“Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens…Praise the Lord from the earth. Let them praise the name of the Lord, For His name is exalted; His glory is above earth and heaven (Psalm 148:1,7,13).
From high to low, and all things in between, the entire spectrum of the created order is designed to offer forth praise to the Creator. Found twelve times in Psalm 148, “Praise the Lord” is not only to be life’s central theme, it is also an imperative verb that commands praise. To praise the Lord is a significant gesture for it displays what we were created to do.
