Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He commanded and they were created
From the highest heaven to the lowest valley, all of creation praises our Father. He commanded, they were created, and they commend His efforts.
From above, the psalmist calls for the sun, moon, stars, and clouds to praise Him. From earth below, he calls for a response from the oceans, mountains, and forests. He commands the cattle, sea creatures, and birds to give thanks to their Creator.
At this beautiful time of year, all creation joins to magnify His name. The trees burst forth their riotous robes of color and clap their hands for joy as the wind teases their leaves. The mountains and hills sing in tones of aspen yellow and dancing goldenrod. The geese honk of His greatness as they wing their way south under a high, cloudless, autumn sky. The bountiful harvest extols His goodness in a cornucopia of pumpkins and produce.
All around us, creation reminds us to praise the Lord! The earth and His creatures know that they are created by Him and for Him – to point to and praise His majesty.
The psalmist rallies us to praise, too. From the tiniest babe in arms to the gray-headed elder, he summons us to exalt our God Who reigns over all. Join in the symphony of praise with all God’s creatures today. Praise the name of the Lord!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Let all of the earth – all of His creation – worship and praise His name! Make His praise glorious!
