Psalm 108 has much to say about our Relationship with the Lord. God has called His people, Christians everywhere, anytime, any conditions, to be steadfast, fixed on Him and His Greatness, focused on doing right to Him and others.
We should make joyful music in our hearts for Him. We should awaken each day with God in mind. We should acknowledge and praise Him among others. Great is His Name and His Love is even higher than the Heavens. We can ask Him to save us and help us, so that we may be delivered from our sins and shortcomings and be given strength to walk with Him and treat others as we would want to be treated.
Read Psalm 108:1-6 and be blessed.
My heart, O God, is steadfast;
I will sing and make music with all my soul.
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
Save us and help us with your right hand,
that those you love may be delivered.
Seek the Lord this day, tell Him and others of His Greatness and Faithfulness. Let Him know you are with Him based on how you treat and encourage others. Let Him know you are grateful for His Salvation and Deliverance.
Show the Lord your love for Him based on how you treat others, at work, home, and Church, and everywhere.
Are you kind and considerate and encouraging, if not, are you disgruntled, quarrelsome, and non-responsive to others. Are you full of hope or gloom and doom. Are you filled with joy or not, love or animosity, do you begrudge others because they are not like you, or do you focus on pleasing God and realize that is enough. Do you shun others and be so foolish to think our Lord and those shunned don’t know. People see us for who we are not who we think we are.
When we are steadfast on Him and lift Him up above ourselves, He will bring blessings. When we are good to all others, He will bless us. Simply stated, when we don’t, we erode away blessings that we otherwise would have enjoyed.
Gracious Lord in Heaven,
Forgive us our sins and shortcomings, grant us your Mercy and Grace. Give us hope and trust and renewed Faith in all we do.
Help us to hold our heads high yet with humble hearts and know we are a Child of the King, the Children of God. Lead us to be good to others and show kindness, love, and compassion to us and others. May we give to others as you have given to us. Let us be steadfast with our eyes and faith on You. Bless our families, friends, and Church families, with your Peace, Joy, Compassion, Strength and Guidance. Teach us Your way and give us Knowledge and Wisdom to live by. Grant us Wisdom, prosperity, generosity, security and great Hope. Let us know You are God and bless us and may we bless others.
Guide us to treat others with respect and kindness so they will know You are God and we make our calling confident and sure by the things we do for You and others.
In Jesus Name,
Cedar Plains Christian Church
