Bless the Lord

Whenever I hear Matt Redman’s song, “10,000 Reasons” that begins, “Bless the Lord, Oh my soul,” my heart is immediately touched. It reminds me of a special moment in 2012 that I experienced at the Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York City.
That night I suddenly understood what it meant to bless God. I’d always thought it was impossible for me to bless God. That evening, however, I realized that worship and work done in the proper way is a blessing to my Heavenly Father.
Psalm 103:22 proclaims, “Bless the LORD, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the LORD, O my soul!”
We are a blessing to our Heavenly Father when we do our work in alignment with His wishes and His will.
