PRAISE IS BEAUTIFUL!

Today’s Reading: Psalms 147

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion).

 

The sun burst over the unique sandstone topography in Timna Park in the Jordan Valley in Isreal. Such a scene should cause us to think of our Mighty Creator! It is most appropriate that the first and last words of today’s reading would be, “PRAISE THE LORD!”

Key Verses: Psalm 147:3-5

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite!

 

Our Creator not only created the stars, but He has a name for each one. Even with all our modern technology, astronomers have never been able to see all the stars and number them. Only our infinite God understands the vastness of the universe. Even though He is great in power, He is even greater in His care for His creation and, in particular, for us! He comes to us and heals the brokenhearted and binds up our wounds! We must remember that this Great Lord made us in His image, and therefore, He will not interfere unless invited to do so by those He put in charge of this world. That’s us! God chose the ancient Israelites to receive His Word for the entire human family, and through them we have been given the Word of God which we read every day. With this privilege comes an awesome responsibility… to do everything in our power to make sure the whole world would hear of the mercies and judgments of our holy and loving God.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

I am reminded, O God, in each Psalm I read that You are great! I marvel that You, the Creator of the universe, are so concerned about me as an individual. I pray for Your Spirit to so fill me that I will be able to effectively communicate Who You are to others. There is one person to whom I should speak today, and when the opportunity presents itself, may I be faithful and effective in sharing Your Word to that one, and others, by my words, my actions, and my giving. In the name of the One who did this 100% of the time, Jesus Christ. Amen!!!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I have the honour of being called “Founder” by the men and women of God who currently lead Crossroads. Our website 100huntley.com carries the daily 100 Huntley Street television show. I call this a “show” because we want to “show” the great God of the universe, Who “heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.” We, as a human family, must understand that the majority of the inhabitants of earth have made it clear that they don’t want God involved in their lives. God is not a dictator. He is a Lover! His great heart is broken! We’ve rejected His love. We’ve taken prayer and the Bible out of our public schools and much of the public square. Ever since our first human parents, we’ve separated ourselves from God and from His maintenance of creation over which He gave us dominion. Thus nature is left on its own, and the result is disaster after disaster. It’s our fault, not God’s. Yet we can respond with God’s love after such disasters and help to “bind up their wounds.” Crossroads provides ways to help (click here).

Yours for reaching out to others with God’s unending love,

David

  1. Thank You, Father, for You are worthy of all our praise and devotion. Help us all to count all our blessings and return our praise and thanks to You. In Jesus’s great name, amen

  2. If we want to reach the ‘unchurched’,we must stop using words that ‘they’ do not know or understand.We MUST speak to them on their own level,ie: “Saved” to them usually refers to money.We have to take them through Sunday school and I am one who does not have that gift…but,if the situation should arise,I know He will equip me.Yall have a good day and may God bless
    The World Forgot

    The world forgot what is right
    For we were supposed to teach them,
    By sharing with them the light
    But we could not reach them.

    Not long ago we ‘were’ them
    Until we found the light He gives;
    The One the world would condemn,
    Then died to show He lives.

    They don’t want to know our ways
    For they think their ways suit them best,
    But we know how it dismays
    When one begins the quest.

    We must begin to reach out
    Or we may loose them all to sin,
    So we must defeat the doubt,
    To plant the seed within.

    Using words at their command
    Will allow His word to imbed,
    Thus they can then understand
    How He rose from the dead.
    GW(Bill) Marshall/26 July, 2015

  3. Watched Joyce Meyer today & she said that instead of focusing on the waiting for your prayer to be answered, think of all that God has done for you over the years! I think that’s very good advice!

    • yes Doreen! yes, yes, yes! Praise and thank the Lord for all that He has done for us,
      I think I posted a Praise and Thanksgiving for a young man who quit smoking pot just a few weeks ago; he told me he was smoking it last year, I voiced my concerns and told him I would continue praying for me and WELL, PRAISE THE LORD, HE QUIT, he is in a 90 day program,, he has completed 30 days and is going back to College to get his degree as a care aide, SO, AGAIN, I SAY, THANK YOU LORD, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS OF THIS DAY.
      God bless all the people on this blog…………thanks again Doreen posting
      Blessings

  4. We are highly favoured by our God and when we give Him thanks and praise despite the hardships we so often face, He makes it well for us. Praise God–we are so blessed! Wishing all Saints a blessed day in the Lord!

    He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
    Colossians 1:13-14 ESV
