Those in Christ Jesus are continually thinking about their actions and how they can serve Christ. The Lord is in their minds often.
Psalm 118:28,29 (KJV)
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Psalm 118:22,23 (KJV)
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
23 This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
Psalm 118:4-6 (KJV)
4 Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
5 I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.
6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
Let it be my witness that God is almighty and willing to save us as sinners. He is all merciful and kind. “I called upon the Lord in distress” and “the Lord answered me.”
Psalm 9:9,10 (KJV)
9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
Please know that Jesus is so willing to help us, when we put forth effort. We must dine with Him, as sinners did when He was on earth.
Jesus is the Messiah and was sent by His Father. He was spoken of and prophesied for many generations until He finally came.
May you all come to Christ and allow Him to give you boldness. May the Lord, open your heart to talk to people, even when you are more often shy than not.
What will save us in this life is our faith in Jesus Christ. It is this faith that compels us to forsake what is evil and come unto Him for a change of heart.
Psalm 63:1-3 (KJV)
1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Look to God. Nothing can match His love, His kindness, His mercy, His grace, His forgiveness, His compassion and healing power.
Psalm 145:1-3 (KJV)
1 I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord , and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Psalm 119:103-105 (KJV)
103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
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.
