Full Out Praise

Today's reading: Nehemiah 12:1-47

After letting us see the status of the priests and Levites, Nehemiah 12 turns to the dedication of the wall and its gates. It was a grand celebration for sure, with people coming from all the surrounding communities. There were two great choirs accompanied by trumpets and instruments. They came together and stood in the house of God and their praise was so loud and exuberant that people could hear the celebration miles away.

"And they offered great sacrifices that day and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and children also rejoiced. And the joy of Jerusalem was heard far away" (vs. 43).

What things are you thankful to God for today? How do you display your thankfulness and joy? When you praise God and rejoice over what He has done for you, what does it look like? In other words, describe what your praising looks like and sounds like to others. Tami
