Archives For Psalm

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes to us from the group All Sons & Daughters and is entitled “Great Are You Lord”.

The Bible tells us:

Jeremiah 10:6
There is none like you, O Lord;
you are great, and your name is great in might.
Psalm 104:1
Bless the Lord, O my soul! Lord my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
As we begin preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday, may we always remember that every breath we are given is a gift from God and we should those breathes to praise & worship Him.
I hope you are encouraged today through this song and I hope that you take the time to worship our GREAT GOD today!

 

It has been a little over a month since I posted a Worship Wednesday song, and for that I am sorry. I was off for several weeks and getting ready for that was just crazy.

So, here we go!

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from Keith & Kristin Getty (modern-day hymn writers) entitled “The Lord Is My Salvation”. In the book of Psalm we read:

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Psalm 62:1-2

We must understand that without the grace of God, we are nothing more than sinful, depraved sinner destined for an eternity in hell.

BUT GOD! (I love these two words!!!!!!)

This song starts out with these words:

The grace of God has reached for me. And pulled me from the raging sea, and I am safe on this solid ground – The Lord is my salvation!

The song builds to the tag with the words:

Glory be to God the Father, glory be to God the Son, glory be to God the Spirit, the Lord is my salvation!

I hope you find this song encouraging today and it causes us to understand a little more clearly that without HIM we are nothing! He is our God, our Sustainer, our Rock, our Redeemer, our Savior, our Provider, our Healer – and HE is our SALVATION!

I am sure that we have all heard these verses (even if you aren’t a follower of Jesus) at some point in our lives. Psalm 23 says,

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell[f] in the house of the Lord forever.

Today’s Worship Wednesday song is “You Are My Shepherd” by Tricia Brock. It is a beautiful reminder of the words from Psalm 100:3,

Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

I hope you enjoy “You Are My Shepherd”!

 

How are you doing on your foundation verses memorization? Hiding these words in our heart will help us in times of temptation or when we need an answer and don’t have our Bibles with us.

Today’s foundation verse comes from the book of Psalm – Psalm 1:6:

Righteous“For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish”

The book of Psalms begins with a stark contracts of pictures. One side we see the righteous man and the other we see the wicked. The Psalmist continues by painting a picture of a tree that is firmly “planted by streams of water”. The reason for this tree being so firmly planted is because “his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night”.

The Psalmist quickly does a 180 and shows us the other side. Verse 4 says,

The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

While the first half of this chapter focuses on the godly person, the second half focuses on the ungodly.

I would ask you today to look through God’s eyes at both of these people. The ungodly seem to be “have it all”, but from God’s stand point they are destined for judgement.

Don’t miss this: Warren Weirsbe says this about the word “know”:

The verb “knows” in verse 6 doesn’t mean that God is aware of them intellectually and has the godly on his mind. Rather, it means that God has chosen them and providentially watched over them and brought them finally to His glory. The word “know” is used, as in Amos 3:2, to mean “to choose, to enter into covenant relationship with, to be personally acquainted with”.

If you are a child of God know this, you are blessed! And with that blessing we need to be a blessing to others, especially to those who do not know Christ as their Savior.

Which direction are you going in today?
