Today’s discussion is on Psalms, Incense, Praise
Let everything that has
breath praise the LORD.
The Lord shines his love on us each day, “Let your thoughts be psalms, your prayers incense, and your breath praise.”
Let each morning, before starting the day, become a moment to jump-start your mind with thoughts of thankfulness, glorifying God, for he brought you into another day. Throughout the day we can turn our thoughts unto psalms by meditating on God’s holiness, His worthiness of our worship, and how much we need Him. Psalm 90:14 says: “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days”. Psalm 143:8: “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life”.
Let your voice ring out words of prayers, let them be an incense, offering sweet savor to the Lord. Our prayers are like incense to God, bringing to His nostrils the pleasing scent of our adoration and need for Him. It pleases the heart of our Heavenly Father and perfumes heaven. Psalm 141:2: “May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.”
Let your breath be praise, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 150:6). Talking about God and offering Him words of praise should be as natural to us as breathing. Praise to God is what we offer in acknowledgement of God’s excellent being; praise is offered for who God is. Psalm 95:1 “Come let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation!”
Keep the Lord in your thoughts, prayers and speech, all belongs to Jesus’s name. Freely give your hearts devotion to proclaiming His love, for a heart filled with praise bring pleasure to God.
Let this be a day your tongue utter the words, no matter what I am facing and what my mind is feeling, I WILL PRAISE YOU!, I WILL TREASURE YOU ABOVE ALL THINGS!
