Cole Smith, Jeremiah Dioquino, and Brent Smith team up to teach through Psalms 148-150 – the final three Psalms of our “Summer in the Psalms” series.
Pete Jansen shares on the greatness and goodness of God and the blessing of praising Him.
David recognizes how good the Lord has been through all his ups and downs. He sees that it’s God who has established him and the nation. And it causes him to sing forth and declare the greatness of God.
In these two Psalms David is crying out to the Lord for help. David certainly wasn’t immune from the pressures of life, and neither are we. We take a look at how David handled these things and what we can learn from him.
As much as David was a likeable guy, not everyone was for him. He had his experience with enemies and difficulty. And as we see in these chapters, instead of fighting against his enemies, David takes it to the Lord. David knows the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted.
We are fearfully and wonderfully made David proclaims, this his soul knows very well. How about us? Do we comprehend the wonder of God through the life He’s given us? Are we aware of the work of God all around us? May this Psalm help you to see the wonder of God.
We see in Psalms 136 and 138 a call to praise God and a reminder why we should do so. Sandwiched between these Psalms is a Psalm detailing a time when the Jews had no song to sing, when they sat in captivity in Babylon. It’s a picture of the results of sin. It will rob us of a song to sing.
In these Psalms we look at the blessing that comes as we gather in unity and seek the Lord together.
