Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn —
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.

Let the sea resound and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.
Let the rivers clap their hands,
let them sing before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples with equity.
Psalm 98:4-9
Can you imagine it? Listen… the sea is still resounding… the mountains singing… the river claps its hands.

God created the entire world to praise Him. Jesus understood this.

When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some of the Pharisees, in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
Luke 19:37-40
Nothing will stand in the way of God getting praise. When we refuse, creation steps in and praises Him.
When was the last time you praised Him?
Lord, fill me with a heart of praise for You.
