Psalm 145:13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
Lee Greenwood wrote a song that said; “I’m proud to be and American, where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me. And I gladly stand up, next to you and defend her still today. Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land. God bless the USA.” Every red blooded American loves that song, as it reflects on the country we love. Not to be anti-American, however, people from other nations also may believe that the country they live in is probably the best on this mud ball we call earth. There is nothing wrong with being loyal and proud of your nation, even with all the flaws each one has. Imagine how proud you could be if it and it’s leaders were absolutely perfect. God’s Kingdom is.
In Pslam 145:10 it says; “All thy works shall praise thee.” You may be thinking, not everyone loves the Lord and believes there is a God. True, but it doesn’t say they all praise Him now. But they will. Philippians 2:10-11 says; “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Psalms 145 says the saints will speak of the glory and majesty of this kingdom. They’ll tell of His power and mighty acts. This is a perfect eternal Kingdom, with a perfect righteous leader. Why not praise Him now?
In Luke 19 Jesus told the Pharisees, if the disciples stopped praising Him, the stones would immediately cry out. I sure don’t want some silly rock doing what God created me to do. Why wait for the Coming King. He is King of His Kingdom today.
I ask again, why not praise Him now?
