This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.
Psalms 147 begins with: “Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.” In these times that can be so confusing, infuriating and bereaving – praise the Lord. I do not mean that as an empty gesture of hoping for things to be different. Praise Him for He is worthy, 3“He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.” Worship helps to restore in us that which is broken, that which was lost. Praising Him literally works inside us and through us and best of all it glorifies Him!!
Praising and singing to the Lord restores the peace to our own soul that we desperately crave. 7 “Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving make melody to our God on the lyre.” My boys asked last night “Daddy, can we do some guitar tonight?” By that they weren’t asking for musical excellence (otherwise they would have asked for Dave Dunnigan or Uncle David) but they were asking for worship, what dad could say no to that!!!
I know that times are still rough and unsettling, but I have a prescription for that… Psalm 147 ends with “Praise the Lord.” Beloved, let us do it together!
