Psalms 146-150 – Day 8

Psalm 147:1

Praise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise Him!

The Thought

Each of the five psalms that we are looking at this month begins with the expression Praise the Lord. There are many people who use that expression throughout their day giving God immediate credit for every good thing that happens. Often those believers give God praise for the bad things that happen too, because they believe that their Father God will give them the ability to cope with whatever situation they find themselves in. And He will!

Thousands of years ago, God promised the people of Israel that He would never leave them (Genesis 31:3 & Exodus 3:12), and He didn’t! Moses repeated this promise He will never leave you nor forsake you in his farewell speech to the Israelites (Deuteronomy 31:6 & 8). The Lord promised the same thing to Joshua as he took over the leadership from Moses (Joshua 1:5).

Towards the end of Jesus’s ministry, He told the disciples that Father God would not leave them as orphans but that the Spirit of Truth would come to them once He had left (John 14:15-17).

Those promises still hold today. God will never leave us. It may feel as though He has done when we go through difficulties, but sometimes those difficulties feel easier if we turn our focus on Him and sing His praise. He is still worthy of praise, and He has the answer to every problem we might face. Hallelujah!


Think today about what that expression Praise the Lord means for you personally. Do you feel it is a phrase meant just for church or Bible reading, or does it have a relevance in your daily life? Are you irritated by those you hear using it no matter whether their situation looks good or not so good? Read some of the chapters mentioned above and praise the Lord for life today.
