Read Psalm 148


Read Psalm 148

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from heaven,
you that live in the heights above.
2     Praise him, all his angels,
all his heavenly armies.
3     Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, shining stars.
4     Praise him, highest heavens,
and the waters above the sky.c
5     Let them all praise the name of the Lord!
He commanded, and they were created;
6           by his command they were fixed in their places for ever,
and they cannot disobey.d
7     Praise the Lord from the earth,
sea monsters and all ocean depths;
8     lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
strong winds that obey his command.
9     Praise him, hills and mountains,
fruit trees and forests;
10   all animals, tame and wild,
reptiles and birds.
11   Praise him, kings and all peoples,
princes and all other rulers;
12   young women and young men,
old people and children too.
13   Let them all praise the name of the Lord!
His name is greater than all others;
his glory is above earth and heaven.
14   He made his nation strong,
so that all his people praise him—
the people of Israel, so dear to him.
Praise the Lord!

Think

I often rush through the Psalms - looking for some useful data; whatever may help... this Psalm is worth imagining; hear the Psalm call angels, sun and moon, shining stars to praise God.
Think about each image for a moment.

Pray

Lord, the Psalmist reminds me to worship you with all of creation.  Help me to maintain an attitude of worship in all I do today.


c waters above the sky: See Gen 1:6–7.
d by his command ... disobey; or he has fixed them in their places for all time, by a command that lasts for ever.
