Devotions for the week: A Song of Praise – Psalm 146 July 5, 2015
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God all my life long. Psalm 146:1-2
The Lord does all good things that we cannot or will not do. No matter what we do or where we are, God remains faithful and acts diligently within this world. We can praise God for the miraculous and merciful things God does for God’s children.
These psalms of praise describe the many things God has done that are worthy of praise.
