Worthy of Our Praise

Worthy of Our Praise

February 8

Read: PSALM 147:1-11

“Praise the Lord! How good to sing praises to our God! How delightful and how fitting!” (v.1, NLT).

In the beginning years of my faith walk, my praise to God was due to something he did for me. God, thank you for this parking spot. God, thank you that I made it on time to the meeting. God, thank you for opening the door to this amazing opportunity.

Now hear me when I say it is a good thing to praise God for the good he is doing in your life. However, God is worthy of our praise beyond the things he does for us. God deserves our praise for simply who he is. He’s a loving God. He’s a faithful God. He’s a merciful God. When we shift our focus to his heart for us and not merely the work of his hands, praise is surely fitting. I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth (Psalm 34:1). He is worthy of our praise.

Father, through the ups and downs of life may our praise to you be consistent. AMEN.

Aisha Cox | LOUISVILLE, COLORADO | I was born and raised in Southern California. My life changed drastically when I surrendered my plans to God’s purposes. I have a huge passion for the arts and mentoring the next generation. I have been mentoring students for the past 10 years and they bring me great joy! A typical small group with me involves transparent conversations, prayer, and dancing. Ministry was never my plan, but I know I am called for such a time as this. My husband, Maurice, and I are teaching pastors at Ascent Community Church. We are both students at North Park Theological Seminary.
