‘Praise Him’ all the time

MOORE — Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “praise” as, “to say or write good things about; to express approval; to express thanks to or love and respect for God.”

There have been so many good things happening lately that I just can’t stop whispering my praise to God. There was a song we sang when we were growing up about praise, called Praise Him.

Praise Him

Praise Him, Praise Him,

Praise Him in the morning,

Praise Him in the noontime,

Praise Him, Praise Him,

Praise Him when the sun goes down.

We often added a medley that picked up off the last line: “Praise Him when the sun goes down, for down in the depths I’ll never go, that’s where the devil keeps me low, so I’ll pray with all my might and keep my armor bright so down in the dumps I’ll never go.”

It’s true, when you spend your time praising God, you won’t have time to be in the dumps. Did you know that “Praise the Lord” is found in the Bible 250 times? And we are instructed in Psalm 119:164 to praise Him seven times a day.

If we spend our time thanking God for all of the good things happening around us, we won’t have time to dwell on the negative. After all these years, this advice rings true.

May each of us find at least seven things each and every day to be thankful for and to Praise Him for and let us take notice of how this transforms our lives.

There was a phrase coined many years ago: “Praise looks good on you.” And it does.
