James 72:18-19 – Praise the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone does such wonderful things. Praise his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and amen!


The psalmist here is concluding that the God of Israel is deserving of praise for all things including righteousness, defense of the poor, abundance from the land. God is to be praised forever and all the nations will experience his blessings/glory.


I must remember that all good things come from God and He alone is deserving of all of our praise. While it is important to praise God for specific things in our life like safe travel or a successful operation He is deserving of all praise for who He is and what He has done. We are to praise God and give Him the glory in whatever we do and accomplish! I am to praise God for everything for all time. The great commission is mine and everyone’s responsibility and in so doing, we help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the nations so they may see His glory revealed.


Thank you for who you are and for your salvation. You are deserving of all of praise forever! Help me to be Spirit led to help fulfill your great commission. May the Glory be to You in all things!
