“I will extol Thee, my God, O King; and I will bless Thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless Thee; and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever.” Psalm 145:1-2 (KJV)
To “extol” is to lift high. The life of David was given to lift hing the name of the Lord his God. David is addressing Elohiym; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the fulness of the Godhead. You could say the Court of heaven.
Like David we are to lift high the name of the Lord our God. He is our God, our King, and so much more. It is not limited in duration; or the time of our extolling His name has no time limit. Like the Psalmist says, “I will bless Thy name for ever and ever”. He says this twice in these two verses.
How long are we to bless the name of the Lord? Everyday of our lives; and for ever – eternally; and it is to eternally never cease.
Begin blessing the Lord today by receiving God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and His death on the cross, His burial and bodily resurrection. It is God’s gift to all who will receive it.
