Book 5: Psalms of Ascent and Praise

Most of us have at least a few favorite songs we sing along with on the radio. As the words from a favorite song flow from our lips, memories fill our mind and emotions are rekindled. Just as you might connect at a deep level with Amazing Grace or How Great Thou Art or Mighty to Save, so too the people of God felt a strong connection to Solomon’s words in Psalm 127. Solomon writes about four aspects of our lives where we are each called to trust God: building our nest, securing our community, seeking fruit in our work and leaving a legacy through our family. This Psalm calls the people of God to radically trust God for every aspect of their life.
