Impartial Grace: Psalm 150

Praise Yah! Praise God in his sanctuary! Praise him in his heavens for his acts of power! Praise him for his mighty acts! Praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet! Praise him with harp and lyre! Praise him with tambourine and dancing! Praise him with stringed instruments and flute! Praise him with loud cymbals! Praise him with resounding cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise Yah! Praise Yah!

(Psalm 150, emphasis added)

This is a remarkable display of praise and worship. The Psalmist is leading a mighty song to praise God. He sits on His Throne; praise Him. He rules over all the universe; praise Him. He is mighty to be praised.

The Pulpit Commentary discusses these verses from this Psalm. Christians should not “need to be reminded of the duty of praise.” 1 Our daily walk should show praise for our Father. The things we say and the acts we commit should bring glory to our God. Everything we do and all things that happen to us are by His design and He is worthy of our thankfulness. “Let the entirety of animate creation praise Jehovah.” There is nothing on earth, under the earth, in the sea or under it that will not praise Him. His mercies are over all things. “The eyes of all wait upon him and He provides them all their needs.”

These verses affirm “The Blessed Hope.” God will hear the praises of all His creation. “Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.” No creature under the earth or under the sea will be exempt. All creation will praise Him. This is Impartial Grace.
