I Will Look With Favor

6 I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,
that they may dwell with me;
he who walks in the way that is blameless
shall minister to me.
7 No one who practices deceit
shall dwell in my house;
no one who utters lies
shall continue before my eyes.
8 Morning by morning I will destroy
all the wicked in the land,
cutting off all the evildoers
from the city of the LORD
(Psalm 101:6-8 ESV)

When we are faithful in seeking the Lord and follow his commands He will look upon us with favor and allow us to dwell with Him. Those who are blameless will minister to Him. When we practice deceit He will not allow us to dwell in His house. Each day He will destroy all of the wicked in the land removing the wicked from the Lord’s city.

Heavenly Father, May we seek to come to you and follow your commands each day eschewing wickedness and seeking to be righteous that we may be looked upon with Your favor and dwell securely in Your city. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Know the Lord

3 Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
(Psalm 100:3-5 ESV)

The Lord God created us, and we are his; we are his people. As such, we are to enter his gates with thanksgiving and praise! Give thanks to the Lord and bless his Holy name! The Lord is good, his steadfast love continues forever, and he is faithful to all generations until the end of time.

Heavenly Father, We know that you created us and we come to you giving you thanks and praise. For, we are your people giving you thanks and blessing your name. We know that you are good, and your steadfast love continues to all generations. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

They Called Upon His Name

6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
Samuel also was among those who called upon
his name.
They called to the LORD, and he answered them.
7 In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them;
they kept his testimonies
and the statute that he gave them.
8 O LORD our God, you answered them;
you were a forgiving God to them,
but man avenger of their wrongdoings.
(Psalm 99:6-8 ESV)

In the time of the Old Testament and the New Testament, there were those led by the Holy Spirit to call on God’s name. He came to them in various ways and they kept his testimonies and the rule he gave them. God answered them and forgave them of their wrongdoings. Those who call on God’s name in any age will be heard and answered.

Heavenly Father, You are ready to listen when we call on your name and willingly answer us as is best for us. May we continue to call on you so that our needs will be provided. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Make a Joyful Noise

4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
5 Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre,
with the lyre and the sound of melody!
6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn
make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!
(Psalm 98:4-6 ESV)

As we wake in the morning we hear the joyful praise the birds are singing, and the joyful sound the wind makes as it blows, and we realize that these are the joyful noise the earth makes to the Lord as it awakens. On the sabbath day, we leave and go to services where we sing praises along with the instruments that make a melody of praise to the Lord.

Heavenly Father, Let us give thanks and praise to you through song and melody that is pleasing to you and uplifting to all who participate. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

The Lord Reigns

1 The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and burns up his adversaries all around.
(Psalm 97:1-3 ESV)

The whole earth is to rejoice in the reign of the Lord. Yet, he is hidden behind thick dark clouds. His throne is founded on righteousness and justice. His fire burns up all of his adversaries.

Heavenly Father, Your reign causes the whole earth to rejoice and your people everywhere to proclaim your name to all who are in the reach of the sound of your praise. May all who seek and follow the Lord praise his name with loud voices. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Great Is the Lord

4 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the LORD made the heavens.
6 Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
(Psalm 96:4-6 ESV)

The Lord is great and to be feared above all idols, for he made the heavens. Splendor and strength and beauty are in his sanctuary. He is to be praised above all the earth for he made it and the heavens.

Heavenly Father, You made the earth and the heavens. You are to be feared above all worthless idols. You are to be praised for your steadfast love for all that you have made. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

The Lord Is Great

3 For the LORD is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
(Psalm 95:3-5 ESV)

How often do we think about how great our God is? He is the King above all gods. He created the depths of the earth and the heights of the mountains. He made the seas and formed the dry land. God made all that there is and without Him, nothing was made.

Heavenly Father, How great you are. With your hand, you made the earth, the seas, and the dry land. You set the world in its course around the sun and created the entire univers. There Is no other god like you. You are King over all and the creator of all. You are the only God worthy of our praise. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Blessed Is the Man

12 Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O LORD,
and whom you teach out of your law,
13 to give him rest from days of trouble,
until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For the LORD will not forsake his people;
he will not abandon his heritage;
15 for justice will return to the righteous,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.
(Psalm 94:12-15 ESV)

When we seek the Lord as a father, he will discipline us to bring us to righteousness and holiness. As he does so we are blessed as we learn his law, as it gives us rest from the trouble of the day. When we are his people he will not forsake us, he will not abandon us; for justice will come to the righteous and the upright in heart will follow it.

Heavenly Father, As we come seeking you through your word, we come to know that it is there to train us in righteousness, and holiness. As we learn and become more righteous we are blessed and come to understand you will not leave or forsake us. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

The Lord Reigns

1 The LORD reigns; he is robed in majesty;
the LORD is robed; he has put on strength as his belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
2 Your throne is established from of old;
you are from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD,
the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring.
4 Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
mightier than the waves of the sea,
the LORD on high is mighty!
(Psalm 93:1-4 ESV)

We cannot see the Lord as he is robed, and has strength as his belt. Yet, we sense that the world is set in its place by him and will not be moved. We understand that the Lord is everlasting. We hear the floods as they roar through a canyon. Yet mightier than the floods or the waves of the sea is the Lord almighty.

Heavenly Father, Your throne was established before the dawn of time and the creation of the world. It is you who established the universe and established the world in its place. May we always recognize your power is mightier than the thunder of floods or even the waves of the sea. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

It Is Good

1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2 to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night,
3 to the music of the lute and the harp,
to the melody of the lyre.
4 For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work;
at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
(Psalm 92:1-3 ESV)

Do you find that giving praise to the Lord is good both morning and night? Is praising his steadfast love part of your day? Has the Lord’s work made you glad and do you sing for joy? If this is true for you make sure that you also tell others about the Lord and what he has done in your life to make you glad for the work he has done.

Heavenly Father, It is always good to give you praise for your steadfast love and the work of your hands. May we sing praise to you when we rise and when we retire as you are always with us through all of our days. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
