“Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant.” Psalm 135:3 (NIV)
Today's verse is from a psalm that expresses praise to our God. We know many psalms are used to sing praises to Him and we can think of them as loving songs. We are reminded here of how singing praises to God benefits us. Our verse says that it is a pleasant experience. The things which are pleasant are the things that please us and can help us feel good and that's what happens when we sing praises to God. Why is singing praises such a pleasing experience? It's because God is worthy of our praise. As our verse says, “The Lord is good.” Yes, He's worthy because He is God. And He is so good and so loving toward us praising Him is natural. So whether we sing with our voice or sing with our heart lets be praising the Lord today.
