We Belong To God
I like how this Psalm talks about how we belong to God – this is mentioned specifically in verse three:
3 Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Through Christ, by grace and faith alone, we can have a relationship with God, and as this Psalm and the few previous Psalms point out, this is cause for great joy and excitement in our hearts. For these reasons, we should praise God. Or, as it is simply put in verse one of this Psalm, we should “shout for joy!!!!!”
