Psalm 33

logo

Today, I thank God for my friend Mary, who taught me about the life of a Monarch Butterfly.

Happy Birthday friend!

May God bless you and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon you and sing sweet songs to your heart every day. I love you and treasure you beyond measure.

Peace and Love,

your friend,

‘Lizbeth.

Psalm 33

A Psalm of Joy

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!

For praise from the upright is beautiful.

Praise the Lord with the harp; make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.

Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy.

For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth.

He loves righteousness and justice;

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

By word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;

He lays up the deep in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord;

Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded and it stood fast.

The Lord brings the counsel of nations to nothing;

He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.

The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the He has chosen as His own inheritance.

The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men.

From the place of His dwelling He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth;

He fashions their hearts individually; He considers their works.

No king is saved by the multitude of an army;

A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.

A horse is a vain hope for safety, neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,

On those who hope in His mercy,

to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the Lord;

He is our help and our shield.

For our heart shall rejoice in Him,

because we have trusted in His holy name.

Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You.

~Psalm 33, nkjv

Suffer No Regret

Psalm Two

 

chrysanthemums, orange daisy

Why the big noise, nations?

Why the mean plots, peoples?

Earth-leaders push for position,

Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks,

The God deniers, the Messiah-defiers:

“Let’s get free of God! Cast loose from Messiah!”

Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing.

At first He’s amused at their presumption;

Then He gets good and angry.

Furiously, He shuts them up:

“Don’t you know there’s a King in Zion?  A coronation banquet is spread for Him on the holy summit.”

 

Let me tell you what God said next.

He said, “You are My Son, and today is Your birthday.  What do You want?  Name it:

nations as a present? Continents as a prize? You can command them all to dance for You, or throw them out with the trash.”

 

So, rebel-kings, use your heads;

Upstart judges, learn your lesson:

Worship God in adoring embrace. Celebrate in trembling awe.  Kiss Messiah!

Your very lives are in danger, you know;

His anger is about to explode,

but if you make a run for God – you won’t regret it!

When I was a kid, Wednesdays were always referred to as hump day.  The day in the middle of the week that was just another school day.  Memories from the last weekend were fading and the next weekend was forever away.  I now find the same to be true.  Wednesday is a day that really doesn’t seem special at all.  I always find I need a little extra lift on Wednesdays, some snippet of Scripture or a quote that gives me pause to redirect my focus on God instead of the mundane tasks we all face during the week, be it work or laundry or errands, to give me a boost into the weekend.  Quiet time is wonderful, but I love finding Scripture throughout my day when I am not studying – sometimes in the least likely of places.

 

 

Every Wednesday at A Quiet Chaos, I will post God’s words to give us the boost we all need to make it through to the glorious weekend.

 

Psalm 1

How well God must like you –

you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon,

sunflowers

you don’t slink along Dead-end Road,

you don’t go to Smart-mouth College.

 

Instead you thrill to God’s Word,

you chew on Scripture day and night.

you’re a tree replanted in Eden,

bearing fresh fruit every month,

never dropping a leaf,

always in blossom.

 

you’re not at all like the wicked,

who are mere windblown dust –

without defense in court,

unfit company for innocent people.

 

God charts the road you take.

The road they take is Skid Row.

Mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you,

Elizabeth
