Let Everything that has breath praise the Lord…
The key to understanding this passage is to understand that breathe meant life to the culture of the Old Testament people. God “breathed” life into man. So basically this means let everything that has life praise the Lord. The essential truth is that praise is the meaning to life. Giving God the glory due him is the very purpose of our creation.
We praise God with ALL of who we are and what we have…
Today praise the Lord for being a God that has made you who you are. Do this by choosing to do something in another person’s life to simply speak to and show them the love of Christ in a real and authentic way. Praise God by being who He made you. This praise challenge is not one where you sit alone in the silence in ponder but a praise of the “living” sacrifice. It will not be over when you 7:07 gets here, it will begin then.
Praise the Lord with some act of generosity, love, kindness, compassion, mercy, grace, forgiveness, etc. with the sole purpose of sharing with someone that great truth about the character of our great God.
