“And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” (Luke 19:39-40)
The Bible tells us that ALL creation worships Him, the Creator. It is odd that if all of creation recognizes Him as Creator and that He is the object of its worship. So, why does man have such a problem with it? One would assume it has something to do with the “will” of man.
What do you “will” to do? Hopefully offering the sacrifice of praise and heartfelt worship is of top priority on your daily agenda. The Lord was very plain in his remark that if His disciples failed to give Him the praise, that the very stones would cry out in worship of Him—creation praising the Creator.
Make it a habit of joining the rest of God’s creation and praise Him. He is certainly worthy. It would be horrible to one day find out that our praise was absent and the very rocks had to voice their praise in our stead.
Praise His Holy Name…He’s Worthy!
Father, You are worthy of our praise. Forgive me, Lord, for those days when my lips are shut and praise fails to pour out from a humble, submitted heart. May I never cease to praise You. Right now, Lord, I join with all of creation in praise of You, the One who made heaven and earth and all that in them is! Hallelujah, for You are worthy of our praise, amen.
“Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” (Psalm 150)
