When we declare our praises to God it impacts our own heart AND acts as a testimony to the world around us. Phil Wickham’s song “Great Things” echoes another song in the Bible. It’s a song that is part of a longer “playlist.”
Let’s discover one of the psalms on the “Song of Ascents” playlist together!
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – our Bible Interaction Tool Exercises this week are:

This Week’s Challenge
Read and meditate on Psalm 126 for yourself. Use the BITEs of repetition, listening to an audio version, and reading in a variety of translations to aid you in letting this psalm really sink in. You may even choose to expand your study time into the entire Song of Ascents “playlist.” And by all means, sing for joy! For He has done great things, and we are glad!
