Psalm 34:1-7

1. I will extol the Lord at all times, His praise will always be on my lips.

2. My soul will boast in the Lord, let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His Name together.

4. I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.

5. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

6. This poor man called and the Lord heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles.

7. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.

This Psalm was my reading yesterday. There is, like so much of the bible so much that we could say about the first part of this Psalm. The fact that whatever our circumstances we must praise the Lord and give Him the glory. David we are told wrote this Psalm at a time of particular challenge in his life.

Then we need to seek God. To seek Him while He may be found we are told in Isaiah 55:6. Cath and I heard yesterday that people seem to be doing this as the sale of bibles is increasing during this period of isolation. V 2 let the afflicted hear and rejoice!

It is when we look to Him, seek Him, that He gives us the strength for each day and our faces even become radiant. It doesn’t matter who we are, if we call out to the Lord He will hear, just as He saved David out of his troubles. We need to remember that the angels of the Lord are encamped around those who fear, trust in the Lord.

This is not the chorus I was looking for but it is a more modern song based on today’s reading which you may like to listen to.

I will send out the link to tomorrow’s service later today.

Every blessing,
