Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens; praise Him in the heights. Praise ye Him, all Hi angels; praise ye Him, all His hosts. Praise ye Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all ye stars of light.
The psalmist is encouraging all to offer praises to the Lord God as He is worthy of all praise, honor and glory. If all of nature, His angels and the heavenly host can offer praises to God why not you and I. Verse 5 answers the implied question of why praise God by simply stating that God commanded and everything was created; therefore, this makes Him praise worthy as He is the one true God.
There is no praise like offering heart-felt praises to God as our praises are expressions of expressed gratitude of thanks for His love, grace, mercy and faithfulness to His promises. These questions come to mind, How do you praise God? Do you acknowledge God as your strength, refuge, and horn of your salvation and high tower? Do you praise God for His goodness and compassion? Do you offer God praises of thanksgiving? Will you say like David, "I will praise the name of God with a song; and will magnify Him with thanksgiving" (Psalm 69:30). However, you praise God; praise Him in sincerity and with your mind, body and soul. Just praise Him.
Whenever sincere praises go up to God, He is pleased and blessing flow like a river.
