Re:Verse reading–Psalm 34 (day four)
The Psalmist gives us a contrast between the righteous and the wicked…the just and the unjust…those who seek Him and those who are proud…His servants and the evildoers.  His promises to protect, to sustain, to hear, to provide for, and to deliver the righteous give great comfort and strength to His saints.  The result in our lives when we live for God is praise; (v. 1) “I will bless the Lord, at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Does His praise rest continually in your mouth?  When we live in continual praise of God and walk in a righteous fear of Him, our lives reflect the difference to the world around us.  Our speech is pure and there is no deceit on our lips.  We are not afraid and we are delivered when we are crushed in spirit.  May our lives communicate the hope of His promises to a lost and dying world.

  1. Heavenly Father, since it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks, I praise you for the Work you have done in our hearts that allows us to see that indeed… “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”….

    “Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”

    Father, help us to fix our eyes/hearts/minds on You. Amen.
