Psalm 66 "How Awesome Are Your Deeds"
Joseph Morrow - July 05, 2017
Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! Say to God, â€œHow awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.â€ Selah
Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man. He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him, who rules by his might forever, whose eyes keep watch on the nationsâ€”let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of his praise be heard, who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip. For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried. You brought us into the net; you laid a crushing burden on our backs; you let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.
I will come into your house with burnt offerings; I will perform my vows to you, that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble. I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah
Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul. I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me! -Psalm 66
As I pondered what to write this week it occurred to me that this psalm says it all. The Author provided all we need to prepare our mind, heart & spirit for worship. Let's meditate on this passage as we ready ourselves & our families to worship & proclaim our King of kings!
Can't wait to worship Him with you,
