A personal reflection on Psalm 150
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Are you still breathing? If Yes, then praise the Lord!
“Prayer should be like breathing, natural to do anywhere you are.” –Joyce Meyer
I grew up believing that Sundays are the only days that I can praise God, but things changed when I learned and started to worship God inside a jeepney, in the bathroom, while riding in a tricycle and even while walking. I don’t have to limit myself in a still and quite place just to worship Him, for God is limitless; He is every where. He can’t be boxed in one place.
I can worship Him everywhere and anytime. I can confess my sins directly to Him, I can ask for my petitions with boldness and confidence. I can ask all my desires to God the way I ask from my mom.
Praising God does not really means raising hands, singing, dancing, shouting, etc. If that is so then I can’t worship Him in public places for the passengers may think that I’m insane, but in everything that we do (even the food that we eat) is an act of worship to the Lord.
I’m no good in singing, and I can’t play any musical instruments, but I am a writer so I write my praises to Him. I don’t have a regular or stable job and my savings aren’t big yet, but I give to God as an act of worship to Him. Our gifts to God are pleasant aroma to the Lord.
What do we have right now that has not been given by God? What can we do that was not enabled by God? I believe, there is none, so it is just rightful that we give everything and do anything for God.
Here is a song from Hillsong entitled With Everything; this has been a personal song of worship of me to God. Let me write down here some of my favorite lines…
We will shout for your glory.
Our hearts will cry
Be lifted high,
Above all names.
For You our King,
We will shout forth your praise.

My personal prayer to God is this, “May my thoughts and my acts be an act of praise to you Lord, and may every breath that I have is an act of worship to You. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.”
