Psalms 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
What do I mean by “show God some love?”…..I’m talking about giving Him the praise and worship that He deserves and wants from us…His creations…His children. He created us to praise Him. This is what the angels, other created creatures and those who have gone on before us are doing right now.
We will all praise God together like this one day:
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
I was reading the story of George Frideric Handel who composed The Messiah from which we get the well know song known as the “Halleluiah Chorus”. Handel wrote The Messiah in an amazing 24 days without much food and rest and they say with much praying and weeping. I recently heard a statement that he made after he completed this composition. He was found by his house servant in tears and he was quoted as saying “I did think I did see all Heaven before me, and the great God Himself.”
This statement has really affected me. I love the Handel’s messiah and had just watched The Messiah being performed on TV last week. When I was in church this past Sunday…I was filled with so much praise for our God as I thought about what Handel said and how he must have felt when he wrote this. As I sang songs of praise…tears filled my eyes and any problem I had were not in my consciousness at that moment in time. When praising God you feel no pains or sorrow. All you can feel is the peace of God in those precious moments. I think this is why it’s good to bless the Lord continuously.
Show God some love …praise the Lord now. Our physical bodies in our present form….. needs to do this… because our real or heavenly form which is our soul/spirit is going to be doing this in heaven. We don’t have to wait until we get to heaven to give God the praise…we can show Him the love right now in these mortal bodies!
If we are children of God… this is what we should be doing always…..Praising God, thanking Him, singing to Him. Dancing before Him, playing the instruments for Him…using our whole body ,mind and soul to praise Him. Show God some love just because of who He is. You may not have the ability to compose a musical composition for Him but in your own way…show Him some love. There is power in praise. It will draw God to you like a magnet. He will be stuck on you…He’ll inhabit your praise. All grace will abound towards you. You will be so blessed!
Message for today: Show God some LOVE….. And all the praise!
