July 7, 2017 – Psalm 138:5-6

Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways, for the glory of the Lord is very great. Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud. Psalm 138:5-6

When you lift your hands up high, And you sing a song of praise to me. It brings me great delight, Such a lovely sigh, and yes, it is true – Praise looks good on you!  (Don Moen)

In Exodus 15, two  praise songs are recorded after the Children of Israel were miraculously saved from the Egyptian soldiers by crossing the Red Sea on dry land.  Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord: “I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea. ”  In verse 21, And Miriam sang this song: “Sing to the Lord,  for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea.”

Praising God begins and never ends, for His right hand saves us.  We rest in our Lord alone.  He gives us the voices and instruments to praise Him.

In Revelation 15:2-4, are the words God revealed to John.  I saw before me what seemed to be a glass sea mixed with fire. And on it stood all the people who had been victorious over the beast and his statue and the number representing his name. They were all holding harps that God had given them.  And they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your works, O Lord God, the Almighty. Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations. Who will not fear you, Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous deeds have been revealed.”

How can I say thanks or the things You have done or me? … All that I am and ever hope to be, I give it all to Thee….(My Tribute)

Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies.  You reach out  your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me. Psalm 138:7
