Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.
6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.
There are many people here on this earth that have invented amazing things that we are using everyday such as cars, planes, phones, internet, electricity and so much more. We are very thankful to these people, for they made our life easier and we even praise them for their ingenuity and intelligence. Nevertheless, many times we look at the creation and what it can do, instead at the Creator who gave the creation the ability and intelligence to create things. God, above all, should be praised for all that we are and for all that we have, for He created all things.
You may say, what should I praise God for? Praise Him, not for the things that human hands have provided to you, but for the things that only God can provide for you. Praise Him for the air that you breathe, for the sunshine that you enjoy, for the rain that falls on the earth. But the most important thing of all, praise Him for giving us His Son, which gave us the opportunity to choose Him and to be with Him and praise Him throughout eternity. Praise the Lord!
