Psalm 145 The A – Z of Praise

The Christian life is to be a life of praise, glory and adoration and these things should characterise our lives from A to Z. Praise should characterise the years of our lives and every aspect of our lives. In looking at Psalm 145 we note that this is the last of David’s Psalms recorded in the Psalter and that it is also an acrostic Psalm meaning that each verse in the Psalm begins with a new letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This unfortunately is lost in the English translations, which cannot of course be helped. It is fitting that the last of David’s Psalms would be a Psalm of praise because it doesn’t matter how life is, for the Christian, life must be about glorifying God and enjoying him forever.
