Happy New Year — 2021

Who knows what is going to happen in 2021? God does! Praise Him!

LORD Jesus, we praise You for You are a great and loving God. You are infinite, from everlasting to everlasting, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. From the beginning You already knew all about this year, and You are the One who knows what will happen in 2021. You have seen and known us before we were even formed in our mother’s womb. Help us, O God we pray, that we may step boldly into this new year knowing that You have always been, that You are still, and that You will always be sovereign and in control of our days. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

Praise the LORD!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD!

Psalm 150

Matthew Henry comments on this verse that God is to be praised with expressions of joy and that it is every one’s business.

My old pastor, after quoting this psalm, used to say to his congregation: Do you have breath? Are you breathing? Then praise the LORD!

In 2021, continue to study the Word of God, pray for yourself and for others, and take every opportunity to praise the LORD.
