“Sing Praises to our God”

Key Verse

“He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.” Psalm 47:3

Text — Psalm 47:1-9


God is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty. He is awesome, full of majesty and glory and worthy of our praises and adoration. The psalmist realized this and always praised God. He also wrote many psalms (songs of praise) in adoration of God which we are reading today. We can sing praises to God by clapping our hands, singing hymns and choruses and raising our voices in adoration. We must sing God’s praises with the understanding that He alone is worthy to receive them. Kings of the earth love it when their subjects praise them; they then promise and give them good things. How much then do we receive from our heavenly Father Who is rich in all things both in heaven and on earth.

Paul and Silas found themselves in prison for preaching the gospel. Instead of being in sorrow, they lifted up their voices and sang praises to the most high God. Their chains were loosed and God was glorified. Remember the price Christ paid for your redemption, the mercy of God surrounding your life, provision for all needs and the hope of getting to heaven to live with God and Jesus forever. Let this make you praise God endlessly.
