I sometimes need to be reminded of the good things in life. This Psalm amplifies joy in the Lord and the life that He willingly shares with each one of His people…
Remember we are His Children!!!
It is good to give thanks to you, O LORD,
to make music to praise your name, O Most High.
It is good to announce your mercy in the morning
and your faithfulness in the evening
on a ten-stringed instrument
and a harp and with a melody on a lyre.
You made me find joy in what you have done, O LORD.
I will sing joyfully about the works of your hands.
How spectacular are your works, O LORD!
How very deep are your thoughts!
A stupid person cannot know
and a fool cannot understand
that wicked people sprout like grass
and all troublemakers blossom like flowers,
only to be destroyed forever.
But you, O LORD,
are highly honoured forever.
Now look at your enemies, O LORD.
Now look at your enemies.
and all troublemakers are scattered.
But you make me as strong as a wild bull,
and soothing lotion is poured on me.
My eyes gloat over those who spy on me.
My ears hear the cries of evildoers attacking me.
Righteous people flourish like palm trees
and grow tall like the cedars in Lebanon.
They are planted in the LORD’s house.
They blossom in our God’s courtyards.
Even when they are old,
they still bear fruit.
They are always healthy and fresh.
They make it known that the LORD is decent.
He is my rock.
He is never unfair.
