Psalm 67:5 May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. 6 The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us. 7 May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.
And the Grammy goes to GOD!!!!!
So we hardly ever watch many of the award shows because too often we are not ups to speed on some of the “art” that is out now. However, we know that it is important to know what is out there because our kids are immersed in it at school and when they are not around us. However, last night our Son who desires to be an artist of some sort wanted to watch the Grammys. So we did and it was so pleasant to watch the Grammys tonight and see an artist that I really like, Chance the Rapper. One because he is super unique, Two because he is not at all shy to praise God in his life and his music. So when he received his award it was no surprise that he gave glory to God, but not in a way that we usually see people trivialize God’s presence in their lives (not that I attempting to judge), but as authentic as I’ve seen at a show like the Grammy’s (Glory be to God, I claim the victory in the Name of the Lord). So then when it was his turn to perform, he chose to praise God. Performing “How Great is Our God” and sprinkled in some of his own songs which were done with perfection.
I know that many of the crowd were expecting something different but what they got was Blessed. The word tells us that as the People Praise God, God blesses us. And it does not say that God only blesses some people, because God desires to bless all. After all He sent Jesus to save all of us and just because many choose not to receive Him, He continues to bless us all with His precious love. So even though some in the Grammy crowd did not know what transaction was occurring during Chance the Rapper’s performance they walk out of the LA Staples Center better than they came in.
For all of us that Praise the Lord as a daily part of our lives, be assured that we are mainly doing it because of the relationship we have with Him, it is also still critical for those who still have not accepted Christ. As we praise, God blesses…..
