Psalm 148, Everybody Everybody!

Key Verse

Praise the Lord from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps, fire and hail, snow and frost, stormy wind fulfilling his command! Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars! Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds! Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! Young men and women alike, old and young together! Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven.
— Psalm 148:7-13

RCL Daily Devotion for Saturday, May 18, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

This psalm is nothing but a party, I tell you! It’s all God’s, everything and everyone, from the very beginning of time and space, all is God’s. God is the one and only constant in an ever-changing creation. How can we not praise God’s name?

Take a moment to revel in the joy. A life of faith is not an easy one. We are called to sacrifice and to work for the reign of God. But I, for one, can’t help but look around at the incredible beauty of all that God has created and want to start boogieing, especially when I see all of creation boogieing with me!

My favorite animal is the frog. No joke. Recently, I got ahold of a nature DVD in which David Attenborough (my favorite naturalist ever) talks all about these incredible creatures. I was like a giddy kid watching this silly video, laughing out loud, rejoicing in the beauty and variety of these little miracles. God is good, I tell you!

Party on, fellow creatures!

Eternal God, I praise your name with all of creation, overflowing with abundant joy at all that you have made. Amen.
