Praise Be to God

Rejoice and praise God, for He is good. He made the heavens and the earth, gave us dominion over all things under the sun, and blessed us with the power of His name. All glory belongs to Him. He has withheld nothing from us. His greatest gift, the gift of eternal life, He gave through His son Christ Jesus whom He sacrificed for the forgiveness of our sins. Praise Him always.

Should we limit how we give thanks to God? The Psalms tell us otherwise:

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his hosts!
Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars!
Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!

(Psalm 148:1-4)

God has shaped us into who we are, breathed into us life and has given us the desire in our heart to want to know Him. Our love for Him should be without ceasing, for in everything He does, He does because He loves us. There is no limit to God’s love, because God is love.

Whatever we are feeling, if we are sad, if we are angry, if we are hurt, God is there, waiting to comfort us. Our prayers are as incense to Him. They rise to the heavens and fill his throne with the sweet aroma of our praise.

Let us rejoice always for knowing our heavenly Father is there for us. Praise be to God.

  1. One more real raw comment. No matter what happens to me- whether I’m condemned to hell, suffering, and never make it to heaven…that is okay, because my joy and delight are in the fact that ALMIGHTY GOD HAS THE ETERNAL VICTORY. And that all these rotten no good people and spiritual agents of darkness who love to go around killing, stealing, destroying,calling other things God, bragging and boasting full of pride- as they RAISE AND PARADE AROUND WITH BRIGHTLY COLORED FLAGS, claiming and processing loudly ‘im married and he/she knows about’- well guess who else knows about ? Almighty God. You forgot about that one, and so as I was saying- my delight is they won’t be boasting,cursing, or full of pride-,they won’t be flying flags, in fact their will be DEAD SILENCE. Ive seen it, witnessed it, and by God’s Almighty Glorious hand, seek to continue experiencing such wonderful miracles of God. At their hour of destruction, let’s hear them brag then about another child of God whose life they’ve taken,tainted,or mauled…let’s see them run down the street with their pretty colored flags then…there won’t be any boasting, only toasting….Glory to Jesus! And just in case u decide not to post this, that’s okay..I’m going to copy and paste to my site. Thanks and May God bless you.

  2. YES, Praise be to God!
