Greetings! This is a beautiful Psalm full of passionate praise for God. I think I’ll read this before church sometimes to help get my mind focused on properly worshiping him. I am very self conscious and don’t like to sing, but I am going to try and focus more on him instead.
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
1 Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.
2 How awesome is the Lord Most High,
the great King over all the earth!
3 He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.
4 He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. Selah
5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.
8 God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
9 The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.
 The Holy Bible : New International Version. 1996, c1984. Grand Rapids: Zondervan.
Christians are also people of the God of Abraham. Abraham had faith in God, and it was credited to him as righteousness. We have faith in Jesus and because of that our sins are transferred to his account and his perfect righteousness is transferred to our account. That is another reason to give him our thanks and praise!
