Beloved fellow FReepers, here is an early-morning devotional with Psalm 19. Holy Spirit, You are welcome in this place; Lord Jesus, wrap your mighty wings around us and lift us up, let our countenances break out with joy at the glory and awesomeness of Your Creation, Love and Sovereignty.
"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork."
(Vs.2) "Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge."
(Vs.3) "There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."
(Vs.4) "Their line (Or, "rule", or "direction" Romans 10:18, "But I say, Have they not heard? Yes, verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.") is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun."
(Vs.5) "Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race."
(Vs.6) "His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof."
(Vs.7) "The law (Or, doctrine) of the LORD is perfect, converting (Or, restoring) the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple."
(Vs.8) "The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes."
(Vs.9) "The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true (Hebrew "truth") and righteousness altogether."
(Vs.10) "More to be desired are they then gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb (Or, the dropping of honeycombs)."
(Vs.11) "Moreover by them is thy servant warned: (Proverbs 6:22, "When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.") and in keeping of them there is great reward."
(Vs.12) "Who can understand his (NIV, their own) errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults."
(Vs.13) "Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression (Or, much)."
(Vs.14) "Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in they sight, O LORD, my strength (Hebrew, "rock"), and my redeemer."
Thank You, O LORD GOD, for Your Word--for Your Precious Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave us this awesome universe and the stupendous host therein, the Earth in which again the tremendous testimony of Creation literally cries out from the rocks (fossils, layers of strata laid down by The Flood) tabernacle-tent of our bodies where, when we trust in our Savior, Your Holy Spirit dwells with our spirit.
Thank You, Jesus, for this portion, this daily bread that we can feast upon and in doing so, worshipping You, the King of Glory. AMEN!
Was reading Psalm 138 this AM...God is here!
I’m going to read Psalm 138 too! Thanks!
I try to start my day with Psalm 19, I also have it pasted to my door, so that when I am in a hurry I am reminded.
