Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 150:1-6. Psalm 150 is a Psalm of praise to the LORD. The Psalmist calls out for us to praise the LORD in His sanctuary, and in the firmament of His power. Praise Him for His mighty acts. Praise Him for His exceptional greatness.
Praise Him with the beautiful music of the trumpet. Praise Him with the psaltery (a bag made from animal skin that held liquids, possibly a water bottle), and harp. Dance and praise him with the timbrel (tambourine. Praise Him with stringed instruments, organs, and loud cymbals (an instrument that made a tingling or clinking noise).
My favorite verse from this chapter is verse 6, which says, “Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” You may be surprised to find out how good it makes you feel to praise the LORD. God created the earth and everything in it to praise Him, including us. “Praise ye the LORD.”

Things to think about:

Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 150 where the Psalmist encourages us to sing praises to You. Help us to use every instrument we can and our voices to sing praises and make beautiful music to praise and worship Your holy name. We love You, LORD, and we praise You for who You are and for all You have done for us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
