Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6
God commands us to praise Him. He says that if we are living, if there is breath inside of us, we need to praise Him.
One of the words for praise in Hebrew is “Judah.” As we follow the tribe of Judah throughout the Bible, we see that where it goes, so goes praise.
Moses prophesied in Deuteronomy that the voice of Judah would be heard throughout the earth.
David was of the tribe of Judah and wrote most of the Psalms, which certainly have become worldwide praises for the Lord.
We find that Jesus often praised the Father and gave Him thanks. Jesus also came from the tribe of Judah.
We who are born-again also come from a “tribe of praise.” We are in the lineage of Jesus Christ; thus, we too are of the tribe of Judah and bring praise.
Do you have breath? Do you have life? Then praise Him today! Praise Him everywhere, not just at a worship service—for praise is a way of life! We need to let the earth hear our voices as we praise the Lord.
Lord, I declare that as long as I have breath in my body, I will praise You and give thanks to You because I come from the line of Judah, the line of Jesus, a tribe of praise.
