Psalm 146 Summary
In Psalm 146:1-2, the psalmist will sing praises to God for as long as he lives.
In Psalm 146:3-4, don’t put your trust in mortal men who will die one day eventually. When a person die, his spirit will either go to heaven or hell depending on whether you are faithful or not faithful to God while on earth. If you are faithful to God while on earth, you will go to heaven. If you are not faithful to God while on earth, you will go to hell.
In Psalm 146:5-9, blessed are those who make God their refuge. God is the creator of heaven and earth. He is faithful and keeps his promises forever. He watches over the oppressed and hungry people. He is the one who give sight to the blind people. He exalts people who are humble. He watches over the foreigners, fatherless, and widow. He frustrates the ways of the wicked.
In Psalm 146:10, God reigns in all generations forever.
Psalm 146 Bible Study
1. Trust God rather than men
We often look to men or other places for help instead of God. When you have problem, you should surrender it to God and keep on praying about it until he answer your prayer. In Proverbs 3:5-6, trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. In Romans 15:13, now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
