From the time I was a little girl, I spent every summer vacation at the beach; it is my happy place.
I love the visual in Psalm 98:7; Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause, with everything living on earth joining in.
I can picture the ocean’s creatures applauding, eventually joined by all the earth. If you read the entire psalm (I suggest The Message version for this one), the psalmist describes a full-out concert, complete with instruments, choirs, crashing waves, and shouts of joy! If the earth and ocean can praise God so intentionally, how much more should we be expressing our gratitude and excitement for His awesome provision?
Take a few moments today and remind yourself of God’s goodness, His answers to your prayers, and His protection. Say the things out loud, write them on a notecard, or text them to a friend. Be deliberate in your praise!
