I Praise Because...

today's reading.
Psalms 113    Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD!...

think about it.
What are the "big picture" reasons for praising God (113:1-6)? What are the more personal reasons for praising Him (113:7-9)? Where does your praise usually focus? Jot down your own response to the question "Who is like the Lord our God?"

the blog.
Praise the Lord is the big call to action in Psalm 113. The psalmist takes the first three verses giving us that call and then spends the final six verses of the passage giving us reasons for our praise. 

So I thought it would be fun to answer the call to praise today and I'm hoping you'll join me. Consider the statement below and fill in the blank with something specific to your life.

I praise the Lord because _______________.

I thought I'd start us off with a couple of my praise items: 1) I praise the Lord because He loves me even in those times I don't act very loving to Him. 2) I praise the Lord because He has allowed me to use my love of music and singing outside of my full time job with Back to the Bible. Tami W.
