August 1, 2019 – Psalm 66:1-4

Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of His name; give to Him glorious praise! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. All the earth worships You and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Psalm 66:1-4.

SHOUT, SING, and SAY worship praises to the Lord.  Even God’s enemies pretend to submit to you because of your great deeds. There is no other being as great as You.  

You bring Hope, You bring Joy, You bring Peace and Love.  When doubt overtakes us, fears of what might happen, I  simply remember how all Your creation praises You.  All of creation use their voices to sing praises to You. Let heaven and earth praise Him, the seas and everything that moves in them.  Psalm 69:34.  And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”  Mark 4:9.  

If I had entertained iniquity in my heart, The Lord could not have heard my cry, for He is Holy.  Have mercy on me, O God,  according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.  Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,  and cleanse me from my sin!  Psalm 51:1-2.

Be gracious to me, O LordSee my affliction from those who hate me, O You who lift me up from the gates of death,  that I may recount all Your praises, that in the gates of the daughter of Zion I may rejoice in Your salvation. Psalm 9:13-14. 

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.  Psalm 37:5

Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what He has done for my soul. I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. Psalm 66:16-18.
