Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord: Psalm 126

Psalm 126

A song of ascents.screen-shot-2016-12-12-at-7-06-01-am

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
    we were like those who dreamed.
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
    our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
3 The Lord has done great things for us,
    and we are filled with joy.

Restore our fortunes Lord,
    like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them.

Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 16)

Psalm 16

A miktam of David.Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 5.26.24 AM

Keep me safe, my God,
    for in you I take refuge.

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
    apart from you I have no good thing.”
I say of the holy people who are in the land,
    “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
    I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
    or take up their names on my lips.

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
    even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
11 You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Time for a Great Cartoon! (pleasures of life)

Screen Shot 2014-10-12 at 8.35.27 PMOf course, there is more to life than its pleasures. There is the GOD who “gives us all things richly to enjoy”! (I Tim. 6). How sad to go through life enjoying His gifts, but ignoring the GIVER!
