Tuesday, August 20, 2013 – Psalm 34; 2 Samuel 18:9-18; Acts 23:12-24 and Mark 11:27-12:12

Psalm 34 – 12 Which of you desires life,
    and covets many days to enjoy good?

I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t answer; I do! We all desire life, good life so how do we go about finding it? Our Psalm gives us many good clues to the answer to that question.

I will bless the Lord at all times;
    his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
    let the humble hear and be glad.

May we seek to bless the Lord at all times and make our boast in the Lord. I could boast of good things I have done, but they pale in comparison to all God’s good works and the good I do is only done because of the good God has and is doing. May I seek always to praise the Lord. I believe this is how we bless the Lord at all times.

O taste and see that the Lord is good;
    happy are those who take refuge in him.
O fear the Lord, you his holy ones,
    for those who fear him have no want.

There is a saying; “God is good all the time! All the time God is good! May we know this and live by this.

Fear of God is one of the theological principals that can bring about a lot of discussion. Happened recently in the Sunday school class I lead, when we watched a video on fearing God. For me the fear of God is to know that God is the ultimate one, the sovereign one, the one who can give life and take life. I am to love, respect, honor this one who IS and will always be.

As we go about our day, may we seek to love and serve the Lord, which is how we can bless the Lord now and always.

O magnify the Lord with me,
    and let us exalt his name together.

O God, this day may I bless and magnify you by loving You, serving You and seeking to glorify You through all I think, say and do. Amen.
