08 Aug Psalm 147:1-3
147 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant and praise is becoming. 2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers the outcasts of Israel. 3 He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.
It is good to praise the Lord. Praising Him fulfills us as it comes from the joy within us. When we come together as God’s people and express our praise to God, we experience a beauty we can find nowhere else. As children of God, we have the unique experience of having been renewed from our wanderings and our failures. Not only that, but we once were brokenhearted in our rebellion, but have come home to God and experienced His healing both spiritually and physically. Jesus was sent to this earth to heal the brokenhearted. (Luke 4: 18) Sing a song of praise to God right now, because it is good. Join regularly with God’s people in corporate worship. The Psalmist says doing that is pleasant and beautiful. Do you agree?
