Message from Harold Harmon, High School Teacher

Psalms 150:  Praise the Lord!  Praise god in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty firmament!  Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him for 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 ye the Lord!

God really does inhabit the praises of His people.  When you praise God, you are recognizing your fallible state in relationship to the infallible creator of the universe.  I find that my praises bring me into a closer relationship with God and it reminds me that everything I have or accomplish is through His guidance and empowerment.  Prayer gives God permission to work on our behalf and is an important element of our prayer life; but praise releases God’s blessings on our life and elevates us into God’s presence.
