Psalms and bookends

January 23rd, 2012

One of the things I have started to do recently is look at how some of the Bible books start and how they end. I try to find the spiritual “bookends”.

As I was thinking about the book of Psalms recently I found that Psalm 1 talks people being blessed if they meditate on God’s Word day and night. It says they are like trees planted by streams of water that produce fruit in season.

Fast forward 149 chapters to Psalm 150. This talks about praising God with dancing and all types of instruments. It finishes with “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD (v6).”

As I pondered this I realised that the more I read about and meditate on God and His ways, the more I want to praise Him with all of my life. It makes me want to dance, sing and make a joyful noise  that Psalm 100:1-5 talks about!

Finding the spiritual bookends of a Bible book can be a great devotional tool to keep you praising God.

God Bless,
