I Sing His Praise

I sing the praises of my God Almighty
I sing the praises of the risen Lamb
I sing the praises of the true redeemer
I sing the praises of the great I Am
I sing the praises of the God of mercy
I sing the praises of the God of grace
I sing the praises of the Lord Jehovah
I sing His praise. I sing His praise

When I was going through cancer, His praise was on my lips. As I lay on my hospital bed, weakened by a stem cell transplant, I would lift my voice up to praise Him in the middle of the night. The nurses just didn’t quite get why I could praise God when I had cancer. But I had my reasons – lots of them. First ands foremost, He saved me. He called to me when I least expected it and I answered that call. I was far away from Him, basking in the dull glow of sin, thinking I was OK. But the pr3eacher that night convinced me I was not OK, that I was headed for hell;, a terrible place I decided I did not want to go to. I raised my hand for salvation and before I left Iowa on that vacation I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Right there, that is enough to praise Him every second of every day. I don’t need any other reason to give Him praise.

Now he daily gives me reason to praise Him. I have a wonderful family, a blessed life and so many things that God has brought my way. I have a million reasons to praise Him. I give Him praise all the time. In the morning, just before the dawn, I praise Him. In the heat of the day I praise Him. As the sun sets at night, I praise Him. In every circumstance, every trial and every trouble, my praise goes up to Him because I know He is with me. Any Christian who does not praise Him is missing the mark. We were made to praise Him, have fellowship with Him and be devoted to Him. He is a faithful, righteous, gracious and merciful master who loves us more than we can fathom. Give Him praise today!

Psalm 147:1 King James Version
147 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
