Psalm 147:1 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our GOD; for it is pleasant; and praise is appropriate.
We have a command from the LORD . Praise ye the LORD. Why do we praise the LORD? Please consider the mercy and love of GOD. We stood condemned before GOD. We were guilty of breaking GOD'S moral law. We had no hope. We were hopeless. We were without strength, lost, spiritually blind, alienated from GOD, enemies of GOD, in a far country, spiritually naked with no covering for our sin.
Ephesians 2: 4-7 reads "But GOD who is rich in mercy, for His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in sins hath made us alive together with Christ, by grace you are saved; and has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus."
Why do we praise Him? He is worthy. He has redeemed us. He has rescued us. He has forgiven us. He has covered us with His righteousness. We belong to Him. We have a future and a hope. We sing praises to Him because it is good to sing praises to our GOD. It is pleasant to sing praises to GOD. Why? because He is our GOD. We are His people. Praise is appropriate.
Singing praise to GOD brings honor and glory to our Father and our GOD. Singing praise to GOD brings joy to the heart of the child of GOD. Nothing is more meaningful to a true child of GOD than to sing and give praise to our GOD. It reminds us of His greatness and what He has done for us. I am reminded of the praise hymn that says " praise Him, praise Him, praise Him in the morning, praise Him at noon time, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him when the sun goes down. Psalm 150:6 says "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
