It Is Good to Praise the LORD – Psalm 92

It Is Good to Praise the LORD – Psalm 92

Psalm 92 (NIV) A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.  1 It is good to praise the LORD        and make music to your name, O Most High,   2 to proclaim your love in the morning        and your faithfulness at night,  3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre        and the melody of the harp.  4 For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD;        I sing for joy at the works of your hands….

 (Psalm 84, NIV) 1 How lovely is your dwelling place,        O LORD Almighty!  2 My soul yearns, even faints,        for the courts of the LORD;        my heart and my flesh cry out        for the living God.  3 Even the sparrow has found a home,        and the swallow a nest for herself,        where she may have her young—        a place near your altar,        O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.  4 Blessed…

How Exquisite Your Love, O God! Psalm 36

How Exquisite Your Love, O God! Psalm 36

Psalm 36 (The Message, emphasis mine)  1-4 The God-rebel tunes in to sedition— all ears, eager to sin.    He has no regard for God,       he stands insolent before him.    He has smooth-talked himself       into believing    That his evil       will never be noticed.    Words gutter from his mouth,       dishwater dirty.    Can’t remember when he       did anything decent.    Every time he goes to bed,       he fathers another evil plot.    When he’s loose on the streets,       nobody’s safe.    He plays with fire       and doesn’t…

Light, Space, Zest – That’s GOD! Psalm 27

Psalm 27 (The Message)  1 Light, space, zest— that’s God!    So, with him on my side I’m fearless,       afraid of no one and nothing.  2 When vandal hordes ride down       ready to eat me alive,    Those bullies and toughs       fall flat on their faces.  3 When besieged,       I’m calm as a baby.    When all hell breaks loose,       I’m collected and cool.  4 I’m asking God for one thing,       only one thing:    To live with him in his house       my whole life…

God’s Glory Is on Tour in the Skies -Psalm 19

God’s Glory Is on Tour in the Skies -Psalm 19

Psalm 19 (The Message, emphasis mine) 1-2 God’s glory is on tour in the skies, God-craft on exhibit across the horizon. Madame Day holds classes every morning, Professor Night lectures each evening. 3-4 Their words aren’t heard, their voices aren’t recorded, But their silence fills the earth: unspoken truth is spoken everywhere. 4-5 God makes a huge dome for the sun—a superdome! The morning sun’s a new husband leaping from his honeymoon bed, The daybreaking sun an athlete racing to…

Listen to This Prayer of Mine, God! -Psalm 143

Psalm 143 (the Message, emphasis mine) 1-2 Listen to this prayer of mine, God; pay attention to what I’m asking. Answer me—you’re famous for your answers! Do what’s right for me. But don’t, please don’t, haul me into court; not a person alive would be acquitted there. 3-6 The enemy hunted me down; he kicked me and stomped me within an inch of my life. He put me in a black hole, buried me like a corpse in that dungeon….

You know me inside and out – Psalm 139

 Psalm 139 (The Message)1-6 God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.    I’m an open book to you;       even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.    You know when I leave and when I get back;       I’m never out of your sight.    You know everything I’m going to say       before I start the first sentence.    I look behind me and you’re there,       then up ahead and you’re there, too—       your reassuring presence, coming and going.    This is too much,…

Blessed Is the (Wo)Man – Psalm 1

Blessed Is the (Wo)Man – Psalm 1

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Not so the wicked!They are like chaffthat…
