>This one is a little different We broke it up in our family devotion to reflect on this Psalm…

146:1 Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

3 Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.

5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God,
6 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps faith forever;
7 who executes justice for the oppressed,
who gives food to the hungry.

The Lord sets the prisoners free;
8 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
the Lord loves the righteous.
9 The Lord watches over the sojourners;
he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

10 The Lord will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!

Mike- We are too always give praise to God. Don’t trust in leaders they and their plans disappear when they die. We are to give praise to God until we die.

Aidyn- I kinda think the first part actually talks about creation and God helping people like the hungry, the earth didn’t just get shaken he made the it all. It is actually talking about how God made the heavens and earth too. He keeps faith forever which means he will never give up.

Karin- The prisoners and the blind give us hope, for those who feel imprisoned we can count on the lord to not leave us in that place. The bowed down and the righteous are connected sorrow and humility. He loves us and doesn’t leave us hurting. He takes care of the sojourner, fatherless, widow. and brings to ruin the wicked. The seeker who is always traveling in a world that is not as it should be and can be unfamiliar in it’s difficulty. We all can feel the loneliness of fatherless and widows, God is hope in that. God is there forever to all generations.
