Stepping Up: Week 6 - Day 5

Day 5 - The Lord Bless You

Psalm 134
1 Praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD
who minister by night in the house of the LORD.
2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary
and praise the LORD.
3 May the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth,
bless you from Zion.

Everytime you praise God you are doing what He created you to do.  The lesson states "that we depart times of blessing God with blessings from God."

There are many moments of blessing or praising God through the Psalms of Ascent.  The pilgramage to Jerusalem was all about praising God. Now in this final Psalm of Ascent we see the Benediction, the final words of praise the pilgrams heard and the final words were "May the Lord bless you." It is a final encouragement and a reminder that when we praise God we will be blessed.
