Give Him Praise

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Psalms 150:6

From the scripture above, the only one exempted from praising the Lord is the one with no breath, in other words the dead. If you are reading this, it means you are alive so Psalms  150:6 is talking to you.

As long as you are alive and breathing you have to give praise.
Why do we give praise?

Firstly because we were created to give praise, we were made to give God pleasure. Revelation 4:11

Even the distractions of life through cares, worries, anxieties must not stop this God given assignment. 
We must not allow at any time the praise of God to depart from our lips. Psalms  34:1

When we praise the Lord we are acknowledging that we belong to God and that we are the sheep of his pastures. Psalms 100:3.
This means you are not fatherless or a bastard. Someone owns you and that person is responsible for your upkeep and he will take care of you.

When we praise the Lord we are acknowledging  what Ecclesiastes  9:4 said. A living dog is better than a living lion. Only those who are alive can make plans for tomorrow because there is hope for the living but a dead man no matter how big or influential he was is now history.

Praise God because he is good  to you, praise him because he has a goodly  plan for your tomorrow, praise God because today's  story is not the final story. Praise God because he is a true and faithful God who will bring to pass the beautiful plans  he has for you.

Above all Praise God because you are alive.

Let everything  that has breath praise the Lord. Alleluia.
