We made it to the end! Woohoo! The last five psalms are known as the “Final Hallel”. If you remember from my sermon “hallel” means “praise”, so these five last psalms are the final praise. In the last psalm, Psalm 150, the verb “praise” occurs thirteen times! So we end with praise and a lot of it!
We have been on a adventure. We have explored a range of human emotions. We have gone to dark places and come out the other end. We have hidden in fear and stood boldly before God. We have been wise and we have been fools. We have heaped ashes on ourselves and we have danced with joy! We have done it all on our adventure. And through it all we will praise the Lord because we can trust in the Lord, our Rock, Shelter, Hiding Place, Savior, Strong Tower, Deliver, Shepheard, Fortress…the list goes on and on! Praise God!
