Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 47 – 49
Verse of the Day: Psalm 47:1 – “Oh clap your hands, all ye peoples; Shout unto God with the voice of triumph.”
The Psalms contain many genres (a particular type of writing, painting, etc.). This beautiful and uplifting song is a hymn of praise to God. They highlight the character and deeds of God. We can see His goodness, majesty, and virtues.
I can imagine the people singing this with loud and enthusiastic voices - the people being totally enthralled with their God. When is the last time that you sang a song of praise to God – totally abandoned in awe, rapture, and enveloped in His Beauty and Glory. Too long? Try it today – don’t worry if someone hears you – maybe they will be encouraged to bless and praise God also.
Prayer: Majesty enthroned, may I in full abandon bless Your Holy Name. May I be so covered by Your Love and forgiveness that nothing else matters but to sound Your Praise. Amen and Amen!
