“Let them praise the name of the Lord, For He commanded and they were created.
He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away!” Psalm 148:5-6
In the beginning God said let there be light and there was light. God created all things – there is not one thing in nature that He has not made. He created the heavens and the earth and everything in it. All things were made by Him to glorify Him, and they do so by simply doing what they were created to do.
The sun, moon, birds, trees and even the seas of the earth all function according to the purpose that God spoke in the beginning – and His purpose has not changed.
As the culmination of His creation, we were also created to glorify God. We have been designed to serve Him, to love Him and to enjoy Him forever! God has given us a mouth, hands and feet, eyes and ears, gifts and talents which we can use to glorify Him.
We have much to give God thanks for today! We have been made by a good God and blessed with so many resources with which to serve Him and others. As we do that with all of our heart, we bring glory to Him. We were created to praise Him!
Today’s praise prompt is this: “I will praise the name of the Lord for He has created me in His own image and likeness. He has specially gifted me to ___________________________ and for that I give Him thanks.”
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
