Let all that I am praise the Lord, with my whole heart, Psalm 103:1 Hello Friend,
If you take your Bible and turn to the book of Thanksgiving and Praise. of course... that would be the book of Psalms. The Hebrew word translated Psalms comes from the Hebrew word Hallelujah which means "praise the Lord." So... when somebody says, "Hallelujah"... what are they saying? They are saying, "Praise the Lord!" And by the way... this word hallelujah cuts across the language barrier. It translates the same in every language!
Well... that's what the book of Psalms is all about: Praising the Lord Jesus Christ! Do you know what that means to us? It means that if we are going to learn how to worship God in Spirit and in Truth... then we've got to invest some time in the book of Worship and Praise: the book of Psalms.
Think of the book of Psalms as God's introduction to Worship: 101! And most of us need to enroll! I don't believe there is a better time of the year to enroll than during the Thanksgiving Season.
Psalm 103 is a psalm of praise to God that begins deep within the soul! That's why I call it Soul Music! Now let me say that this kind of Soul Music is not for everybody! This kind of Soul Music has nothing to do with the color of your skin... it has everything to do with the condition of your soul. This kind of Soul Music comes from the saved soul! Now once you have a saved soul... you can sing this Soul Music of Thanksgiving every day! You might say, "But what about those times of disaster and difficulty? Can I make music then? Can I give thanks to God then?" Especially then! Paul says in 1 Thess. 5.18, "In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." It is Soul Music that gets you through those times of disaster and difficulty. So, let’s get down and sing together, “Hallelujah; what a Savior!” Praise the Lord, my soul is filled.
