How did your day start today?
- I’ve got to get to the store today!
- I can’t wait till tomorrow!
- I’m going to dread tomorrow!
This psalm begins with the Hebrew word, Hallelu. You know, Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! But the psalmist isn’t saying this to others. He’s telling himself to praise the Lord! It’s a necessary reminder to himself, to his soul, to give praise to God.
As in Psalm 145 and other places, the psalmist is acting upon his will, not just his emotions or his intellect. I will praise the Lord!
