The Scripture reading, this morning, is Psalm 150 about praising God. Praising God "in the sanctuary," praising God with "trumpets," praise God with "dancing" and especially "let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!" (v. 6) I especially like verse 2, this week, "praise him for his acts of power, praise him for his surpassing greatness."
I would add, to this Psalm, praise Him for answered prayer - even if the prayer was answered in a different way than we wanted. One of the men, interviewed last night on one of the news programs, was standing in front of a large pile of debris that used to be his families belongings. He basically told the interviewer he was looking forward to worship tomorrow (today/Sunday) because he needed to 'hear about God' and be in, and supported by, the fellowship of his church.
How big IS our God? Do we really believe God can be with us through these storms, facing these 'giants' and going forward through the changes happening around us? Do we really believe God has answered, or will answer, the prayers even when the answer is not the solution we wanted? Can we 'praise God' with our prayers 'in the sanctuary' and even with our 'dancing'? A little different perspective to think about!
