Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

There’s more to “blessing the Lord” than mere saying it

Minister to God

  • “Blessing” the Lord is ministering to Him, through worshiping and praising Him
  • My youngest son once told me while tucking him to bed after a pleasant horse ride – “you’re a good dad” – that blessed me!

Foot-Tappin’ Good!

  • Paul and Silas were tapping their feet and praising God in prison. An earthquake occurred and the cell doors broke open, but they both stayed with the prisoners rather than escape.
  • They obviously were not praising God to escape but just enjoying His presence, otherwise, they would have fled when the opportunity ensued

Raised From The Dead

  • Our oldest son, Joshua, called and told us his brother, Peter was dead. While driving over, we kept praising God and worshipping Him, being convinced it’s not His will for our son to die.
  • He sat up within five minutes of our arrival, after being dead for five hours

Well, Thank You, Andrew!”

    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
  • While thanking God and praising Him for a successful meeting, I heard Him say to me, “well, thank you Andrew! I appreciate your letting Me use you.”

Ready To Change?

  • It’s important that we humble ourselves and commit to change from our selfish desires to putting God first
