Read Psalm 150
The book of Psalms finishes with this song of praise. Heaven and earth join in praise (v. 1). He is praised for his mighty deeds and excellent greatness. (v. 2)
Consider His greatness. He is all eternal, all powerful, all present, all knowing. He is holy. Consider the mighty deeds of God. He is creator of all things visible and invisible. He sustains all things. He delivered his people from the bondage of Egypt and parted the Red Sea. He sent manna to sustain His people. He led them to the promised land. He conquered armies. He has given and preserved for us His holy, inerrant, and inspired Word. And he sent His son Jesus, who took on human flesh. He healed the sick, calmed the storms, and gave sight to the blind. He offered himself as the sacrifice for the sin of the world. Consider how our awesome God, mighty in deeds and excellent in greatness, loves the likes of us. So yes, praise him! As we conclude this week praise Him for all has done, and continues to do for us, here in this world, and for eternity.
Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!
Praising with sounding symbols; praise him with loud clashing symbols!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord! (v. 3-6)
