Yesterday we spoke of now as a time to sing. Today we look at just what our praises mean to God. May the devotional encourage you to praise Him who deserves all praise. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Psalm 22:3 (ESV)Yet you are holy,
enthroned on the praises of Israel.
“Just as God’s ancient people, during the feast of tabernacles, dwelt under booths made from the boughs of trees, so Jehovah is represented as having made for himself a tabernacle out of the praises of his people. They are only like fading boughs, that soon turn brown, yet the great Lord of all condescends to sit beneath them; and, as we each one bring a new bough, plucked from the tree of mercy, we help to make a new tabernacle for the Most High to dwell in.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit LI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1905), p. 302]
