Saturday Psalm And Praise


Psalm 27
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple.For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock.And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.When Thou saidst, Seek ye My face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
Hide not Thy face far from me; put not Thy servant away in anger: Thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up teach me Thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the Lord. = Amen, wait upon the Lord. Do not run off and try to do things your own way, in your own strength. You will only be setting yourself up for failure. God will pour His strength into you, and you will become mighty in Him. You will be able to face those giants in your life, and easily defeat them. Wait, I say, upon the Lord my friend.

Wait on the Lord. I always thought that literally meant to wait.. to be still. But a dear friend showed me that it's actually more of an active verb.. to wait upon like a waiter at a restaurant. To serve the Lord. I like both meanings, because they both have a place in my life. Don't you just love the Psalms? They are a daily need for me now...
Blessings, dear friend!

Debbie said...

The Psalms, and David in particular are some kind of amazing, aren't they? If God can love David with all his ups and downs and poor choices, yet amazing heart, He can love me, too. A friend of mine and I were just reminding ourselves of this yesterday.

Amen sweet Denise! The book of Psalms is so full of songs, praise & expressions from the heart. No wonder God chose David, and continually searched his heart & bared it wide open for us. Indeed the LORD is our light & our salvation & the strength of our life. I can think of quite a few people who need this Psalm right now to help them through their situation of health, job, economics, family, whatever...we can be confident & praise the LORD & seek His face with all that is within us! Learning to wait upon the LORD & be still. Thanks Denise, beautiful PRAISE & PSALM for this day & for so many we lift in prayer. Love & hugs, Peggy
