Psalm 109 to Psalm 134


109 David asks that God give him peace and reward the evil of his enemies with evil

110 David says God told him David would sit at the right hand of God and his enemies would be judged by God

111 David says he will praise God and that the works of God will be known forever

112 David says he will praise the Lord and that those who praise the Lord will be blessed and the wicked will see them and be grieved

113 David says to praise the Lord and that the Lord can raise up the poor to greatness

114 David says that even the rivers and the earth are bowed back by the might and power of God in God’s people

115 David says that glory should be given to God and not the people of God

116 David says he loves God because when death was all around, God saved him

117 David says praise god because his merciful kindness and truth lasts forever

118 David tells the people to give thanks to God because God is good and will always be there and that David will exalt and praise God

119 David gives an alphabet of prayers and praise to God

132 David asks God to remember David now that David is in trouble and needs help

133 David says it is good for brothers to live together in peace and harmony

134 David tells the people to bless God because God made heaven and earth


What stands out in my mind about this group of scriptures is the fact that David praises God in all things. He praises God when he is blessed and David praises God when he is afflicted. David recognizes that sometimes he has done wrong and deserves the punishment or trouble that he has. But David also realizes that God is still his father and that if David calls on God, God will answer him. David knows that if he humbles himself, seeks Gods face, turns from his wicked ways and prays, God will hear David and restore him. This is something all of us could stand to do - praise God in all things and remember that even when you have done wrong and your enemies or circumstances fill you with sadness and despair, call on God and God will answer you, save you and protect you.



Heavenly Father, as always I thank you for all the things you have done, so many things in so many ways that it is impossible to count. Lord I humble myself and lay before you seeking your face, turn from my sinful ways, turn from my wrong doing and pray. I pray that you use me as you see fit. I pray that you help me to see your vision for my life. I pray that you help me to be what you want. I pray that when people see me, my life, my blessings and how I have overcome that they do not see me but see you in me. I pray that people see the God in me and want to get closer to you. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
