All throughout Scripture we find instances of people who believed and trusted in God praising him.
He is praised and honored because of who he is and because of what he does.
One such instance is found in the Christmas story concerning the announcement to the shepherds that a savior had been born. It records that the angels who made this announcement praised God and said “Glory to God in the highest.”
Then later on it states that after the shepherds’ returned from seeing for themselves this child, that they were, “glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen”.
I believe our heavenly Father will get his praise one way or another because Jesus taught that if mankind keeps quiet in this area of praise the stones will cry out. I have often wondered if the birds and other animals are actually praising God in some of their sounds.
I just recently read where researchers have released a new recording of sounds that surround the earth known as “chorus.” Radio receivers are used to pick it up and it sounds like birds chirping.
Maybe these sounds, as well as sounds we may never be able to record in the Milky Way, are actually praising the creator of all things.
There are a lot of things we don’t know and a lot of things we can’t control. But one thing we can do is offer God praise for who he is and for all the things he has done, including sending us a savior, which is Christ the Lord.
