“I will extol You, my God, O King, and I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever.” (Psalm 145:1-2)
The Lord has created us to be people of praise. We will praise that which is important to us. We will extol those things we consider important. We were created to serve and to praise. Everyone does this. It is a matter of what you will serve and praise. Come into the presence of the Lord who is forever and worship Him alone. He is the One who is worthy of all honor and praise.
Come, Holy Spirit, and teach me to praise you always. Teach me to find the joy You give and live a life of praise. You have wonderfully knit me together and I have purpose, but only in the truth will I find everlasting purpose. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of righteousness that I would forever walk in the way of truth. Lead me to live a life of praise now and forever.
Lord Jesus, You have taught us that we can do nothing apart from You. You have shown that in Your salvation is the way of life. Guide me into a life of service and praise. Lead me into the way of everlasting life. Teach me the things I need to know that I may now and always abide in the way You have established. Help me to overcome all obstacles that I may learn from You how to live the true life You have created. Amen.
