Extol Him!

Psalm 145:1-7
I will EXTOL you, my God, O King;
And I will bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you, and I will praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. I will meditate on the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works. Men shall speak of the might of your awesome acts, and I will declare your greatness. They shall utter the memory of your great goodness and shall sing of your righteousness!

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and his tender mercies are over all his works.

I love how this Psalm, like most, are the deep, heartfelt praises of David .. here I this verse, David uses the word EXTOL! 

When I studied this word… I discovered that it's the Hebrew word translation meaning  'highest praises'… The specific meaning of this word is to, hold high, or to esteem greatly. 
Exalted one!… David has such a strong determination to honor and to esteem God... it is indicated by this highly energized verb... before every battle, and every time David needed a breakthrough, he praised the Lord!… Every battle was fought and won first in praise!… Let's EXTOL our wonderful, awesome, magnificent, redeeming, vindicating, healing, loving, restoring, forgiving, perfect God!!
Oh how He loves us and oh how worthy is He of our praises!!!!

Let's give him our abundant, declarative praises! … Great is the Lord, the God of all things possible... there is no one like Him!… He is God Almighty! He is Emmanuel...!  God has such grandeur in the universe and in His presence, we are very small frail humans. We need our heavenly Father, who supplies all that we need.
Oh how we can worship and praise our wonderful omnipotent, omniscient God… Great our his powerful works! Apart from Him we can't do nothing!!!
Oh how we need Him!!
We give Him all praise and glory we EXTOL His Name!!!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.

  • Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
