PRAISE THE LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary
Praise him in his mighty heavens,
Praise him for his acts of power,
Praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
Praise him with the harp and lyre,
Praise him with timbrel and dancing
Praise him with the strings and pipe,
Praise him with the clash of cymbals.
Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord (Psalm 150 NIV)
The book of Psalm is a book of poetry, it is filled with prayers, and songs, that express the full range of human emotions. The psalm represent personal journals of the writers’ relationship with God. The thoughts and feelings they express help their readers draw near to the Lord as well. Some of there psalms were used in public worship services.
“The genre of Psalms is Songs and Poetry of all kinds. It is written by multiple authors; David wrote 73, Asaph wrote 12, the sons of Korah wrote 9, Solomon wrote 3, Ethan, and Moses each wrote one (Ps. 90), and 51 of the Psalms are anonymous. They were written over the span of approximately 900 years (Beginning at the time of Moses 1440 B.C. and through the captivity in 586 B.C.).” From Biblehub.com. King David wrote these book while he was King over Israel.
Worship can and is a beautiful thing, when we sing Praise to our Lord Jesus Christ. When we come into worship rather it is on a Sunday morning or any day of the week, we just focus on God and God only. There is a song I learn years ago which is Turn your Eyes Upon Jesus. Listen to it below, and while doing it try not to think of anyone or anything in your life, sing it to the Risen Lord, overtime when we come to worship time that time will be precious for you and God alone.
Grace and peace my sweet friends.
