Burning with Praise

Wednesday of the Third Week in Advent
Psalm 50

Nick reads the one-minute introduction.

As intense as is the brightness of the sun from its rising to its setting, so is the brilliance and the fullness of God’s presence in this psalm. Each verse is a ray of light to shine on you and shake you from routine acts of worship that fail to honor the God of light due to the dullness of the soul.
More than the sacrifices of animals, the Lord longs for us to express thanks and trust in God. Outer offerings are meaningless without expressions of inner surrender.

The strong admonitions from verse 16 confront you in those areas of sinfulness, which may yet lurk in the dark corners of the soul.

May the light of God be as a search light into those areas, revealing any vestige of dishonesty and hypocrisy that the Lord abhors. The divine fire seeks to burn away everything in you, until there is nothing but radiant expressions of thanksgiving, trust, and praise.


Wednesdays are dedicated to the Psalms.
