God fills a father with joy when He praises the Lord
Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
As long as we have breath, we must acknowledge the power and majesty of our Lord. We are to praise Him when we get up in the morning, praise Him in the car, praise Him at work – wherever we are, we should seek to honor Him.
The Bible in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says,
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
You may not understand what is happening in your life, but God’s will in every circumstance is that you praise Him and thank Him in all things. When you do this, God will give you a peace that passes all understanding.
Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: Praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his dmighty acts: Praise him according to his excellent greatness. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, And shall declare thy mighty acts.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
