Today’s Bible Thought by Malinda Edgell

“I will thank you, Lord, in front of all the people. I will sing your praises among the nations. For your unfailing love is higher than the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.” Psalm 108:3-4 NLT

I already hear the murmuring…

Oh, Malinda, I couldn’t speak out loud before a crowd.

Malinda, I can’t sing.

Good grief, Malinda! In front of people?

The choir? All the way at the front of the church?

Testify? You mean with all eyes and attention on me?

Give a praise report in Sunday School, me?

Re-read the verse. Go ahead, re-read it.

Does it say anything, anything at all, about ‘what’ you can do?

Do the verses even bring into question your abilities, talents or even gifts?

Is there any mention, of any sort, of how well you do it, how pretty it sounds or how easy it is to do it?

No. No, it only refers to the ’why’ of the matter!

Why should we do it? Because His love is higher than our wildest expectations.

Why should we do it? Because His faithfulness exceeds our needs.

Why should we do it? Because God deserves every ounce of praise we can give Him–and more, much more!

No more excuses, friend. Praise, whether in song or by just opening your mouth, is expected, deserved and what will bring a smile to the Lord’s face faster than anything.
