31 May the glory of the Lord continue forever!
The Lord takes pleasure in all he has made!
32 The earth trembles at his glance;
the mountains smoke at his touch.
33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live.
I will praise my God to my last breath!
34 May all my thoughts be pleasing to him,
for I rejoice in the Lord.
35 Let all sinners vanish from the face of the earth;
let the wicked disappear forever.
Let all that I am praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord! NLT
Why does the world need the blessing of verse 31 to be true?

Skim back through this chapter. What is it that has caused the writer of this psalm to suddenly burst out in praise in verse 33?
What is it that has caused the writer of this psalm to desire such an intimate connected to the Lord in verse 34?
Which aspect of verse 35 does not fit with the rest of this psalm? Why would this have intentionally included as a final thought in the final verse?
::::: EQUIPPING CHALLENGE :::::
The writer ends by declaring praise to the Lord. “As for me”, he wrote, “I will praise the Lord!” From what you have learned in Psalm 104, how could you be equipped to make this declaration? What are you going to do about that?
