Praise the Lord From the Heavens!

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 148-150.
Everything above us praises the Lord. His angels, His hosts, the sun and the moon, all the stars, the highest heavens, and even the waters above the heavens praise their Maker (Psalm 148:2-4). This is why Psalm 148 begins,
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!
(Psalm 148:1)
Why should all of creation above us and why should everyone in heaven praise the Lord? The psalmist showed us why,
Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For He commanded and they were created.
He also established them forever and ever;
He made a decree which shall not pass away.
(Psalm 148:5, 6)
The Lord gave the command for all those things to be created and it happened. Therefore, they praise Him.
Do you praise Him? Do you know why you should praise Him? Praise Him for the same reason that everything in the heights praises Him.
