Read Psalm 148-150. These are all hymns of praise, calling on all of creation to praise its Creator.
Did you find treasure?
Treasure: Created to Praise
Let every created thing give praise to the Lord… (Psalm 148:15)
You created me to praise you,
so I have hope that you will give me a new song to sing
and many reasons to sing it.
Read Luke 24:36-53.
The risen Jesus gave his disciples many instructions and then returned to heaven. I wonder what emotions filled their minds as they waited for their next chapter. Fear? Excitement? Bewilderment? How did they choose to spend their time?
So they worshiped him and then returned to Jerusalem filled with great joy. And they spent all of their time in the Temple, praising God. (Luke 24:52-53 NLT)
Responding to Treasures
What have I learned on my journeys through Psalms this year? What have my treasures taught me?
I learned the importance of being reminded of simple truths.
I soaked in the comfort of God’s delight.
I remembered the value of praying God’s word.
I discovered the joy of chewing on bite-size portions of scripture.
I remembered that friendship works both ways: God delights in me, and I praise and worship him reverently.
