This psalm is a call to praise. It is a call to praise the name of the Lord from sunrise to sunset, from this moment into eternity. It is a call to praise the One who is big enough to see the whole universe all at one time, yet small enough to notice the needs of the poor. It is a call to praise for the One who turns the seemingly impossible into a reality.
Have you ever felt like something you needed was too small or insignificant to bring before God? Has anything seemed so impossible that it seemed pointless to ask for God’s help? In what way might laying everything before God – even things that may seem insignificant in comparison to the needs of others or even things that seem too far gone to redeem – be an act of praise?
Today, try to offer a word of praise at the top of each hour from sunrise to sunset.
