Declare Praise



I will declare Your name to My brethren;

In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.

You who fear the Lord, praise Him!

David advises those who fear (respect) the Lord to praise Him, even if we can only praise God for the things we have taken for granted-the everyday things.

He tells those descend from Jacob to glorify God. We are to lift God up and let Him be who He is meant to be.

The shepherd king also tells those who are descendants of Israel (Christians are grafted into this group.) to deeply respect God for all the things He has done for us, His unworthy children.

We are made worthy of His love and care because of Jesus.
