Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised!
The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens!
Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people. He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the Lord! - Psalm 113
A walk around our local lake on a summer’s evening was a lovely reminder of God’s beauty in creation. The red sun was low in the sky, casting a warm glow over the tranquil landscape 🌻🌅.
The psalmist says in v3, “From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of The Lord is to be praised!” The One who sits on heaven’s throne is in control of the universe. There is no-one like Him - “Who is like the Lord our God who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?” (v5,6)
The Lord has raised us from the dust of the ground and lifted up the needy from the ash heap. He has blessed the home with children. Praise the Lord is the opening and finishing line of the psalm! 🙌🏻
Look out for things to praise The Lord for this week. 🙂
