The Word of God and especially the Psalms, are full of praises for our God, the Creator of all!
It is so sad to see and hear how people would just ignore His existence and the fact that He IS the Creator, the Great I AM! The scientists are spending millions to find the “God-particle” while God Himself, His fullness is all around them. You just have to reach out in faith to touch Him and start a relationship with the Savior of all, Jesus Christ.
The other day I was watching a film (a so called futuristic film) and then the one guy talked about prayer and God. The other one asked what is God? The first one replied “Oh, that is the one whom you talk to , to do something for you and then disappoints you”. So sad that the world out there do not recognize the love and power of God! But, yes the finger points right back to us as the Church that we have not portrayed Christ as we should have. We have created a “god” who disappoints; who is not in touch with his children; who does not care about our troubles, who is unfaithful, etc. But the real God and Father of all is quite the opposite.
I want to start off with Psalm 103 (NLV) and with only the first two verses:
- Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name;
- Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me.
There are so many aspects of God to praise and we will come to that as we progress with this blog message, but His name is higher than any other name! Let us praise His name, whether it is in Hebrew (if you are a Jew); or in English; or Afrikaans; or whatever language you call upon the name of the Lord, because the God that we serve is the God of all people and of all languages.
Lord I praise your name for being God of Creation, for being my God and Savior. Teach me o Lord to praise you with my whole heart, with all that I am I want to praise and adore you. Teach me and remind me to never forget the good things you have done for me. Amen.
