Oak Hill Advent Devotional

Join us as we begin a journey toward Christmas together. Each day during this season of Advent, we’ll be posting a scripture text, a reflection written by one of our own community, and a quick prayer. You are invited to follow along.

Nov. 29                           Psalm 150                                    Deb Wiethop
I chuckled after I read Psalm 150. I decided to take a leap of faith and pick a verse without trying to find one easy for me to write about. I hoped I would find one that would be a message to me, to make me think about something more deeply.
And I did…a psalm exhorting me to praise the lord with trumpets, harps, lyres, tambourines, dancing, strings, flutes and cymbals! 
I routinely confess my sins, pray for myself and others, and give thanks for daily blessings. But I could do much, much better with praise. In fact, there should be dancing!
We should praise God for what He has done, for giving us this beautiful world we live in, but most of all, for His Son, Jesus Christ, who gave his very life to provide the way of redemption for us  –  to empower god’s great plan of salvation so we might be saved.
We only find our true selves when we give glory to the true and living God – the one who has revealed the fullness of his glory in his Son, Jesus Christ.

Today and every day, Lord, I will praise you for your power, your greatness and your great love for us.
Verse 6: “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” Amen.
