This Psalm Begins With Attitude!• The attitude of worship to God constantly.• We need this attitude like David had.• Make the decision to do this as verse one describes. Praise the Lord always!
The True Life of Praise is Daily! • This lifestyle of praise is one that blesses (praises, honors, salutes) God. Ps. 145:2 • Our aim is to do this every day, forever. • How will you bless God and praise Him? • Will it be by your life, song, adoration, thoughts, giving, loving, helping, sharing… ? Luke 9:23
Praise God For His Greatness• God is great and thus abundantly to be praised. Psalm 145:3• His greatness is so vast that it’s unsearchable! Ps. 4:4; 33:8; 119:161• The Lord God is AWESOME!
Necessity To Spread The Knowledge of God• God wants this to be shared with all generations. Psalm 145:4• It takes much work, effort and expense to spread and share the knowledge of God. But still it’s the most worthy of all undertakings! Matthew 16:26; Col. 2:2-3; John 8:32
The Personal Responsibility To Share God’s Truth• Ps. 145:5 “I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works”.• David recognized his personal responsibility in doing this, as we too must realize! Psalm 145:5-6 • Matthew 28:19 “Go ye” means “Go ME”!
