I Chron. 29:10  Then David praised the LORD in the presence of the assembly, “O LORD, the God of our ancestor Israel, may you be praised forever and ever!  Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty.  Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours.  O LORD, and this is your kingdom.  We adore you as the one who is over all things.”

It is good to praise the Lord.  It is good to not be ashamed to declare the glory of our God.  It is good to recognize the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty that is our God’s.  It is good to acknowledge that our Lord is over all things and that they belong to Him.  It is good to express our adoration for our God.

Reread the above statement.  Pause and reflect on these things.  Let your heart this day dwell in the presence of our God.  Praise the Lord, our God; He alone is worthy of our praise.

Notice that David praised the Lord in the presence of the assembly.  It is good to praise the Lord from the heart before others.  We praise Him in song and in our testimonies.  It is good to declare to others how the Lord impacts our lives.  We should declare our praises in worship.  We should praise Him in our fellowship times.  We should be so in awe of our Lord that we cannot contain our praises. 

It is always an appropriate time to praise the Lord.  Praise should not be found just in the church.  We should praise Him in our homes, on our jobs, amongst our friends, wherever we may be.  Praise is the expression of our adoration, love and respect for the Lord.  It honors Him when we declare His praises.  Praise comes forth from a heart that is right with God.

Praise supersedes circumstances and feelings.  Praise the Lord always, for He is worthy.
