It is Good to Praise the Lord
"It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,"
Psalm 92:1
"to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,"
Psalm 92:2
Verse 1: "It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,"

Warren Wiersbe says: "It is good to thank the Lord for every day He gives you...As the day begins, you can look ahead by faith and praise Him for His loving-kindness. As the day ends, you can look back and praise Him for His faithfulness."

"It is good" to do 2 things, according to verse 1: (1) "to praise the Lord" and (2) "make music to your name, O Most High."

There is nothing more joyful than happy, positive, radiant saints!

Williams says: "Verse 1 begins with an affirmation of worship: 'It is good [fulfilling and right] to give thanks to the Lord.'"

It is acceptable and pleasing to the Lord for us to praise Him.

Ron Allen says: "Praise is vocal, it is public, and it must be genuine."

Verse 2: "to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,"

This is a wonderful habit to get into to express your love first thing in the morning and to speak of His faithfulness at night.

In looking at these first 2 verses, let us see 4 things it is good to do. "It is good": (1)"to praise the Lord"; (2) "to...make music to your name, O Most High"; (3)"to proclaim your love in the morning" and (4) "to proclaim...your faithfulness at night."

Scroggie says: "...what in the morning the LORD promises, he has by night performed."

Wiersbe says: "Each day has its own set of burdens, blessings and challenges. How you begin and end a day determines what kind of day you will have. Begin your day with lovingkindness. Praise God and thank Him during the day. In the evening, remember His faithfulness during the day. What a great recipe for living a day at a time!"

There are 3 things: (1) Live each day just one day at a time; (2) bracket it with lovingkindness in the "morning and faithfulness at night"; and (3) live it to the fullest. Someone said: "Live each day as though it were your last and one day you will be right!"

As we conclude our worship time this morning, I would suggest we sing a hymn called "Before the Throne of God Above." This is an old hymn written back in the 1800's. It has had a recent resurrection as it is a hymn that is included on one of the Selah albums.
Before the throne of God above I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is love Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in heaven He stands No tongue can bid me thence depart.
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died My sinful soul is counted free for God,
the Just, is satisfied To look on Him and pardon me.
To look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him There! The risen Lamb My perfect, spotless, Righteousness.
The Great unchangeable I AM The King of Glory and of Grace.
One with Himself I cannot die My soul is purchased by His blood.
My life is hid with Christ on high With Christ my Savior and my God.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
