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.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, surely Your mercy is in all things. You are so merciful to take me in, when I am broken. Your mercy is displayed, each time that I sin but come back to You for forgiveness. In repentance, I can feel Your mercy, as You change my heart from within. You are oh so merciful to usher in the Spirit, that I might have Your protection. I would be so far gone if You were not there to show me grace. Your love and kindness tells me how merciful our God is. I do not deserve Your love but still it is on full display. You never stop loving me. You never stop showing me mercy and compassion. Even when I need You most, You are there for me. I once thought that You could never forgive me but now I know that You can never give me enough mercy. I was so wrong about You. You do love me and continue to show me mercy. I love You Jesus. Amen.
The last half of this chapter helps us remember what the Lord has done for us. Speaking of the Lord Jesus, “who remembered us in our low estate”.
Will you open your whole heart to God? Do so and you will be filled with the Spirit. This is how a true change occurs.
Psalm 1:1,2 (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Your love for the Lord and others will manifest your praise to God. When His commands are in your heart and you walk in them, the Lord is honored.
Daily Prayer:I praise You Lord. Yes God, I pray that You will be praised by the way I speak and live my life. May it not only be words but actions. I pray that Your light may shine down upon me that many people may come to know You. Use me to do Your will. It is an honor to serve You and to walk in Your ways. I pray that as I live a life for You, Jesus, that You will be praised. Lead me from temptation and into Your light. Direct my paths. Help me to have courage to speak out of the love that I have in my heart for You. May more people be encouraged and come unto You. You are my God. I love You and praise You. It is a blessing to have You in my life. You have poured out Your blessings upon me and for this, I bless You above all else. You are my joy. You are first love. May Your Name be ever praised in the morning, day and night. May this life be lived as a ransom of my great love for You. All my praise be to my Lord and King. Amen.
Psalm 135:1,2 (KJV)
1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the name of the Lord; praise him, O ye servants of the Lord.
2 Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.
Lift your hands high and worship the Lord. Sing out in joyous praises to Jesus, our Savior. Allow your love to come out.
Share the gospel with anyone that will listen. Allow the good news of Jesus Christ to penetrate the lives of the lost.
Jesus. He is my friend. He is my Savior. He is my God and who I long for. Take me home, into Your presence, my Lord.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that I may no longer disrespect You. I no longer wish to go against Your ways. I am sorry for disobeying Your laws. I know that You can see the wickedness in my life and that I can never hide things from You. Lord, will You cleanse me of all my sin? Change my heart, oh God. Transform my life to follow You. I may not have listened to You in the past, but my heart and mind are open now. Feed me with Your Spirit and counsel me in Your ways. Give me direction, oh Lord. I need Your presence in my life. I've been so lost without You. I know that You can turn my life around. You can make a way that miracles can take place. I trust in Your healing hand. You are my Savior and give me hope. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Proverbs 3:1-3 (KJV)
1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
How can somebody believe in their heart that they are saved, when they are acting out against God. Often people have other things that give them comfort and joy.
Submit your lives to God. Open your hearts to Him, like a child submits to their parents. Allow Him to do a work inside your lives.
Daily Prayer:Dear Lord, will you come into my life? My heart is open to receive You. I will not neglect the chance to follow You, any longer. I understand Your ways are to salvation. I trust in You, God. I do not wish to walk in darkness any longer. Take my hand and lead me from darkness and into Your light. I confess that I am a sinner and have need of Your mercy. Forgive me Lord. Have mercy upon my soul. Cleanse me from all wickedness. Cut down the bonds of addiction from my life. I do not wish to walk outside of your love any longer. I need You in my life. You are my Savior. I rejoice, for You have come to save me. As I run to You, Lord, please come and receive me now. My heart is Yours. I give You the glory. I give You all praise. I want more of You in my life and less of me. I love You. Amen.
To those that are ready now, to give thanks to God, join in with me and rejoice in our King. “Lift up your hands”, “and bless the Lord.”
Psalm 134 (KJV)
1 Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord.
2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.
3 The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
Those in the faith, come together in fellowship, one with another, for this is church. We are all the members of Christ.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, may all people in the faith come in unity and love for one another. May our desire to fellowship with others in the faith become a desire in our hearts. I pray that You spark this interest in each of us. May we not only desire to learn from You but also the brethren and sisters in Christ. You have given us all great gifts and it is a pleasure to share them with one another. Lord, I know that I could not have the boldness to share the gospel without You giving me this desire. You have opened my mouth and filled it with Your words. May there be people in my life to share Your love with. May Your light shine forth in my life and the lives that I touch. Lead me to people that are in need of Your love. Help me encourage them and love on them as You would. May we all, in the faith, come together often in fellowship and love. I love You Lord. Amen.
Psalm 133:1 (KJV)
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Those in the faith come together in fellowship, one with another, for this is church. We are all the members of Christ.
Psalm 132:3-5 (KJV)
3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
5 Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
Lift up your eyes to the Lord and give your life to Him. Confess your sins, that you may be forgiven. Let Him lift you up to walk in His ways.
Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, we know that we are lost without You. Our sins have convicted us of our unworthiness. We confess our sins before You now. Have mercy upon our souls. Help us to know no longer fall victim to temptation. Strengthen us and gives us courage to fight against sin. Cleanse our hearts that we might walk in Your righteousness. Cast out anything that is contrary to Your presence from our hearts and our minds. Fill us with Your love and peace. Help us to desire what is good over evil. I know that You can lead us. I trust in You, Jesus. Give us the strength to carry on. Incline our ears to Your will. We desire to walk in Your ways. You are our Savior and we look to You for salvation. Come and rescue us. Point us on the right path. Take our hands and lead us forth. Our hope is in Your promises. I love You. Amen.
Too many so-called Christians have died and gone to hell because they thought their own good works would save them.
Allow the Holy Spirit to come into your lives. Open your heart to God. Live unto His good works and not your own.
