Psalms 133, 134, 135
Focus Verse: Praise the Lord! Praise the name of the Lord, give praise, O servants of the Lord. – Psalm 135:1
This passage doesn’t ask if we want to praise the Lord. It doesn’t suggest that we praise the Lord. It commands us to praise the Lord.
Whether we’re feeling happy or sad, good or bad, going through difficulty or having the time of our life, we are expected to praise the Lord. Why? Because He is good. Because His name is pleasant.
The Lord is great and above all else. He does whatever He pleases, and all that He pleases is good. He performs miracles and His name endures forever. And even if we weren’t sure about any of this other stuff, we are sure about the good that God has done in our lives. We are certain about the work that He has done in our hearts. Therefore, He deserves to be praised.
