Hallelujah



August 31

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 145 – 147

Verse of the Day: Psalm 147:1 – “Praise ye Jehovah; For it is good to sing praises unto our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is comely.”

The opening words of this song are the Hebrew expression – Hallelujah.

This song has threefold structure that offers commands to praise the Lord. The first section (verses 1 – 6)commands us to praise Him for His restorative mercies. In verses 7 – 11, we find a command to praise Him because of the joy that He finds in His people. The final section (verses 12 – 20) extolls us to praise the Lord because of His Word. And the final phrase (verse 20) says this great fiat of praise – “Praise the Lord!”

Today, take some time out of your busy schedule and seek ways that you can offer praise to God for the manifold blessings He has provided.

Prayer: Today Lord, help me to see You in every wonder that is around me. Help me to know Your Love, grace, and mercy. Amen.
