Read Psalm 149


Read Psalm 149

      Praise the Lord!
Sing a new song to the Lord;
praise him in the assembly of his faithful people!
2     Be glad, Israel, because of your Creator;
rejoice, people of Zion, because of your king!
3     Praise his name with dancing;
play drums and harps in praise of him.
4     The Lord takes pleasure in his people;
he honours the humble with victory.
5     Let God’s people rejoice in their triumph
and sing joyfully all night long.
6     Let them shout aloud as they praise God,
with their sharp swords in their hands
7           to defeat the nations
and to punish the peoples;
8           to bind their kings in chains,
their leaders in chains of iron;
9           to punish the nations as God has commanded.
This is the victory of God’s people.
Praise the Lord!

Think

"The LORD takes pleasure in his people; he honours the humble with victory." - 4

This Psalm was a celebration of military victory; verse 6 describes people dancing with swords in their hands.

As humble and weak as we may sometimes feel - it is good to know that God is with us.

Pray

God, you know what battles I am fighting; I trust you for help.
