Bible Reading Challenge Week 34 Day 1

Our reading challenge for the day is Psalms 146-150. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

Psalm 146 - We are blessed when our trust is in the LORD. Why? Because he is eternal, good, wise, faithful, and powerful. When we sing his praises we rightly proclaim his character. There is our hope.

Psalm 147 - It is “pleasant and fitting” (v. 1, NIV) to sing God’s praises. He is the one who cares for those that cannot care for themselves. He provides the weather and all that is needed to sustain life all over the world. And he cares for us as well. Pleasant and fitting!

Psalm 148 - Everybody and everything is called to praise the LORD. He created and sustains it all. Most of all, see at the end of the psalm, he has raised up a horn of salvation.

Psalm 149 - We celebrate and delight in the LORD because he delights in us. Today it seems people want to celebrate for the sake of celebration. That is empty and meaningless. Having an object of praise is important. Here that is the LORD of all who delights in us, his people.

Psalm 150 - In every way we can imagine we are to praise the LORD. As long as we have breath we look to him and proclaim his wonders.
