Psalms 149-150
February 26, 2022

Psalms 149 
Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, And His praise in the assembly of saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise His name with the dance; Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp. 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. 5 Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, 7 To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples; 8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute on them the written judgment— This honor have all His saints.

The Power of Worship
This Includes: Thanksgiving, Praise, And Worship

Fan: Spectator – An Event I Attend
FAN: Contributors – A Lifestyle I Live

Not An Event You Attend
It’s a Lifestyle You Live

Jesus Has Many Fans
But Not Many Worshipers

John 4:23
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

Worship Is Your

Acts 16:23-25
23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.

Their Worship Was Their

CRAB Version
Worship is the Welcome and Recognizing God
Who He Is, What He Has Done, What He Will Do

Worship: Fixes Your Focus

Psalms 100:4
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Praise means “to commend, to applaud or magnify.”

Praise Conditions The Atmosphere For His Power

Psalms 150
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
2 Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! 4 Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! 5 Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!

What Are You Praising (Magnifying)?

Worship: Connects You To Your Destiny

Acts 13:2
2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.

It’s Your Heart, Not Your head

Worship: Destroys The Atmosphere of The Enemy

2 Chronicles 20
Jehoshaphat Army

2 Chronicles 20:26
26 On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Berakah (BLESSING), where they praised the Lord. This is why it is called the Valley of Berakah (BLESSING) to this day.

Worship Prepared The Valley For Gods Power

Worship Is Your “Welcome”
It Focuses You
It Connects You
It Defeats Your Adversary
