Psalm 147:1-11

Psalm 147:1 says it well: “How good it is to sing praises to our God.” We give thanks for those with gifts of music, the composers, singers, and instrumentalists; they are all part of the praise team. With their help, we can give expression to our amazing blessings, like when we sing, “Joy to the world, the Lord has come!”

It is amazing that an all-powerful God genuinely cares for the brokenhearted (v. 3). This is the reality of Immanuel, “God with us.” We even learn from our Scripture that a powerful military force doesn’t impress Him, but those who hope in His unfailing love delight Him.

You may be part of a group that sings praise to the Lord during the Christmas season. Sometimes you may be found enthusiastically singing words of praise, perhaps even standing with hands raised. Other times you will sing quietly, pondering the wonderful gift of Immanuel.

Discover for yourself, “How good it is to sing praises to our God.”
