LOVING THE PSALMS
|The Psalms are a blessing to read. They have such emotion in them that they speak to your heart. The Holy Spirit always speaks to my heart through the Psalms. Here are just a few thoughts as I have a early meeting this morning.|
1) FEAR NOT- Psalms 118:6 says: "The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?" The LORD is on our side and we need not fear about the outcome of any situation. Whether it be our health, our wealth, our relationships, our children, or grand children; we can trust the LORD and not fear the outcome. This life is temporal, and in eternity we will be with the LORD and be blessed eternally. Until that time, let us not fret or worry, but trust in the LORD.
2) OPEN MY EYES LORD- Ps. 119:18 says: "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law." Here is the prayer of a many who is about to read God's Holy Word. He prays for the Lord to "open" his eyes to see the beauty in God's Word. As we read the Bible, we must approach it for what it is: an inspired, holy book, that is alive! It speaks to us and the Holy Spirit causes that to happen. As you read the Bible, be sure to pray first and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart, strengthen your spirit, and correct and instruct your soul. God will do all of these things through His Word!!
3) PSALMS 130:3- "If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O LORD, who shall stand?"
Our sins are underneath the blood of Christ. Praise God for that!! We can rejoice that God does not mark up our sins for us, but when we got saved, all of our sins were covered and forgiven by the blood of Christ.
Hope you have a blessed day today. I'll write longer when I have more time. Hope you enjoy this time we spend together. May God bless!! Dr. Mike Mutchler, Pastor
