Praise! Praise! Praise!!

Normally I talk about how God wants us to live and or how to change the world and make it a better place. Today I am moved to go into another direction, and just praise God! So, as today's sermon I offer you Psalm 33 (NKJV). I would like suggest bookmarking so during the week, especially during the difficult times, you can come right back here and read this. It will make you feel better! Love, Beau

Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful.
Praise the LORD with the harp;
Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

For the word of the LORD is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;
He lays up the deep in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the LORD;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.

The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
The counsel of the LORD stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

The LORD looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works.

No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.

Beau,
Thank you for listening to the LORD. I really needed to be reminded to praise the LORD in all situations. May God bless you and your mom, and keep both of you safe.

The lines that spoke to Our Hearts were:
"He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works."
I'm not sure how to express how this makes us feel, except to leave Us in complete Awe of His Empathy, Compassion and so many attributes mere humans can not begin to understand!

We wish to leave prrayers and good thoughts to your Mum also, Beau.
And Thank you for an always uplifting sermon!
