Let Everything Give Praise Unto Our Lord

Psalm 69:34 (ESV) … “Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them.”


This verse is a doxology of a glowing heart. The writer had fathomed the deeps, and had ascended to the heights; and, therefore, calls on the whole range of creation to bless the Lord. Our Well-Beloved here excites us all to grateful adoration: who among us will hold back?


God’s love to Christ argues good to all forms of life; the exaltation of the Head brings good to the members, and to all in the least connected with him. Inasmuch as the creation itself also is by Christ’s work to be delivered from bondage, let all that have life and motion magnify the Lord. Glory be unto thee, O Lord, for the sure and all-including pledge of our Surety’s triumph: we see in this the exaltation of all thy poor and sorrowful ones, and our heart is glad. [1]


No matter the circumstances of life, we always have reason to praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Reflect today upon his goodness and glory. Praise has the power to lift our spirit and move our thoughts in a positive direction.
