Praising God

Oh Lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and nursing infants to give you praise. They silence your enemies who were seeking revenge. Psalm 8: 1-2 NLT

God is bigger. God's majesty fills the earth. God's glory is higher and deeper than the sky and space.

God is smaller and lives in the least significant. God has taught children and babies to give praise to God. Their voices silence those bent on revenge against God.

Praising God belongs in our community and should be taught regularly to the least of these. Everyone, regardless of age, is capable of giving God praise. The most powerful voices for praising God are those of children.

But how often are we praising God?

When do you praise God? Just in worship during particular songs? When you think about it? When something special happens in your life? When a praise song is played on your ipod? Everyday during your prayer time?

Let's spend our prayer time now in praise to God!

Oh Lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and nursing infants to give you praise. They silence your enemies who were seeking revenge. O Lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name fills the earth! Amen.
