Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord. The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion. (KJV)
This is the last psalm of the fifteen Song of Ascents psalms
This is the last of the Songs of Ascents psalms. Sometimes we read these words the short Psalms quickly and then we move on to the next chapter. However, as I reflect on this being the last of the Ascent Psalms I see myself in the future in the presence of God in heaven. It is a simple picture of all the servants of God standing at the end of the day in the house of the Lord. In His presence, we can now truly praise the Lord. In Revelation 3:4 John writes “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” As a true believer in Christ this should be the desire of are heart. As we labor on this earth is it for the treasures of this earth are for the longer to be a servant upon the Lord?
Now ends the Songs of the Ascents. As we go about our journey on this earth I hope that these Psalms keeps our eyes upon Jesus the author and finisher of our salvation.
