The messages from Psalms are meant for people seeking meaning and fulfillment in their life. The ancient, powerful messages resonate today as much as they did thousands of years ago. Honesty, helping the poor, world peace, community, forgiveness, justice and more are all touched on in Psalms. The secret of happiness, wealth, and long life is embedded in Psalms. Its words are therapeutic and provide comfort in the most adverse of circumstances.
The Book of Psalms ends on a powerful note. In Psalm 150, the root word hallel (praise) is used 13 times:
Praise God. Praise God in His sanctuary; praise God in the firmament of His power. Praise Him for His mighty deeds; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness. Praise Him with the blast of the shofar; praise Him with the lyre and harp. Praise him with drum and dance; praise him with stringed instruments and flute. Praise him on the loud cymbals: praise him with clanging cymbals. Let every soul praise God. Praise God.
The world achieves perfection when every soul expresses gratitude to God for all He has done. This is the ultimate gratitude journal communicated by all kinds of musical instruments.
