As we read Psalm 47-49 today, may doing so move your hands as well as your heart, so as to help draw more of God’s light into your life.
Morning. Psalm 47. In your mind, let your hands be filled with a trumpet.
“God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!” (47.5-6)
Noon. Psalm 48. Run your hands over the surface of a strong tower.
“Walk about Zion, go around her, number her towers, consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels, that you may tell the next generation that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will guide us forever.” (48.12-14)
Night. Psalm 49. Hold up your hands as your consider the sheep!
“This is the path of those who have foolish confidence; yet after them people approve of their boasts. [Selah] Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol; death shall be their shepherd, and the upright shall rule over them in the morning. Their form shall be consumed in Sheol, with no place to dwell. But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me.” (49.13-15)
