Day 14: Psalms of Music

Psalm 150 by Robyn Sand Anderson

Today’s Reading
Psalms 66, 149, 150

Pastor Lisa’s Journal
Scripture
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! – Psalm 150:6

Observation
Psalm 150 is the ultimate psalm of worship and praise. I long for worship with this much freedom and joy. Look at all the examples:

  • Praise God within the church and out in the community (verse 1)
  • Praise God’s deed, God’s power, and for who God is. (verse 2)
  • Praise God with instruments (verses 3, 4, 5)
  • Praise God with song and dance (verse 4)
  • Praise God boldly and joyfully (verse 5)
  • All creatures and creation are called to praise the Lord. (verse 6)

Application
How can I be more joy-filled, creative and free in praising God?

Prayer
Joyous Lord, you delight in all you create. Fill us with your joy and hope. Unshackle every voice and foot and hand. Liberate every instrument and paint brush and potter’s wheel. Awaken and inspire the hearts and souls of your people. Free us to sing and dance and play and create in praise of your glorious ways, from this time on and forevermore. Amen.

  1. Good afternoon,

    I am interested in using one of the images from your blog for bulletin covers and a website image for a series on the attributes of God from the Psalms that will be starting soon.

    How do I proceed from here? I am interested in Psalm 150 by Robyn Sand Anderson.

    Thanks!

    Connie
