Sing praises to God, sing praises! Ps 47:6
David the Psalmist knew how to turn his heart and affections to God when he found himself socially isolated. Psalm headings tell us of some of the Psalms formed at key moments of his life.
Psalm 57 is a Miktam of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave. In the Psalm David takes refuge in God and cries out to him. He expresses trust and confidence that God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness. Verses 7-11 then declare…
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast! I will sing and make melody! Awake, my glory! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!Psalms 57:7-11 ESV
Elsewhere in the Psalms David tells of how he loves to praise God alongside others. Many of us also long to praise God again in midst of the congregation. Yet, like David, let us continue to pour out our hearts to God and sing and express praise, worship, trust and confidence in Him even when separated physically from the rest of God’s people.
