Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!
Today’s Thursday Encouragement:
Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all you stars of light!
Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all the depths;
Kings of the earth and all peoples:
Princes and all judges of the earth;
Both young men and maidens;
Old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
Psalms 148: 3, 7, 11 – 13
Do you remember last week we talked about how vast the heaves are, and how many billions upon billions of stars there are, and the billions of galaxies? (click here to see last week’s post).
Did you know that even the stars in the heavens praise God? How about the great Whales that swim in the oceans? Yes, they too sing praises to God!
Do you recall the story of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem? When all the people were praising and waving palm fronds, some of the Pharisees called out to Jesus and told Jesus to rebuke those that were praising. He replied with this verse (Luke 19:40) “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”
How can we keep silent when all the earth gives praise to His great name?
I recently ran across this youtube video from Louie Giglio talking about the Stars and Whales singing praises to God. Take a listen!
Now it is your turn!
What Bible verse is blessing you today?
