This great and popular Psalm tells us where to praise God (v.1). God should be praised in His sanctuary – the Christian temples, chapels and all Christian meeting places. A lot of space is given for praise to God. ‘The mighty heavens’ refers to the entire universe. God’s people are free to praise Him wherever they are. Remember, your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). Now read Psalm 149:3 and then Psalm 150:3-5.
The Lord’s name should be praised with dancing, with tambourine and lyre, lute and harp, strings (guitars, violins, ukulele, etc) and pipe, cymbals, various drums. Find out how these instruments feature in today’s Gospel and Church music, hymns and songs. Are there some local musical instruments you need to incorporate into your worship to make it more meaningful? Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. That includes you.
• Sing: Let all the earth in every corner sing, …Jesus Christ be praised!
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Fill my heart with praise, O Lord!
• Thank God for Jesus who by His death on the cross, took away our curse and granted us access into the blessings of Abraham.
