Praise the Lord

Ps 148-150 Have you ever gotten so intensely involved in a book that you aren’t aware of time? Or as you read the last chapter, you wonder why the author chose that ending? From Psalm 1 to Psalm 150, the psalmist asked lots of questions but now draws to a close his thoughts or his conclusion. ¬†People are to praise God because He is the creator and sustainer of all. He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

Ps 148: Praise God for his revealed creation. Let all creation praise Him for his name alone is exalted; his majesty extends over the earth and sky.

 Ps 149: “Praise Jehovah in the assembly of the godly‚ĶFor the Lord takes delight in his people;” 

Ps 150: “Praise God in his sanctuary. Praise him when you view the sky; for his mighty acts, his surpassing greatness. Praise him with song and musical instruments. Let us all with one accord praise the Lord.”

Psalm 1 began with words of blessing for those who meditate on His words. Psalm 150 closes with words of praise. In Psalm 45:1 he wrote: “I have composed this special song for the King; my tongue is as skilled as the stylus of an experienced scribe.”

“Great and astounding are your deeds, Lord God, the All-Powerful!” [Rev 15:3]

One thought on “Conclusion…”

  • Psalms teaches us to meditate on Him and, as we do, we realize how amazing, powerful, merciful, and loving He is toward those who worship Him in truth.
