This Psalm brings such freedom! Anytime I want to start to control things or start to worry about the outcome of situations, I can sing and clap and shout praises to God. I do these things not out of obligation or as a ritual. I do them as an outward expression of what my heart believes and is expressed in this passage. That he chose my heritage. That God is King of all the earth. That He reigns over nations and sits on His holy throne. And that the shields of the earth belong to God. It’s a great reminder that I am not God, so I should stop acting like it. By singing these praises, I am ultimately giving my circumstances, my need for control and other people’s responses over the one and only, King of Kings.
