Delight in Praise to God
Greetings, Loved Ones, on this Monday morning, the last day of January 2022! Let’s celebrate this new day with an attitude of praise and thanksgiving!
GOD lavishes us with His lovingkindness and tender mercies every second of our lives. For that, we should be immersed in gratitude to Him. As you spend time in your quiet place, let the words of Psalm 145 AMP enrich your heart to express praise to GOD for His greatness and how profoundly thankful you are to Him. Be empowered by your words of praise. When you paise GOD, the enemy has no room in your mind and heart.
1 I will exalt You, my God, O King, And [with gratitude and submissive wonder] I will bless Your name forever and ever.
2 Every day I will bless You and lovingly praise You; Yes, [with awe-inspired reverence] I will praise Your name forever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is [so vast and profound as to be] unsearchable [incomprehensible to man].
4 One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty and remarkable acts.
5 On the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
6 People will speak of the power of Your awesome acts, And [with gratitude and submissive wonder] I will tell of Your greatness.
7 They will overflow [like a fountain] when they speak of Your great and abundant goodness And will sing joyfully of Your righteousness.
8 The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9 The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works [the entirety of things created].
10 All Your works shall give thanks to You and praise You, O Lord, And Your godly ones will bless You.
11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power,
12 To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts And the glorious majesty of Your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
14 The Lord upholds all those [of His own] who fall And raises up all those who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to You [in hopeful expectation], And You give them their food in due time.
16 You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 The Lord is [unwaveringly] righteous in all His ways And gracious and kind in all His works.
18 The Lord is near to all who call on Him, To all who call on Him in truth (without guile).
19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear and worship Him [with awe-inspired reverence and obedience]; He also will hear their cry and will save them.
20 The Lord keeps all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh will bless and gratefully praise His holy name forever and ever.
Prayer: Great and Mighty GOD, thank You for who You are to us and in us, Your children. Please forgive us when we lack in our reverence for You. We delight in You and offer our love, praise, adoration and thanksgiving to You as You continually shower us with Your blessings. In JESUS’ Name. Amen.
