Borrowing again from my husband Joe’s blog at www.dlobaptistchurch.com:

“I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.” (Psalms 9:1, 2 NLT)

1. I will praise You.

”Praise the Lord ! Praise the Lord from the heavens! Praise him from the skies! Praise him, all his angels! Praise him, all the armies of heaven! Praise him, sun and moon! Praise him, all you twinkling stars! Praise him, skies above! Praise him, vapors high above the clouds! Let every created thing give praise to the Lord, for he issued his command, and they came into being.” (Psalms 148:1-5 NLT)

Give Him praise today

2. Tell of all the marvelous things God has done.

”The man who had been freed from the demons begged to go with him. But Jesus sent him home, saying, “No, go back to your family, and tell them everything God has done for you.” So he went all through the town proclaiming the great things Jesus had done for him. (Luke 8:38, 39 NLT)

Tell someone today what The Lord has done for you

3. Be filled with joy.

”But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God’s presence. Let them be filled with joy. Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the Lord — rejoice in his presence!” (Psalms 68:3, 4 NLT)

Express your joy to the Lord today

4. Sing praises to His name.

”Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!” (Psalms 150:6 NLT)

Sing Praises to Him today

“Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King over all the earth. Praise him with a psalm.” (Psalms 47:6, 7 NLT)

If you can’t come up with a song of praise, let me suggest one for you today, “You Are My All In All” by Point of Grace.

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
