Every morning I use a psalm as a prayer leader in my prayer time. The Lord is faithful to reveal the truth through the psalm that I did not know and has me pray a prayer or multiple prayers for people, the nation, or even nations. I have found it to be a real joy.
This morning as I went to pray psalm 127, The Lord spoke to me to look at who the author of the psalm is. I learned it is Solomon that wrote this psalm and what that revealed to me is knowing the author of some thing that’s been created gives greater understanding into that which has been created. For what is created is an extension of the author.
When you know the author it adds substance to that which has been created. When we know the parents it adds substance to understanding the child. When we know God as creator, it adds substance to the creation called earth on which we live. When we know the songwriter it adds substance to the song that we are singing. The reason being Is because what we are seeing is only an extension of the person that created it. It’s one thing to enjoy the creation it’s a whole other to let the creation point you to the person that created it.
Psalm 127:1 (a psalm of Solomon) “Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.”
