Yes, and Amen! This is our last psalm of worship and teaching. We have learned how much God loves us and we have deepened our love and understanding for our Creator! We have learned that we can praise God no matter what is happening around us in this world. We have been taught that everything God created responds with praise back to him. How great is our God! Praise God with all that is in us, for that is right, good, pleasing to God and lifts us up a little closer to where He is! The more we praise Him, the more we want to praise Him. Hallelujah, God is God!
THINK ABOUT IT…
To those of you who read this blog consistently, How has your study of Psalms helped you to worship and serve the Lord more joyfully and thoughtfully?
Worship and Wisdom, Psalms and Proverbs
Psalm 150, The Message
Praise God in his holy house of worship,
praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power,
praise him for his magnificent greatness;
Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise him with castanets and dance,
praise him with banjo and flute;
Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
praise him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!
TRUTH: God loves the praise of His people. Let us show our love for Him in our praise to Him. To God be the glory for all that He has done! “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 So, we praise the One who loved us first and loves us best.
“Praise the Lord! He is good. God’s love never fails.
Praise the God of all gods. God’s love never fails.
Praise the Lord of lords. God’s love never fails.” Psalm 136:1-3
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
WISDOM: “In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.” Trust God. Praise God!
Abba, Father in Heaven!
