Boasting in the Greatness of God
There is a wonderful song in our hymnal that I would like for you to find and read with me. It is Hymn #122, All Hail the Power of Jesusí Name. As we read use your imagination as you picture the angels falling prostrate or all the redeemed from every age singing a great song of praise.
"All hail the power of Jesusí name! Let angels prostrate fall;
bring forth the royal diadem, and crown him Lord of allÖ
Ye chosen seed of Israelís race, Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace, and crown him Lord of allÖ
Let every kindred, every tribe, On this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe, and crown him Lord of all
O that with yonder sacred throng we at his feet may fall!
Weíll join the everlasting song, and crown him Lord of all;
Weíll join the everlasting song, and crown him Lord of all!"
There is nothing so healthy and beneficial to the child of God than spending time praising God our Father. Whether youíre living in the valley this morning or youíve been experiencing the mountaintops, nothing is so great an exercise as praising the Lord God! You can praise Him when you feel good, you can praise Him when youíre sick. You can praise Him when youíre rich, you can praise Him when youíre broke. You can rejoice in Him when youíre happy, you can rejoice when youíre sad. The Apostle Paul said, "Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice." The psalmist said, " Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness."
Rejoice! Give praise to His holy name! "Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof." Oh, Brother Kevin! You just donít know what Iím going through! You just donít understand my circumstances! If you only knew! Well let me tell you brothers and sisters that it doesnít matter whatís going on in your life, good or bad, youíve got reason to praise the Lord and rejoice in the great God and King we serve! Itís not that you canít praise Him; itís not that you donít have reason to rejoice Ė you just need to be reminded of some reasons to praise Him!
