14 December 2018

December Topic: Thanksgiving

God's promises are sure!

Let's spend this month, the last of the year, reminding ourselves that His promises are sure and certain, and then let's become a grateful people!


Psalm 148:3

PRAISE HIM, SUN AND MOON...ALL YOU SHINING STARS

Just because I can't hear them doesn't mean they don't!

God says in Job 38:7 "Were you there when I laid the foundations of the earth?...while the morning stars sang together?" Just because you or I haven't seen angels doesn't mean they don't exist. Talk to Elisha - he had to pray for his servant to 'see' them.

Yes, David acknowledges and affirms here that the creation of God - IS GOOD - just as God said it was at the end of each day! And since it is good - being part of God's goodness and His creation - then it should and could praise the Lord.

As Paul puts it in Colossians 1:16 "ALL things were created by Him and for Him." Therefore having been created for Him, 'they' should all Praise Him in response. That's the mechanical view, the technical view, and the intellectual view!

But what about you and me? Do YOU think the sun; moon and stars 'should' praise Him? I do! You see, my God is most worthy of praise. He is the ultimate reason for praise. He has blessed us with such a beautiful world; He is such a Holy God; He is so majestic; He is so Almighty; He is so pure; He is so loving and kind; He is so gracious and merciful; He is our constant Provider.

Yes, let everyone, let everything that has breath, "Praise the Lord!" More than that - Let everything on earth "Praise the Lord!" Let everything in the sea "Praise the Lord!" Let everything under the sea "Praise the Lord!" Let ALL created beings "Praise the Lord!" Let ALL OF CREATION "Praise the Lord!" Let sun, moon and stars "Praise the Lord!"

Why? Because God is worthy of praise, He is worthy of all our praise, and the praise of all things because He has created them and without Him they would not exist - nor would we! Above all that He sustains them all. The sun, moon and stars stay in their orbits. The stars declare His handiwork and enable us to navigate around this world. The sun is restrained and maintained by His power, glory and faithfulness.

Oh yes, God is most worthy of all our praise. But more than that -

He is WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE!

From all His creation including Sun, moon and stars!
