The Bible makes it clear how we can know how to live and act for God. He teaches us to “take fast hold of instruction” and “let her not go” but keep it.
Praise God. After a year of studying and writing on Psalms, I just finished the last devotional message today with Psalm 150. It is has been so delightful to lift up the Lord in praise. I have learned so much about worshiping God. How our God delights in our worship. He loves it when we call upon His Name. My devotion to Him has grown so much. I cannot help but tell people about my love for the Lord. I am so grateful. Below is a link to the messages I've written in Psalms. Some of these messages even go back years, before I decided to focus only on Psalms. God bless you all.
Psalm 150:1,2 (KJV)
1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
In your prayers and worship, acknowledge that the Lord is all powerful. He surely is mighty and can do all things for our lives.
Psalm 149:4-6 (KJV)
4 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
We learn from Psalms that praise is the way of a Christian believer. We no longer sit with our beliefs and do nothing.
Many false teachings can come into a church, when new “so-called” revelation begins to override what the Bible teaches.
Psalm 148:11-13 (KJV)
11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
We would not be alive if God had not created us and given us life. Every day that we live, we ought to thank the Lord.
Psalm 147:1-3 (KJV)
1 Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
2 The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Because the Lord knows us and loves us so much, He also has prepared a way for us to find true happiness. Those that discover the Lord, are healed from all their sins.
Psalm 146:1,2 (KJV)
1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul.
2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
The Lord is the giver of all things good. His love is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. He has offered me and you His living water, that we may not thirst.
Psalm 145:8-10 (KJV)
8 The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
9 The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.
I know that You are Lord and “good to all.” Your “tender mercies are over all” thy works. Your ways speak loudly of Your compassion for us all.
Psalm 144:1,2 (KJV)
1 Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.
With the Lord on our side, we become valiant fighters for His kingdom. We understand that the Lord knows us well and is able to see through our weaknesses and give us strengths.
Psalm 143:7,8 (KJV)
7 Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Pray this hour and cry out to God. Stretch forth your hands to heaven and say, “my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land.”
Psalm 142:5,6 (KJV)
5 I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
I am with David, in that the Lord is my refuge also. He is my strength. When I am in trouble, I can always come to God and find peace.
Psalm 141:1,2 (KJV)
1 Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
As I prayed to God, my flesh kept telling me that I was not worthy. How could God forgive someone such as I? I would tell myself.
Psalm 140:4,5 (KJV)
4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.
Those that love the world over the things of God are so lost. Just saying we believe in Christ is not enough.
Psalm 139:23,24 (KJV)
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
After our hearts are cleansed and washed clean, it is not a time to back down. This prayer that you made was a great experience and is the first steps to being led by Christ.
Psalm 138:1,2 (KJV)
1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Psalm 137:1,2 (KJV)
1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
What happened next to David was amazing. After they were caught up with God and remembered Zion, they hung their harps on a willow tree.
Psalm 136:1-3 (KJV)
1 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.
3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.
