I will sing your praise, O God
Psalm 138 New International Version 1984 (NIV1984) Psalm 138 Of David. 1 I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart; before the gods I will sing your praise. 2 I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
Just as The Lord’s Prayer teaches us to pray, these few scriptures could be the guideline for the beginning of every word spoken in prayer. How can I say anything more appropriate and more meaningful than what David says in this psalm?
When we praise God if it is not with our whole heart, then what purpose does such praise serve? When we sing of God, if we do not sing His praise before the entire world, are our songs not hollow? We must learn that God requires nothing less than the fullness of our love and devotion toward Him. Will you bow down your knees with me before the throne of the Almighty God and praise Him for Who He is?
PRAYER: Precious Father, help us to know, really know, what it means to praise you with our whole hearts. You are worthy of all praise and honor and we pray that we, your children, would learn how to give you the praise you so deserve. Amen.
