A Devo From Scot - Psalm 149

Dear Church,

Today, as your new week begins, I want to invite you to the end of the book of Psalms. I’d love you to read both Psalm 149 and 150. Both begin with Hallelujah, as do the three psalms before these two. Both celebrate the ample reasons to honor the LORD God with creative worship and praise. I hope these two ancient psalms do the same for you today.

"Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song...” Think about that opening line for a moment. If you were to “write” a worship song from your life over the last few months, what would it say? What would be the theme of your new song? Would it celebrate God’s faithfulness? His answer to prayer? Or are you still in the pain of waiting? Would it be about hope or confession of sin? Would it be a somber melody of repentance and godly sorrow? Or would it have a light air of joy?

Take a moment and consider your new song. You don’t have to sing it, of course. But I encourage you to write it, at least in your heart. Speak it to him. That’s what the psalmist is encouraging you to do. Of course Psalm 149 and 150 include references to dancing and instruments, which could inspire even greater creativity in your new song. I’m sure you know it, but God is worth it. And like a good Father, he always loves - in perfect truth - the gifts from His kids. “The LORD takes pleasure in His people.”

"Praise the LORD! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD."
He is worth it dear friend.
Join in the heavenly chorus today.

I love you church.

Scot
