Psalm 24

February 25, 2022

This Psalm has a rich history! It is quite possible David wrote this song as he returned the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. It would have been sung as a song of intentional worship of God for His work in David’s life and the life of the nation. It was sung in Herod’s temple. It was likely used at Jesus' triumphal entry on Palm Sunday.


The way it is designed is the leader would sing questions and the congregation would sing the response. It gives us perspective, both past, and present into the use of these verses. Today we notice how it declares the Lord as supreme, in all things, through all things, and above all things. God is our Designer and Creator of all things!


The attention of the reader is drawn from us to God. It clearly focuses on the Deity of God and our natural response to that reality. Worship is part of our life whether we are “going up to worship” as the early readers/singers would have or simply starting out our day to head off to work or school. 


Whatever you do today you can be a worshipper! Look at creation and consider the vast handiwork of the Lord. He is our Maker and He is very aware of your life even today! Perhaps you can think of a verse or phrase from this important chapter as you journey through your day today. If you do, you are very likely to be blessed by it.
