SAA Notes

Psalm 24 was the psalm that they sang as a closing song at the morning temple worship. On Palm Sunday, the people had just come from singing this psalm, when Jesus rode in through the gate on a donkey! No wonder they sang ‘Hosanna’!

SJA Notes

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”

“The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory!”

Today we ready two uplifting psalms of great worth!

We have the Shepherd of our souls, the Lord God Almighty.

And we have the King of glory, the LORD of hosts!

We can dwell on and contemplate and take strength from Psalm 23 every day of our lives.

Our enduring hope is spoken clear,

“… And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

David clearly trusted in the hope of heaven.

And the anthem of Psalm 24, the drumbeats and stamping of feet – It is a mighty song of praising God.

“The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle!”

How good is God’s word!

Don’t let it go, grab hold and chew it over, wrestle with it.

* Father God,

Please write Your word on our hearts today.

Please show us a little more of You today.

May we know You better, follow You more closely, walk under Your will with more humility.

Amen.
