Psalm 148 – The cosmic praise of God

In our lives we can sometimes feel abandoned by God… insignificant & unloved…& it’s at times like this, we are prone to drift from our faith… we turn our gaze inward…we push away from the things of God & his people… This post-exilic Psalm commands all of creation to praise the Lord. By displaying a cosmic view of the heavens, the earth and the deepest oceans, the Psalmist moves, our often inward gaze, to look upwards & outwards. The horn of our salvation has been revealed and all are commanded to praise him.
