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, 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!
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.
9 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!
