'Let everything that breathes praise the LORD!' Psalm 150.6]
The Psalms [Songs] of 'Ascents'; Psalms 120-134. www.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
How is your week progressing? Getting a little 'sluggish', are you? Well, could it be time to get some 'joy' going in your early morning 'commute', or, your evening 'traffic jams'. Try FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS TO JUST - listen to; meditate upon; sing - Psalms. Then, when you have time, pull back into the 'Sanctuary' and 'sit in His Presence' and 'sing' the 'words' of some of these 'hymns'. Great for your soul!! And, Abba, Father rejoices, right back to you. Further, through the Psalms you have a great understand about just WHO our GOD REALLY IS - HIS ATTRIBUTES WILL JUST OVERWHELM YOU!! And then, you cannot help - but love Him! And, when you love Him, you will trust Him and Obey Him. That pleases Him, and blesses you!!
Be Blessed. The 'songs of ascent' are Psalms 120-134. I have included Psalms 135-150, also listed in the 'fifth' Book of Psalms. [Psalms 107-150]
The 'SONGS OF ASCENT'. SONGS/PSALMS OF DAVID include:
122, the joy of going to the House of the LORD;
124, the LORD is the defense of His people;
131, simple trust in the LORD;
133, blessed unity of the people of GOD;
138, the LORD'S goodness to the faithful;
139, GOD'S perfect knowledge of Man;
140, prayer for deliverance from evil men;
141, prayer for safekeeping from wickedness;
142, a plea for relief from persecutors;
143, an earnest appeal for guidance and deliverance;
144, a song to the LORD who preserves and prospers His people;
145, a song of GOD'S majesty and love.
All above are all attributed to David at different times and events of his life.
THE FOLLOWING SONGS/PSALMS are not specifically attributed to any one person, but may have been compiled by Asaph and others:
120, pleas for the relief from bitter foes;
121, GOD is the help of those who seek Him;
123, prayer for the relief from Contempt;
125, the LORD is the strength of His people;
126, a joyful return to Zion;
128, the blessings of those who fear the LORD ['fear' or 'reverence']
129, song of victory over Zion's enemies, [Zion or Jerusalem];
130, waiting for the redemption of the LORD;
132, the Eternal Dwelling of GOD is Zion;
134, praising the LORD in His House at night;
135, praise to God in creation and redemption;
136, thanksgiving to God for His enduring mercy;
137, longing for Zion in a foreign land;
146, the happiness of those whose help is the LORD;
147, praise to God for His word and providence;
148, praise to the LORD for creation;
149, praise to God for His salvation and Judgment;
150, let all things praise the LORD.
Psalm 127, laboring and prospering with the LORD. is attributed to Solomon, King David' son and heir to his throne upon his death.
Three times each year the Jewish pilgrims of old would 'ascend' the 'hill' to Jerusalem for Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles to worship the LORD. 'Going up to Jerusalem', or 'Ascents', it is believed that these Psalms or 'hymns' were on the travelers lips, in 'joy' at the prospect of - 'worshiping JEHOVAH'. It behooves us not to let the birds out-praise US.
Go ahead. Study and 'sing' those 'hymns'. Act them out, for better 'worship'. When you 'worship' the LORD with your whole 'self', in His Presence, for you, there is 'fullness of His Joy'!
Go ahead. try it. Are you down in the 'dumps'? Sing Praise to Him.
Are you wondering what you should do about a matter on your heart? Just start to praise Him, and before you know it, your spirit will be lifted and, you will hear a 'still quiet voice' saying to you, 'this is the answer'.
Go ahead. This is all the reason for - SANCTUARY - pulling aside to 'be in His Presence'. Enjoy this 'privilege' made available to you - BY HIS AWESOME UNMERITED FAVOR, STOOPING DOWN TO HIS CREATURES. [THAT, MY FRIEND IS - GRACE!]
I shall begin a multiple post series in this 'room' around March 15, 2018 - The Significance of 'the Cross'.
I hope you will be blessed through the posts.
Continued Blessings [Favor] from Abba, Father, by and through Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
