Bless His Name

I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Psalms 145:1

The word extol, means praise. I am not ashamed to say I love to praise God. I love to sing His praises and worship Him. I have never had a problem with worshipping my Father at all. Although some do, I can’t figure that out, but for some it is a personal thing, they worship Him in their hearts they praise Him with their actions. He is truly worthy of all our praise, and all our devotion. When I praise God something happens, I am encouraged, it seems that I am in His presence and am strengthened. If I have a bad day or week, I know that I have to praise Him. Somehow the flesh has to get out of the way as I pour my heart out in thanksgiving to Him to realize Who He is and what He has done for me. I never thought of blessing Him though, I pray for others to be blessed, and I know He blesses me. So I think I will bless His name today, to try to make it a daily thing, to bless His name. The word bless means:1.consecrate 2.request divine favor 3.make happy 4.extol as Holy . The word consecrate means make sacred, well that to me means revere something, to set it apart special, I believe I can do that this day as I think on Him. I have requested from God before, knowing that only He can work in my life and others. He has made me happy, in so many ways, in a sunrise, a hug, providing for me, the list is endless. I know He is Holy, and I will praise His Holiness all the days of my life. His name is the name above all names, and I get great pleasure from praising Him. He inhabits our praises you know.
