LOVING THE PSALMS
Today is Tuesday. I hope you are having a great day so far. Here are some thoughts from the Psalms:
1) A WONDERFUL CHAPTER- Ps. 119- This whole chapter is amazing. It is broken down into 22 sections. Each section is another letter of the Hebrew alphabet. (That is what you see in the heading). Each section consist of 8 verses. Each of the eight verses start off with the same Hebrew letter as the section they are in. Every verse refers to the Word of God in all 176 verses! So many of these verses are quotable that they are well known. vs. 9, 11, 18, 89, 97, 105, and 165 to name a few. Memorize these verses at least and you will be blessed.
2) HE HEARD ME=Ps. 120- "In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me." Isn't it comforting to know that God hears and answers prayer. Whatever your problems are, there is someone who desires to hear all about them and can do something about them. Pour your heart out to God.
3) I GET TO GO TO CHURCH! Ps. 122- "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD." I feel the same way. I get to go to church today!! I know I'm a preacher, but I love church and preaching and teaching and singing and greeting others!! WOW. I was GLAD when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD!!
4) SOUL-WINNING Ps. 126:5,6- If we go sowing the precious seed of God's Word with tears of compassion, then we will come home rejoicing having reaped the harvest. Seeing people get saved is a wonderful blessing. Last week my nephew got to lead a soul to Christ and he was so excited. I have led thousands to Christ, and I still get excited about every single one! They are out there, but there is a great lack of laborers. The field is white already to Harvest!!
Well, I hope you have a blessed day in the LORD. Pastor Mike Mutchler
