Praise as a Weapon: Psalm 149
Praise as a Weapon: Psalm 149By: Todd Hudnall
Psa. 149:1 Praise the LORD!
to the LORD a new song,
And His praise in the assembly of
Psa. 149:2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Psa. 149:3 Let them praise His name with the dance;
them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
Psa. 149:4 For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;
will beautify the humble with salvation.
Psa. 149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory;
them sing aloud on their beds.
Psa. 149:6 Let the high praises of
God be in their mouth,
a two-edged sword in their hand,
Psa. 149:7 To execute vengeance on the nations,
punishments on the peoples;
Psa. 149:8 To bind their kings with chains,
their nobles with fetters of iron;
Psa. 149:9 To execute on them the written judgment—
honor have all His saints.
God has given us
praise as a weapon against discouragement, gloom, despair and fear. Let’s use
this powerful weapon daily, turning our backs to our problems, disappointments
and fears to worship Him.
