“Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” (15-16)
“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.” (Psalm 150:6)
The conclusion of many matters is to praise the LORD. We praise Him with our words, but also in our service to others. It is our deepest fulfilled purpose to praise Him.
In these uncertain times there remain many ways to continue praising Him. It feeds the soul to turn our eyes from circumstance and onto His face. What does your worship of Him look like today?
Is it a centering prayer you pray in the midst of stress? Is it in the way your serve your immediate family, even when you’re overwhelmed?
Praising Him is called a sacrifice. What do you sacrifice to praise Him? Self pity? Rest? He is glorified in the ways we choose to serve, and the ways we choose to rest. He is looking for people to worship Him in truth.
Root yourself in truth today and every day, and while you still have breath, praise the LORD.
Tomorrow we will read Obadiah.
