TOPIC: Praise: An Expression of Love
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: Psalm 145:1-21
IN TOUCH DAILY DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
The Lord described David as a man after His own heart, who would do all His will (Acts 13:22). What does that look like? How can we know whether this characterizes us?
The answer is found in David’s psalms. The Lord was the priority of his life and the object of his trust and worship. His love for God overflowed in his words of praise. In fact, this description applies to anyone whose heart resembles the Lord’s.
In Psalm 63:3, David said, “Because Your favor is better than life, my lips will praise you.” Is this how you feel toward the Lord? Do you love Him with the same unashamed enthusiasm David exhibited? Of course, some people are more prone to fervent displays of worship than others, but our hearts should all be motivated by the same kind of love and devotion.
The Lord is worthy of praise. He is our King, our Protector, and our refuge. What’s more, He saved us from condemnation and eternal death! Since God deserves to receive praise offerings from His people, let’s give Him the glory that is rightly His.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ephesians 1-3
REFLECT: When we know the Lord and realize how much He has done for us, we can’t help but love and praise Him!
