Psalms 29-30

Psalms 29-30

Chapter 29: Worship the Lord

A Psalm of David.

                David counsels to worship the Lord in all his beauty and holiness.

“The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace” (Psalms 29:11)

Chapter 30: Thanks unto the Lord

A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.

                “…I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.” (Psalms 30:2)

We are reminded by David that if we ask God with a sincere heart (his will abiding) we can be healed and we can have rest. In verse 4 of Chapter 30 we read; “Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.” This to me is a reminder of why we sing at church and more specifically why we sing before we partake of the sacrament as a remembrance of Him and our covenant that we made with Him on the day of our baptism.
