171 Let my lips utter praise, For You teach me Your statutes.
172 Let my tongue sing of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.
173 Let Your hand be ready to help me, For I have chosen Your precepts.
174 I long for Your salvation, O Lord, And Your law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live that it may praise You, And let Your ordinances help me.
Reflection. Did you notice why the psalmist praises God. 'Let me praise you...for you have been teaching me.' The psalmist has learned of God's statutes, God's commands, God's precepts, God's law and ordinances. All this draws forth praise.
What about us this Lord's Day. What have we been shown of God this week that draws us to Praise? Let's long for a deeper understanding of God's salvation in Jesus to grow in our hearts and to be on our tongues.
