QT – Psalm 146

Vs. 2, “I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.”  PTL…The last five Psalms start with Praise the Lord (Hallelujah).  This is a call to praise the Lord and stop putting our focus on other things.  They say that praising God is evidence of the life we have in Christ.  Praising God also shows the faith that we have in him (vs. 3-4).  And lastly, praising God displays the hope that we have no matter the circumstances (vs. 5-7).

Regarding application…Trusting In People.  Vs. 3, “Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.”  Sometimes we have the tendency to put our trust in people of this world.  Think of all the praises and trust that people were putting in President Obama.  Even one day we will have the anti-Christ come and many people will put their trust in him.  Who are we trusting in?  As much as some people are there for us, they cannot save us…only Jesus can do that.  So let’s start this week putting in our trust in the Lord.  Let’s let Him give us the heart of Christ!
