God is praised, and He is worthy!
David’s psalms end and we read some by Asaph.
King David has similarities to the Apostle Peter.
A day of praise and worship, acknowledging God’s grace and power and majesty.
One of the main themes of today’s psalms is that God is our deliverer. If God is for us, who can be against us?
A potpourri of psalms today, including a guest psalmist…Asaph.
Our Psalm reading today runs the gamut; from the despair of feeling as if God has abandoned the psalmist, to praising Him with enthusiasm, to warning unbelievers about what awaits them, to the foolishness of relying on riches.
We find that even David, a man of great faith (and failures), had times where he felt separated from God…as if God didn’t hear his cries for help.
However, feelings are not reality.
David writes that God did hear him and rescue him. That’s a good lesson to remember when we are feeling doubts or separation.
Psalms ends with a crescendo of praise, and Paul greets the church at Thessalonica warmly.
