Sunday Psalms 4

Psalm 4

Righteous GOD, answer my prayer. You have made me right in Your eyes. You have calmed my fears. Forgive me and hear my prayer.

Why do so many hate me? Why do they continue to listen to the lies and dishonesty of the know-it-alls?

GOD knows His children! GOD hears when we call!

Do not sin because you are angry. Think it through, pray about it, and don’t say what you are thinking. Ask for forgiveness and simply trust Him to do what needs to be done.

Selah! (Amen and yes!)

Thank You for the joy You have given in all You have provided. Shine Your goodness on us!

I will sleep in peace, knowing that You are protecting me.

I WILL SING

Let me sing to God all my life long

When are you most happy? Content? Calm?  Are you like David and know God’s closeness and approval through music?

There is a continual musical theme throughout the Bible.  From God speaking the world/universe into order (Which can also be translated ‘singing’.) to the Heavenly Host at the birth of Christ, to the massed choirs of Heaven singing at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.  From Bach to Mozart to BeethovenCasting Crowns to Selah to Matt Maher it’s all pleasing to Him.

God loves a good song!  For Him.  To Him.  About Him.  He has surrounded Himself with choirs of angels.  He hears the beauty, joy, peace, sadness, melancholy, and delight of each note and sound.  He loves it!

Abba, hear my song.  Let each note, each phrase, each verse be pleasing to Your ears.  Let my life be a continual song of praise to You!  Make it so, Lord!

Blessings to you and yours!

Marie
