Can't Stop Praising

Bible Reading: Psalm 145: 1 - 12

We can easily tell when someone is in love. This person is full of life  and can’t stop talking about his or her significant other. I could see this when my niece interviewed a couple for a school appointment. When they were asked to describe each other, Mary said of her husband, Eric: ‘I am blessed to have him.’ ‘She’s a great woman,’ Eric responded. ‘No, you’re the best,’ Mary replied. Neither wanted to be the one to stop first.

Similarly, those who love the Lord are full of life and hope, knowing that the love they’ve found surpasses any relationship that the world can offer. Because of this, they can’t stop praising God.

All relationships, even our relationship with the Lord, go through challenges. Can we still praise God when our prayers seemingly go unanswered or when plans that seemed like God’s will don’t turn out the way we expect?

The last question my niece asked the couple was: ‘How has your relationship lasted all these 30 years?’ Both agreed that communication sustains a relationship. Regular prayer and acts of devotion – even when we don’t feel like it – sustain our relationship with God. These, along with reading the Bible, teach us how to praise him in every situation.

Prayer: Loving Father, help us love you the way you want to be loved so we can praise you the way you deserve to be praised. Amen
