June 20 – Bless God Who Is Our Hope

Here are a few more praise choruses from the writer of the Psalms to the Maker of it all. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever…  Exalt the Lord, Jerusalem; praise your God, Zion! For He strengthens the bars of your gates and blesses your children within you. God blesses His people because that is the kind of God He is! We praise God with all that we have; God blesses His people, which then leads to more praising. This is a good cycle.   Even if He never gives us one more blessing, He is so worthy of our praise.  Exalt Him.  Let’s let our children and grandchildren know that He is Heaven’s Maker and all good things are from Him. We often sing songs about what we believe; may the music from our mouths honor our God.

Psalm 146:5-6 ESV; Psalm 147:12-13 HCSB
