Hi my friends and readers, this year is just about gone and a new one to begin. As I reflect on the years past and look to the days and years ahead, there has been so much and will be so much in the days ahead to give praise to our Creator and sustain-er for! Let us now look at some more Scriptures about praise and praise Him for these Scriptures!
King James Version (KJV)7For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
1 Corinthians 14:15
King James Version (KJV)15What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
Our praise should be offered with understanding that He is worthy of all praise!
Psalm 1031Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

We are to give praise with our complete heart!
As this year quickly winds down, there have been many disasters occurring around us in this old world that groans and complains as we do sometimes. Even in times of disappointment and sorrow we can find reasons to praise God. Here are a few verses of Scripture about why we should praise Him. Psalms 103:3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Here it talks about His spiritual health He gives us through His Son, the great doctor. Psalms 28:6Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. Psalms 118:21I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. We can praise Him because He answers prayer! Psalms 103:Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Ephesians 1:3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: We praise Him for all His spiritual blessing that would take us forever to count! Happy New Year my friends!
As I open my eyes every morning, no matter the conditions surrounding me, there are so many things already to praise Him for and be thankful for. Praise Him for being able to open my eyes, praise Him for His safety through the night and His leading through the days behind and the days ahead and praise Him for salvation and a home in Heaven with Him one day.
Psalm 71:6-8King James Version (KJV)6By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee. 7I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge. 8Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
Psalm 40 1I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. 3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
1 Peter 1:3King James Version (KJV)3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus this time of year, we have so much to praise God for! We praise Him for His mercy; we praise Him for His grace; we praise Him for His love and we praise Him for Jesus and the salvation we have through Him. “And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,” Luke 1:76-78 KJV
King James Version (KJV)
28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
This is my seventieth birthday and there has been so many days of praising Him in all my up and downs. Today we are looking at a couple more verses from the Bible about why these should be days of praise.
Psalm 1031Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits 3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Hosea 14:2King James Version (KJV) 2Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips. We can always praise Him for His forgiveness and His salvation!
1 Kings 8:56King James Version (KJV)56Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. We praise Him for keeping His promises!
If everyone gave someone a smile everyday, the world would be a happy place with a happy face!
Even though December 25 is not really Jesus’s birthday, it is a day set aside to remember a day that God chose to come to earth as a babe in a manger and not as a mighty king. He came because He loves us and came to redeem a lost world.
