June Scripture Writing Plan: Praise and Worship

Happy almost June sweet friends! 
The scripture plan topic this month is one of my favorite things: 
Praise and Worship

Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised.

And His greatness is unsearchable. 
Psalm 145:3

Y'all- there is such great power in praising and worshiping the Lord. 
Praising the Lord takes our eyes off of our lives and pain and issues and our worries
and puts them squarely on what's truly important, HIM. 

So what exactly is praise? 
To me praise...

-acknowledges God as Lord and King of our lives
-gives thanks to Him for who He is and what He does in our lives
-is confessing exactly who God is


Praising God helps us to more fully understand and comprehend who He is and in turn, who we are. It reminds us of his amazing, great, almighty, all knowing power and 
humbles us to realize that we so desperately need Him to love us and to save us. 

I think often people think that praising the Lord is something we only do while at church singing in a worship but the truth is every single one of our days should be filled with praise. 

Here are ten reasons I think praise is so important in our lives:
  1. He is GREAT and deserves our praise
  2. It puts Him where He belongs in our lives- as the most important thing, as the joy and the delight of our lives
  3. It causes us to think about the millions of reasons we have to worship Him
  4. It gives us the right perspective and keeps our focus on what is truly important- HIM- instead of the craziness of our world
  5. It reminds us of the truth of His word
  6. It points us to the truth of His love for us
  7. It helps us focus on and learn about His character
  8. It reminds us that He is with us always- in the beauty and in the hard
  9. It reminds us of His faithfulness in the past (and present and future!)
  10. It points other to Him

You'll notice that many of the verses in the plan this month are in the book of Psalms 
and that is because that's what a psalm is- a praise! Did you ever notice that Psalm is the longest book of the Bible? It is and the fact that the longest book is a book devoted to praise tells us that it's vital that we spend lots of time in praise. 

Let's spend this month praising our Lord. 
My prayer is that these verses help you to focus on our great Lord and Savior and the many, many, many reasons we have to praise and worship Him!



FYI: I made the plan 31 days and plan to do that with
all topical plans in the future so that they can be done any month-
not just the month I write them for.
