|In Psalms 119, there are so many things to point out. Many I have in earlier blogs. Today I noticed phrases. Phrases where David is asking God to do something for him: "Teach me; Give me; Make me; Incline my heart; Turn away mine eyes; Turn away my reproach; Quicken thou me; Put me not; Remove from me; Open thou mine eyes; ... AND then, there are phrases about what David would be doing himself: "I keep thy law; I will speak; I will delight; I remembered; I kept they precepts; I entreated; I thought; I made haste; I have said; I kept they word; I delight; I know; I have;... and many others. The ideas is that sometimes we are asking God for His help and sometimes there are things we need to be doing!! David understood this. It wasn't all just waiting on God to do everything! We need to do what He desires from us.|
FAMILY- Psalms 127 is about Family!! Read the chapter with that in mind. It is only five short verses, but it is all about family. Verse one say we cannot build a house without God; Verse three says that children are God's heritage and reward; Verse four tells us that our children are like mighty arrows; and verse five tells us that we are blessed (happy) if we are blessed with many children. Wow! Family is very important to God!!
GOD WILL PERFECT IT! Psalms 138:8 says: "The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me". Yes, God will work out His plan in our lives, IF we will yield to Him!! We need to be yielding our lives to Christ all of the time, each and every day. Have you yielded your day to Him this morning? It is important that we learn to do this each and every day!!
LORD, take my life and let it be, consecrated LORD to thee!!
HAPPY PEOPLE- Psalms 145:15 says: "Happy is that people, whose God is the LORD." We certainly ought to be happy people! Heaven is our home, and our sins are forgiven! Praise God!!
A GREAT GOD! Psalms 147:4 says: "He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names." WOW!! God made the stars, but also named each star!! What a great God we have... Awesome!!
Have a blessed day!! Pastor Mike Mutchler
