Psalm 101-104

“I will sing of your love and justice; to you, LORD, I will sing praise. I will be careful to lead a blameless life— when will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.

My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; the one whose walk is blameless will minister to me.” – Psalm‬ ‭101:1-2, 6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Hear my prayer, LORD; let my cry for help come to you. Do not hide your face from me when I am in distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly.
Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD: “The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.” So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD.
But you remain the same, and your years will never end.” – Psalm‬ ‭102:1-2, 18-22, 27‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children— with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will. Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, my soul.” – Psalm‬ ‭103:1-5, 8-22‬ ‭NIV

“Praise the LORD, my soul. LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.
The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.
All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.
When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.
I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD.” – Psalm‬ ‭104:1, 3-5, 9, 21, 27-28, 30, 33-34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Prayer for Today

Lord You are truly everlasting!!! Amazing that the beasts of the field cry out for You to satisfy their hunger. So much more should we. You are the one who takes care of us, not the economy and  not the political party. (although that might be true for some) God my focus should be on You and to do Your will. I pray for the men that I spend some time with yesterday. I pray for their souls. May they thirst for You like the do for fun, beer, laughter, companionship and steaks. I am not worthy to be called Your son, but still You sent Your Son to die for me on the cross. As I need daily sustenance to stay alive physically, how much more do I need spiritual sustenance daily !!! Amen

Are you blessed ?

  • Blessed means happy (superlatively happy) Do you feel blessed?
  • Happiness is not the goal of one who seeks God but the “by-product”
  • To seek God you must do it with all your heart. Are you seeking God with all your heart or do you worry constantly?
  • Seeking God means to “keep His statutes” Do you know what God’s will for your life is ?

Do you have the secret of happiness and peace with you ?

“And now just think a moment what a blessed life that must be—the presence of Jesus always abiding. Is not that the secret of peace and happiness.” – Murray, Andrew

Psalm 68-71

“But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.” – Psalm‬ ‭68:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Answer me, LORD, out of the goodness of your love; in your great mercy turn to me. Do not hide your face from your servant; answer me quickly, for I am in trouble. Come near and rescue me; deliver me because of my foes.” – ‭Psalm‬ ‭69:16-18 Niv

“But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; LORD, do not delay.” – Psalm‬ ‭70:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.” – ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭71:20-21‬ ‭NIV

Rejoice, happy and joyful we can be in God, not in the world. Like the bible says the world and it’s pleasures will pass away. God’s goodness of his love and great mercy, wow I fall so short of that. Can I say I have great mercy when someone pursues you with or without cause to your detrement. Amazing heart of David, his resolve was that God will always come to his rescue be his deliverer even though he had his 30 mighty men, God was no. 1 mighty Men in his world. What comforts you, God? David was comforted by God through his prayer being open, how open are you with God in your prayers?

Prayer

Morning Father thank you for sending Jesus so He can be my redeemer so that I can have a relationship with You again. Being accused falsely for trying to do your job is not nice. In the end we still have to be righteous because God in the end we are accountable before you. Help me to love people unconditionally and see them as sheep that is lost and share the good news with them. Disappointment in the world will happen but help me to love people as You do taking me back every day even when I have sin grieviously. Thank you God that heaven can be our home and we are just appassing through. Theangels  becon me from the heavens open door and I can’t feel at home in this world any more … O Lord you know I have no friend but You, if heaven is not my home then Lord what will I do. Amen
