The psalmist sings today–of being the people of God. It is a song to remind them that no matter the circumstance, they are His people and will be God’s ambassadors and avengers. It must have been difficult during the times of exile and oppression to remember the beauty of being God’s chosen people. The psalmist reminds Israel that while vengeance is God’s, He will allow Israel the honor of representing Him in that return. What’s more, it remains His people’s responsibility to show the world the Father’s love and grace. They are the nation of priests–who will draw the world back to God.
We, through Christ, get to be a part of the celebration. We get to be a part of God’s chosen and spend eternity with Him. We also are the Lord’s ambassadors and through our lives, we get to introduce Him to others in our lives. We simply follow God daily and allow Him to transform us, through our daily walk, into the kids He called and saved. It is never easy, but it is always great to be a part of God’s family and to share Him with the world!
God Bless You
Praise the Lord.
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3 Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
4 For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
5 Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
6 May the praise of God be in their mouths
and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7 to inflict vengeance on the nations
and punishment on the peoples,
8 to bind their kings with fetters,
their nobles with shackles of iron,
9 to carry out the sentence written against them—
this is the glory of all his faithful people.
Praise the Lord
