SAA Notes

The Psalter closes with three hallelujah psalms. Hallelujah is the first word in each. What attribute of God or of his character strikes you in these psalms today?

SJA Notes

It is GOOD for us to praise the Lord!

Hallelujah is the word! PRAISE THE LORD!

How wonderful are these three psalms, these songs and prayers of praise. They give us many examples of _how_ we can praise God, what praise means, and who should be praising God.

And it’s great to notice that creation itself praises God – That fire and hail, snow and mist and the stormy wind all fulfil God’s word (148 v8) – How good is that!

Jesus bears witness to this truth in Luke 19, where the disciples were rejoicing and … PRAISING JESUS AS GOD! The Pharisees called Jesus on it, and Jesus replied, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

Creation itself testifies to God! Creation praises the Lord! Creation sings HALLELUJAH!

And so, as God’s people, we are to do this.

Let’s be encouraged to praise God, to magnify His name.

Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
