Word for the Day: The Name of the Lord to Be Praised

~ Psalm 113:3– The name of the Lord is to be praised. ~

In the Bible, the book of Psalms tells us the name of the Lord is to be praised all day long, from the time the sun rises in the morning until it sets in the evening. The Bible constantly reminds us to praise God at all times.

I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;
    I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.
(Psalm 7:17)

In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus starts by praising our Father in Heaven, “hallowed be thy name.” The same prayer ends by praising God for His kingdom, power and glory, for ever and ever.

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.

Psalm 113:3 NIV

The book of Hebrews instructs us, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise.” (Hebrews 13:15-16)

Why does the Bible spend so much time throughout scripture reminding us to praise God? Probably because it is more in our nature to worry, complain and forget all the things God has already done for us and is doing for us right now. Is your chest moving up and down because you are breathing? Praise God for it. Are your brain’s neurons firing enough for you to read this devotional? Praise God for it.

Praise God daily from the time you rise to the time you go to bed, and your life will be richer and more stress free.
