A Psalm For Your Sunday

photo (7)

*Psalm 111…

Praise the Lord!

I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly.

Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them.

Glorious and majestic are His deeds, and His righteousness endures forever.

He has caused His wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate.

He provides food for those who fear Him; He remembers His covenant forever.

He has shown His people the power of His works, giving them the lands of other nations.

The works of His hands are faithful and just; all His precepts are trustworthy. They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.

He provided redemption for His people; He ordained His covenant forever — holy and awesome is His name!

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding.

To Him belongs eternal praise!

 *…the bold-print, the italics, and the exclamation points were my touches as I typed this out…because this Psalm is a beautiful depiction of who our God is and so I can’t read this without being excited about His goodness and the fact that He, this incomparable and unassailable God,  loves us!
