Insights on Today's Reading
Psalm 134 - This could be the Psalm of the "Night Watch." There were those servants of the Lord who maintained God's house in the night hours. They undoubtedly prayed for Israel and they kept the fires burning especially to comfort those who may be up during the night themselves. Being on duty during the night can be both relaxing and challenging. No one is necessarily around you to keep you awake! You may feel lonely, but immediately you know God is with you because in another Psalm it speaks saying that God neither slumbers or sleep.
Psalm 146 - Our Help and our Hope are found in the Lord. The Lord is around when others pass away. God made the heavens and the earth, He gives justice, and He gives food to the hungry. He can open blind eyes and he watches over strangers and cares for the fatherless. He truly is our Help and we find much Hope in Him.
Psalm 147 - It is always good to sing songs of praise to our God. So many reasons to do so are given in this Psalm. He can build a city but He also takes care of its inhabitants, rich or poor. He knows the stars by name and gives each one a name. He will seek justice for the oppressed and He will show His care for His own people so the world may know what they are missing by not having God in their lives.
Psalm 148 - Praise goes to God throughout the heavens and praise also comes from those who dwell on the earth. He controls the universe and He controls His creation here on earth, too.
Psalm 149 - The people of Zion have reason to give God praise. He created them and He takes pleasure in them. He gives His people victory and allows them to carry out His judgments that God might be glorified.
Psalm 150 - This is a Psalm encouraging praise be given to God with dancing and with all kinds of musical instruments. God is worthy of this worship from His people for all that He has done for them.
