"Praise, Lord"

My initial thought was to do an occurrence by occurrence commentary on ‘praise’, writing a deep and profound analysis on each occurrence. I can hear the snickers all the way from Washington State. Then I thought of grouping the occurrences by some commonality of object. Aha, that began to work as soon as I realized that there is only one commonality. EVERYTHING! We are called to praise the LORD, God, the Almighty in everything. Everything we do, say, think, Everything! Every instance of our life must be to glorify and praise Him.

Now that does lead me to another observation. “Praise, Lord” occurs in 82 verses, 207 times in the entire Scripture. Compare that to the 111 verses in the Psalms that contain 134 directions to praise the LORD. I believe this is a very strong indicator of the Pslams are where we need to go for instructions regarding how the LORD, God, the Almighty wants to be worshiped.

Reading

Morning Psalm 95, Noon Psalm 119:81-88, Evening Psalm 27. If you follow this regimen, you will pray through the Psalms every 47 days or just under 8 times per year.

An alternate Reading Plan is based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.

Or set your own reading schedule up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits. But a daily time in the Word of the LORD is an absolute.

Suggested Supplementary Reading

The Christian’s Creed: Embracing the Apostolic Faith by Dr. Stanley D. Gale. There is also a workbook available.
