Today’s Thought: Book 19 Psalms…

Book 19 Psalms

Whenever God’s people gather, whether in grief or celebration, they sing. The style of the music changes, but singing remains a deeply-rooted part of our heritage. From the spontaneous choir at the Red Sea in exodus 15 to the professional choirs David assembled among the Levites, songs run through the Old Testament like ;musical ribbons. And in the middle of it all—at the very heart of the Bible– is the book of Psalms, the hymnbook of the people of God.

Psalms, the Bible’s longest book, comprises of five separate collections: Book 1 is chapters 1 through 41; Book 2 is chapters 42 through 72; Book 3 is chapters 73 through 89; Book 4 is 90 through 106; and Book 5 is chapters 107 through 150. Each of these collections ends with an outburst of praise—an Amen or a Hallelujah.

Often when we cannot find words to express our fears, joys, longings, or sorrows. We find them in the pages of this book, as Psalm 100 exhorts us:

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the LORD, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His c08urts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations. “


The book o Psalms—Israel’s hymnbook—teaches us to continua-ll praise God for his greatness, goodness, and glory.


Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; come before his presence with singing.” Psalm 100:1-2


Worship! Sing! Praise!


In all things let my words and thoughts honor You Lord. May my life be a living praise to Your goodness!
