Today you should read: Psalm 33

God is worthy of all Praise

The Call To Praise


The psalmist calls the righteous to bring praises to the Lord. We as believers have been made righteous through the blood of Christ. We should have a natural response of praise and rejoicing for the mercies of God. The psalmist writes of skillful musical ability. Now before you feel as though you are disqualified this is simply a reference that your worship and praise of God should be the best that you can give.

Are you giving God your best in your worship?

Why should we do this?

 1. He is Dependable V. 4-9

The Word of God and The Father are completely upright and dependable. If you have not taken the opportunity lately, go outside of your home into nature and take a moment to see the majesty of God’s creation. The God who spoke this world and all that is in it, form the simplest to the most intricate thing, is the same who has breathed his word for us to be able to read.

Are you believing and trusting in the reliability and dependability of God and His Word?

2. He is the Author V. 10-12

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5. God is not surprised by anything and has an understanding of all that will be as our Creator. And He has still invited us to be a part of the plan that He has.

Are you trusting in His plan for your life and praising Him for it?

3. He is our Hope V. 13-22

The Lord is seated on high, enthroned over all. However, this does not mean that He is distant. He has fashioned the hearts of all and is intricately part of our lives. Many will try to find their hope in things other than the Lord, and they will always come up short. Trusting in Jesus who makes us righteous in the Father’s eyes is what delivers us from death to Life. Everything in our life should be ruled by the Lord as we are in chains for the Gospel and slaves to righteousness.

Is your hope truly found in Him, and do you rejoice in that?

  1. 10 The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
    he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
    11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
    the purposes of his heart through all generations.

    This passage really spoke to me today. It is comforting to know that we serve a God who has everything under His control in a world that can seem so out of control. His plans & purposes are perfect and cannot be thwarted by nations or men.

    Thanks for the commentary Dakota and welcome to the CPC staff.

  2. Praise is the proper response of our heart tomGod be use of the many good and wonderful things he has done for us. I see a fresh voice for an old truth here regarding God’s magnificent grace.

    “Let us not present old worn out praise, but put life and soul and heart into every song, since we have new mercies every day and see new beauties in the work and word of our Lord.” – Chuck. Chuck Spurgeon.
