This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“[Give] to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.”
(Psalm 29:2)

Set your eyes upon the Lord. Look to Him. Let our hearts be filled with worshipping the Lord, praising Him and giving glory to His name. Too often we get distracted by the world and by troubles; we even get distracted by serving the Lord and doing ministry, yet the Word commands us that we are to first seek and worship the Lord, then all else will be given to us. So it is in heaven and so it should be on Earth, if we will be obedient instead of being busy. The angels in heaven sing “Holy, holy, holy” and give God glory, and everything the Lord wishes to accomplish is accomplished. He will work all things through us, if we let Him. Start by worshipping the Lord and giving Him glory, and see what He will do through you.

May your lips be filled with praise and worship each day as you give Him glory.

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“… give thanks to the LORD for His goodness…” (Psalm 107:21a NKJV)

God is good; everything about God is good, for goodness is His very nature. All He has created is good; God’s goodness flows like living water from His throne of grace. God is good; there is no other like God: rich in mercy, patient and long-suffering, pouring out His blessings, showing love and kindness to each generation. He is wrapped in goodness like a cloak of light; it radiates from His very being. God is good, for He is trustworthy and true; He sent His son to redeem us, to bring His goodness to us, that His grace and mercy might save us, for His goodness overcomes all evil and is a shield about us. Give thanks to God for His great goodness; praise Him that He is good, for His goodness lasts forever. Amen.

May the goodness of the Lord bless you as you give Him praise and thanks.

This week’s scripture is from the Psalms:

“I will sing of the mercies of the LORD forever: with my mouth will I make known your faithfulness to all generations.

For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever: your faithfulness you shall establish in the very heavens.”   (Psalm 89:1-2 NKJV)

Let us be ever mindful of the great mercy of the Lord and His exceeding faithfulness. His mercies are new every day and His faithfulness is perfect, beyond measure.

This week’s scripture is from the Psalms:

“He has sent his redemption to His people; He has commanded His covenant forever:

Holy and awesome is His name”   (Psalm 111:9).

Thank God that He sent His son that we might know redemption through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Thank God that the new covenant in His blood for the forgiveness of sins sets us free. Thank God for His mercy and grace. Thank God that through His sacrifice we have the promise of eternal life with Him. This is truly good news. Holy and awesome is the name above all names. Praise God, praise God. Praise His holy name.

May the blessings of Christ, who died for us, be yours this day.

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
     (Psalm 27:14)

We should wait upon the Lord for He is our light and our salvation. Our Lord is like no other for there is no other like Him. He is our stronghold and our strength in times of trouble; let our hearts not fear but draw close to Him. Let us set our hearts on dwelling in the house of the Lord, safe in the day of trouble, for all the days of our lives. Let us rise with shouts of joy and sing to the Lord for He will not reject us or forsake us. Pray that the Lord teach us and lead us on the straight path. Praise Him, for we will see the goodness of the Lord if we will wait upon Him and be strong in His might, and secure in His everlasting love for us. Amen.

You who stand in the house of the LORD,
In the courts of the house of our God,

Praise the One who sits on high and blesses us with goodness and mercy. Forever praise Him.

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.   (Psalm 43.5)

Let us remember in whom our hope rests. When troubles assail us and our soul becomes troubled let us remember the One to whom we belong, the One who loves us with an everlasting love, the One to whom we can always turn for hope, for peace, for comfort. Let us remember to turn our troubles, our burdens, our pain, over to Him and to praise Him, to call on our Lord and Savior, our God in whom we can trust. Let us remember that whenever we are in a dark place He is our hope and our salvation, our help in time of trouble, our Lord who loves us, the God who never fails. Praise Him and place your hope in Him.

May the Lord bless you praise and hope in Him.
