“I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.” Psalm 18:3

“I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1

I hadn’t planned to go to the park when I did. I went because the Lord sent me. He knew what He was doing. He always does. Almost as soon as I arrived with paralyzed doggies Mr. Simeon and Miss Mercy in their wheelchairs, a woman where the people who are homeless and addicted to drugs often stay excitedly walked up to us. Turns out she had a cane and had undergone surgery for a spinal problem. There she stood thrilled to be meeting two dogs with spinal injuries. Did she stand there complaining about all that she had gone through? No!

She ecstatically exclaimed a whole bunch about the Lord including this:

“He is worthy to be praised!”

See the first verse above? Yes, He is worthy to be praised! There are so many reasons to praise the Lord, there are not words enough! There is not time enough! There is not opportunity enough! Forever won’t be enough to praise the Lord! But then, forever is endless, isn’t it?

“My flesh is still prone to complaining,” I basically told the woman. “But the Lord tells us that praise should continually come from our mouths.”

See the second verse above?

Got the message? It’s one I need. Maybe you do also.

Let us praise the Lord – continually. And, when we forget, may the Spirit of the Lord remind us however He chooses to do so. Like right from the pages of the Bible. Like directly in our hearts. Like through people such as the woman with the cane and the spinal cord surgery in the park.

Praise the Lord, oh, let us praise the Lord, AMEN!
