Praise the Lord ! Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever. He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The Lord frees the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down. The Lord loves the godly. The Lord protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked. The Lord will reign forever. He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations. Praise the Lord! (Psalms 146:1-10 NLT)
“This morning I was awoken by a song of praise in my heart. I did not know where it came but it hit me hard like a shooting dart. My body felt lighter than air and my mind felt more elevated than a chair. It was the Holy Spirit that came into my body and freed the soul that was imprisoned inside my heart of cold.
Give thanks to the Lord today because he always sets the sun in the highest of day. Give thanks to Him today because he is the truth; He cares for orphans and widows too. He never leaves you astray; even when you don’t pray to Him night and day. He is the Lord of great divine and he always makes everything beautiful in His time.
Pray to Him when you are weak but give praise to him when you are strong. Remember that our God is Lord o’er the Heavens and Earth, and there is no man or king on Earth that can represent his worth.”
