Yesterday and today, the psalmist has been beating a very repetitive drum. Psalm 147 & 148 both call for God's people to praise Him but he also calls on creation to join in and do its part. The psalmist calls on stars, snow, sun, moon, water, mountains, kings & princes, beasts & cattle, creeping things and so much more to praise the Lord!! Many believers simply assign 'praise' to Sunday morning worship services. But when the Scripture calls on God's people (or creation) to praise Him, He is referring to more than a Sunday morning experience.
So we need to ask ourselves, "What does praising the Lord look like for 'hail'"? Yes, 'hail' is called on to praise Him! (Ps. 148:8) Texas sees its share of hail, as Dallas roofs will attest, but people do not normally communicate their appreciation for this part of creation. Yet, hail can praise the Lord...but how? By 'fulfilling His word' (Ps. 148:8). Praise or worship is something that occurs when created 'things' fulfill their created purpose. When creation does what the Lord has created it to do, He receives praise!
What is your purpose? Why has He created you and to what purpose are you called? Jesus said, "By this is my Father glorified (praised/worshiped) that you bear much fruit" (Jn. 15:8). Your calling is to praise your heavenly Father. You do this not simply by singing between the hours of 9am and Noon on Sunday mornings but by 'fulfilling His word.' Find your purpose and praise Him with your life!
