Christian friends, I greet you in the name of Jesus. No other name is greater than the name Jesus: our Lord and our Savior.

Do you have a reason to praise God? We do not have to ponder long and hard for a reason to praise God. In fact, before we get out of our beds God starts overloading us with reasons to praise Him. We can open our eyes and have faculty of our limbs. We can move our lips and produce sound. We can hear the birds outside using their ability to the fullest to make a sound of praise. Yet we have taken for granted the blessings that God has freely given unto us. So much so that at times we can complain about the blessing not being to our liking before we praise Him for it. How many times have we complained that our body hurts or that it fails to work as well as it once did? Have you ever complained about the difficulty that you were having giving God praise instead of just giving Him the best praise that you could? Have you ever complained about how much it hurt to walk while you were walking? I have. In spite of that, God allowed me to continue moving. Psalms chapter 150:6 says, Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

One Glimpse at the beauty of the sky gives us reason to praise God. God has painted the sky with an incomparable masterful skill. We can give God glory for the white clouds that dance across the blue canvass that is contrasting in color, unapologetic in its vastness and bold in its consistency. All the while, the sun stands to one side, as a proud father, shining so brightly that time measures its vanishing point as well as distance. The night, the changing of the canvass, displays a captivating, mesmerizing, and awesome view of God’s dexterity. He has peppered the black canvass with silver sparkles that have given us designs such as the Big and Little; moreover, the silver sparkles, that loosely grasp the black canvas, portrays itself as a compass guiding the lost home from a journey. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Psalm 150 tells us:

1. Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

2. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

3. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

5. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals.

6. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

Until the next time: Join in as we Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord.

May the God of Glory keep you.
