Praise Him!

December 28, 2017


Psalm 148

This weekend’s reading: Jeremiah 31:31-34

Praise the Eternal!
All you in the heavens, praise the Eternal;
praise Him from the highest places!
All you, His messengers and His armies in heaven:
    praise Him!
Sun, moon, and all you brilliant stars above:
    praise Him!
Highest heavens and all you waters above the heavens:
    praise Him!
Let all things join together in a concert of praise to the name of the Eternal,
    for He gave the command and they were created.
He put them in their places to stay forever—
    He declared it so, and it is final.
Everything on earth, join in and praise the Eternal;
    sea monsters and creatures of the deep,
Lightning and hail, snow and foggy mists,
    violent winds all respond to His command.
Mountains and hills,
    fruit trees and cedar forests,
All you animals both wild and tame,
    reptiles and birds who take flight:
    praise the Lord.
All kings and all nations,
    princes and all judges of the earth,
All people, young men and women,
    old men and children alike,
    praise the Lord.
Let them all praise the name of the Eternal!
    For His name stands alone above all others.
    His glory shines greater than anything above or below.
He has made His people strong;
    He is the praise of all who are godly,
    the praise of the children of Israel, those whom He holds close.
Praise the Eternal!


  • This Psalm calls for unity in our worship of Christ. How can we do better at being unified with the overarching church of Jesus Christ?


  • What do you praise God for today?

Holy Spirit, work in our hearts. Draw us closer to God. Help us to love in the way you have called us to love. Amen.
