Praise God!

When I hear Praise God, my first thought is this lovely song, which was the doxology sung at the church I grew up in. I cherish these beautiful words, as they are simple, yet eloquent and full of meaning.  Deep meaning.

Praise God, Have you ever wanted to praise God well? This post gives a beautiful song and 2 powerful scriptures to recall when we praise God.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

Praise God the Father who’s the source;
Praise God the Son who is the course;
Praise God the Spirit who’s the flow;
Praise God, our portion here below!

Amen

Praise God! I had never heard this lovely version before.  I pray it blesses you.

Sing Alleluia.  Alleluia means God be praised.  It’s an expression of worship or praise. It is the Medieval Latin word for the Hebrew word Hallelujah.  I always wondered how to spell this word! Now I know.

The Hebrew word hallelu-yah means “praise Jehovah” according to Dictionary.com.  It’s so easy to search a word today – Praise God! I used to have to pull out the B I G dictionary or go next door to the neighbors or to the library to dig into the Encyclopedia Brittanica.  Oh how I loved looking for treasure in those troves!

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)

Yet the best treasure trove is the Word of God.  So praise God that He inspired 66 books to be written over 1500+ years – so we know Him today through Word of the Bible.

he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,  Ephesians 1:9 (NIV)

Praise God-from Whom all blessings flow!

  1. Oh I love that beautiful praise song. We sang it at our church as well. It’s not sung as often today. Most often we are deep in worship with new praise choruses. But, oh that we remember that all blessings flow from God. Blessings my friend!

  2. Praising THE LORD right along with you, sweet Susan! I too grew on that song. What a joy to visit and link-up with you tonight! Peace and many blessings to you, Love! 🙂

  3. I grew up Presbyterian…not cool for a typical teenager;) I’ll admit I always liked singing this at the end of service. Shhhh, told tell anyone! Ha! Beautiful reminder Susan. Thank you!

    1. Meg, when we moved from Texas to Louisiana, there wasn’t an Episcopal church in the small town there. So guess where we started going to church? The Presbyterian church! Small world…HUGS!

  4. I love to think about the truth that when we praise God — even when we are alone — we are joining with “all creatures here below” as well as those in heaven who continually praise God, and they do it perfectly!
    Thanks for this Friday reminder of what’s truly important!

    1. Michele, your comment brought a smile to my face, as all those in Heaven includes my Kyle! Praising God perfectly. WOW. WOWOW! Thank you. Hugs, Susan

  5. Susan, I love that title: Finding Calm in the Chaos. What we all need! And praising God is such a wonderful way to find peace and calm. That’s what our hearts were made for! Lately I’ve been singing the doxology to myself, so your post rings a chord with me this morning!

  6. I love the doxology and miss it now that my current church doesn’t sing it. Praise God to find calm in the chaos… Gonna need this for the next few months, I believe! Thanks, Susan!
