I want you to go get a Post-it note and write on it, “How do I expect God to respond to what I just read?”
Next, turn to Psalm 106 and take the sticky note and place it over verses 44-48 but do not read those verses yet.
Take note of verses 1-5 first. They essentially say, “Praise the LORD!” But verses 6-43 (and that’s a lot of text) paints a very dark and rebellious picture. First, feel the weightiness of 6-43. Think about how they describe you.
Once you’ve done that, look at the sticky note. How do you expect God to respond to what you just read? Now, remove the sticky note. I think you will now understand why this Psalm begins and ends with “Praise the LORD!”
