Psalm 135:3 Praise Him, For He Is Good

Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise to his name for that is pleasant. Psalm 135:3

People are often lifted up in praise and honor for the good things that they have done. Usually these are people who have done something above and beyond the normal. They had given of themselves to an extreme level to help others out. Often to the point of putting themselves in harm’s way.

Some are almost revered as being someone extra special, such as Mother Theresa. Many of these types of people tend to have some type of Christian background, while there are some who do not believe in God at all. There are some who do great works in helping others out, while having no belief in God. Yet, all will get praise for doing good.

One who is good and does the perfect good all the time is God. He is good, not to just some people, but to every person. He is good to those who don’t even believe in Him.

Even when there are times of troubles in life, God is good. Many have chosen to walk away from God because of a situation that occurred in their life that they felt God should never have allowed. They feel that He is not being good to them.

You may be going through a time right now where you feel God is not being very good to you. You may be questioning how good He really is.

Take a moment and think about all that God has done for you that is good. He has given you some clothing to wear. He has given you access to the internet to be able to read this. He has given you breath to breathe. God has given you the ability to read. God has chosen you to be His child. Jesus has forgiven you of all your sins. You are a part of a family of believers that stretches around the world. The list of what God has done for you that is good goes on forever.

As you think about these good things God has done for you, give Him praise. Sing praise to Him and about Him. Let the world know what God has done for you. Let God know you know what He has done for you. Doing this is a pleasant thing and lifts your own spirit up.

I pray today that you will know what God has done for you; that you will sing praise to God all the time; that you will tell the world about Jesus; and that you will honor God with much praise.

  1. You start talking about how good God is and then suddenly you seem to take yourself an other god that the God of Jesus, because you write ‘Jesus has forgiven you of all your sins.’ as if you consider Jesus to be that god Who created everything and Who gives everything, instead of believing what Jesus says that God is greater than Jesus and that God is the One Who has sent Jesus and has given Jesus authority. A person calling himself Christian should believe the Words of God and the words of His only begotten son and not follow the false human doctrines, like the one of the Trinity.

      Thank you for reading.
      Yes I am saying that Jesus is God. Look at John 8:58 Jesus said before Abraham, I AM. “I AM” is the name of God in the Old Testament. The priests and Levites wanted to kill Him then because He was calling Himself God.
      Also look at John 1:1-14 Jesus is called the Word of God, God come in the flesh. In verse 10 it states that the world was created by Him. According to Genesis 1 God created the world. Either Jesus is God or the Bible is a lie.
      Also look at Philippians 2:5-6 Paul states that Jesus was God.
      Also Mark 2:5-7 Jesus told the man that his sins were forgiven. The teachers of the law were mad at Him because only God can forgive sins. Either Jesus is God or He is a liar in saying a person’s sins are forgiven.
      Only God is perfect and Jesus was perfect, without sin. He is God. He is not greater than God the Father, nor less than God the Father. He is God, equal to God. He is also a perfect man.
      Please read all of the Scripture to see that Jesus is God.
      May God pour out many blessings on you!

  2. We should sing praise to the Only One True God, the God of Israel, Who is the Unseen Eternal All-knowing God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Jesus and his disciples. Him we should give all honour and praise, whilst we also can be thankful that Jesus wanted to put his own will aside to do the Will of God and to give himself as a ransom for the sins of many.

      I agree we should sing praise to God. We also need to praise Jesus because He is God also.
      Matthew 2:11, Matthew 14:33, Matthew 28:9-10, Luke 24:52, Hebrews 1:6, and Revelation 22:3, shows that Jesus was worshipped and He accepted it.
      God the Father needs to be worshipped and so does Jesus the Son Of God.
      May God pour out many blessings on you.
