The Psalms - Part Two



We're still in the thick of winter here, but I'm looking forward to spring. : ) I thought I'd share a few more Psalms with you today. You can check out my first post... HERE

They are so beautiful and meaningful. They remind me of God's great truths.


I'm reminded to thank the Lord for His goodness:

"Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness." Psalm 107:8-9



I'm reminded that I need His direction:

"You have commanded us
To keep Your precepts diligently.


Oh, that my ways were directed
To keep Your statutes!"  Psalm 119:4-5



I'm reminded of the importance of God's Word and that it gives life:

"How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.

With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!

Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.

Blessed are You, O LORD!
Teach me Your statutes.

With my lips I have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.

I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.

I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.

I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word." Psalm 119: 9-16

"Remember the word to Your servant,
Upon which You have caused me to hope.

This is my comfort in my affliction,
For Your word has given me life." Psalm 119:49-50


I'm reminded that God knows my every sin and that they are marked against me. Yet He forgives those who love and fear Him:

"If You, LORD, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?

But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared." Psalm 130:3-4


I'm reminded that He created me and knows me fully:

"O LORD, You have searched me and known me.

You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.


You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.


For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.


You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.


Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it." Psalm 139:1-6


"For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.


I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.


My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.


Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them." Psalm 139:13-16
