Discussion for Psalms 113

  • Anne
    The Lord is worthy to be praised.
  • Librarygal143
    Amen! I praise God and thank Him for His blessings, from the time I get up, until I go to bed.
  • A disciple
    When we speak of the things of the Lord, we are praising Him. When we try to comfort others and show them from the Scriptures the answers to their troubles and sorrows we are praising the Lord. When we walk in truth in sincerity and a good conscience, and fight the good fight of faith, AND NOT SIN, we are praising the Lord and glorifying our Father in heaven for all men to see. PRAISE YE THE LORD!
  • A disciple
    How are we to PRAISE THE LORD? Throughout the Bible, whenever the Anointed Writers called for Praise and Worship; there is the accompanying recital of God's Wonderful Works Toward The Children Of Men! All His works shall praise Him! A man makes his own praise by his character and deeds of selfless benevolence; HOW MUCH MORE GOD! Who is more benevolent, more kind and gentle and long-suffering? AMEN

    Psalms 113:3 reminds me that God is to be praised everyday of our lives, no matter what the time, no matter where we are, or what we're going through. It reminds me that we shouldn't forget about God and how great he is he's to be praised at all times.

    I love it! He's the starter and finisher of each day. I find value in each verse in the Bible, the life manual
