What Does Psalm 146:2 Mean?

I will praise the LORD while I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

Psalm 146:2(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

This beautiful psalm is a song of praise that rejoices in the unalterable character and eternal beauty of the Lord. It extols the greatness of His character and it rejoices over the glories and majesty of our Creator God, as verse by verse the psalmist reflects on the wonder of His name.

He meditates on the greatness of his God. He rejoices in the eternal faithfulness and gracious wisdom of the Lord, and he ponders over the majestic works of His hand. The thoughts and the meditations of the psalmist build into a crescendo of praise as he centres on the steadfastness of the Lord his God, Who is from everlasting to everlasting.

At the start of the psalm, as he joyfully meditates on the wonders of Lord his God, he cries out, "I will sing to the LORD as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath!"

The joy of the psalmist is contagious, for when we spend our days reflecting on the eternal faithfulness of the Lord and turn our hearts to meditate on the beauties of His name, we will also rejoice in His wonderful works, His grace and mercy, His wisdom and might, His faithfulness and love, as we will blend our voices with the heavenly choir, proclaiming praises to our Lord.

Let us start each day as the psalmist began, by praising our Lord. As long as we have breath in our lungs, let us sing praises to our God. Let us joyfully meditate on the wonders of creation which declare the glory of God. Like a sweet fragrance, may our praises rise to the Lord to Whom be glory and honour, forever and ever. 

"I will sing to the LORD as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath!"

My Prayer

Loving Heavenly Father, how wonderful are the works of Your hands and how majestic are Your ways. How amazing Your grace is toward me and how deep Your love is for those of us who are in Christ Jesus. Thank You that I am Your child and the work of Your hands. May I raise my heart and voice, day by day, to sing of Your love and faithfulness to me. In Christ Jesus, my Lord, AMEN.
