Psalm 33:1 “Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.”
[And so it is Lord–it is so very right for us to praise you! You are worthy, for you are holy, you are great, you are wise, you are loving, you are just, you are firm; you are never fearful, negative, unbalanced, unjust, selfish, proud or evil in anyway.
You, Lord God, are Light, you are Life, you are Love–and you share all three with us lavishly! You are worthy of all praise, exaltation and glory.]
Psalm 33:2,3 “Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.”
[You love beauty and music, Lord, and you have given these to us as a means of enjoying and exalting you. To sing and play instruments to give you glory is a wonderful privilege, it is a marvelous gift from you.
Thank you that we can come at any time through the Name and Blood of Jesus into your presence to praise you in song, to express the joy that we have in you–for you are the wonderful, marvelous, eternal, exalted Creator and Sustainer of the universe, full of goodness, devoid of evil, overflowing with grace, holiness and power.
May praise be the keynote of my life; may prayer be the foundation of all I do; and may whole-hearted obedience be the pattern of my days–all bringing honor to you, Lord Jesus.]
