With God there’s unspeakable exultation. Join the angelic chorus in praising him and raise your voices with all your might. Be like thunder when you exclaim, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!” Let these be the mightiest sounds you make. Praise him in humility as the supreme ruler for his everlasting goodness of creation. Do homage to the Almighty who is the truth. He alone is our merciful Father.
St. Augustine (354 – 430 A.D.), an early Christian theologian and philosopher, whose writings have influenced Western Christianity, remarked, “O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.”
Let your songs be known before his throne. Like the heavenly voices proclaim on earth your adoration of his holy name. Praise him like roaring waters which are mighty and fervent. Lift up your voices for the common good of mankind by bringing the good news to all. In touching his spotless face you’ll never tire in quest for holiness.
King Solomon (848 B.C. – 796 B.C.), King of Israel and son of David, remarked, “Kindness and faithfulness keep a king safe, through kindness his throne is made secure.” Solomon in seeking this happiness was considered one of the wisest men who ever lived.
Fervency of Praise
Day and night as we praise God, miracles happen. Play music on harps, rejoicing in the Lamb, exalting his goodness, blessedness, and kindness. Let your sounds flowing forth, be sweetened with excellent melodies. The Spirit of truth is sublimely present and your desire to do good never fades.
Steve Jobs (1955 – 2011), pioneer of the personal computer revolution, observed, “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and everyone should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? So this is what we’ve chosen to do with our life.” He chose the computer and worked miracles with it. Everyone however is able to accomplish a great deal just by praising the Creator of the Universe.
Excited in Praise
Exalting the Almighty calls for constant action. In praising him you’ll be giving credence to the universe’s goodness, holiness, and highest good. Plato (428/427 or 424/423 B.C. – 348/347 B.C.), Greek philosopher and mathematician, wrote, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” Whether through strings, chords, cymbals, drums, or human voices, let sounds elevate us to profound levels of blessings. These are simply amazing and indescribable benefits we gain in praising our Lord.
