A Life of Praise
The Upward Look

“Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart, In the company of the upright and in the assembly.” Psalm 111:1 NASB
The psalmist declares, firmly asserts, that he will worship and praise God. This declaration is an imperative command, a call, a summons, for all people to praise the Lord. With a sincere and pure heart that is solely committed to the Lord, the psalmist praises, thanks, extols, and exalts the Lord. The psalmist worships God in private. He publicly worships in the church, the smaller company of the upright, with those who by faith are made righteous. He also praises God in the larger public assembly.
Lord Jesus, I boldly and emphatically declare Your praise weekly in my church and daily in private and in public. Let my voice and my actions give You praise, honor, and glory.
