Praising God

Psalm 150:2   (KJV)   2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

There are more reasons to praise God than we can enumerate and describe. He is praised in the heavens; He is praised here on earth. God is incomparably great, no other being—real or imagined is greater than Him. The greatest of man’s wisdom borders only on His psalm-150-2-praising-god-2“foolishness.” He’s the creator of this vast universe, the extents of which we don’t even have the capability of illustrating. Who and what can compare with the Incomparable?

Here’s a touching song I remember: “How big is God, how big and wide His vast domain. To try to tell—these lips can only start. He’s big enough to rule this mighty universe, yet small enough to live within my heart.” That’s one of the wonders of our God and heavenly Father. He’s so great, yet He’s so near, transcendent yet immanent. We feel for those who don’t see His grandness, beauty, and love; they’re missing out on the greatest and best.

Others argue about His existence; others doubt His power; others question His love. We believe—reasonably, deeply, and steadfastly. His greatness is obviously displayed and seen all around us. The enormity, the order, the design, the complexity, the intelligence, the beauty—it’s wisdom to recognize: none of these came together accidentally. The universe isn’t; we aren’t. Everything, including us, is carefully and wonderfully designed, with wonderful purposes. It’s necessary to note: joyful and exuberant expressions of praises aren’t confined in a denominational box. Our God is praised in the mighty heavens, He’s praised here on earth; we take part in the joy and pleasure of offering our utmost praises to His Highest. For all He is and all He’s done, we find it only fitting and a delight to praise Him—with all we are, all we’ve got, anywhere we are, all ways we can, and all means we have.
