Praise at all times

Psalm 150 is a psalm full of praise to the Lord. David was probably looking at this as something personal. It was a normal way of living to praise his God in all circumstances.
We are not asked here to praise God, but it is a commandment to praise. We are told to praise God in whatever we are doing and wherever we are. It is kind of expected for us to be doing this anyway, as it was for David and his son Solomon early in his rule of Israel.
David didnt care if his praise was loud or full of instruments or even if it was just him on his own singing and worshipping his Lord. As long as he was praising he was happy. As long as he had breath he worshipped. He wanted to praise his friend and Lord, so why dont we? Do we want to worship our Maker, our friend, our God? if not, then why not?

    My poem based on Psalm 150 , may it bless you

    Praise the Lord of the morning
    When the sun rises from its sleep
    Praise the Lord for His excellent greatness
    For His beauty makes me weep

    Praise the Lord when the darkness falls
    And the moon rises high above
    Praise the Lord for His majestic glory
    And His everlasting love

    Praise the Lord in the winter
    When the snow falls on the ground
    Praise the Lord for His glorious presence
    When we stand upon holy ground

    Praise the Lord of the summer
    When the days are warm and long
    Praise the Lord for His magnificent splendor
    And the saints shall sing a new song

    Praise the Lord of the springtime
    When the blossoms on the tree
    Praise the Lord for His holiness
    And for the Blood that set us free

    Praise the Lord of the Autumn
    When the leaves fall to the ground
    Praise the Lord for His faithfulness
    And that His grace abounds

    Praise the Lord when your happy
    And there’s a smile upon your face
    Praise the Lord for His mercy
    And for His saving grace

    Praise the Lord when you’re in despair
    And your pierced by a fiery dart
    Praise the Lord for HIs loving kindness
    That restores your broken heart

    Praise the Lord with your last breath
    As you lie upon your bed
    Praise the Lord for His promises
    To raise you from the dead

    Praise the Lord for all eternity
    As you gather around His throne
    Praise the Lord for His incredible beauty
    As you worship Him alone

    Let trumpet, harp and timbrel praise
    And dance before the King
    Let all with breath praise the Lord
    And with their voices sing

    Hallelujah to the King of Kings
    We worship and bow down
    We sing to you forever more
    And we will crown Him with many crowns

    Hi
    I agree 100% that praise is a command. Isaiah 43:21 states, “The people I have formed for myself shall praise Me”
    It is not a suggestion but a command. The thing is, when people hear the word “command” they instantly want to resist but God commands because He knows there is a blessing if we obey!
    Thank you for following my blog and it is nice to meet you….looking forward to reading more of what you have to share….. πŸ™‚

      thank you for your message. i agree that when we hear “command” we want to rebel. We only have to look at our children to see it! our minds tell us to rebel, but our hearts want us to follow God and do what He asks us to do. we do see amazing blessings when we do.
      Nice to meet you too. Thank you for reading.
