in the lives which God has so graciously granted us.  As you continue to charge through your busy week, I challenge you to take the time to read this short psalm every morning and see for yourselves how putting your focus squarely on God and rededicating your daily lives to your mission of praising Him changes your attitude, your world, and the world around you.  As Jesus told His disciples, HE is the vine and we are the branches – don’t cut yourself off from your life-sustaining nourishment…PRAISE THE LORD!
