Notes From the Pastor's Desk #notesfromthepastorsdesk
📖Psalm 34:1-7 (ESV)
I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
For me, this is one of the most beautiful psalms found in the book. It's a psalm that boasts about the only thing worthy of boasting about—our Lord! In this psalm of David, he is crying out in praise and worship to the Lord. He can't help but have praise for the Lord "continually" in his mouth. Not only in his mouth but also in his soul, he boasts in Him. From the depth of his soul comes forth praise and boasting in the Lord! David's cry is "Magnify the Lord with me!! Let's exalt His Name together!!" Then he goes on to say why. The Lord is not some mythical creature that cannot be found. When truly sought, the Lord is found and will answer and deliver you/me from all our fears! He is the God that hears when the poor man cries out! Not only does our God hear, but He also takes action upon the one that humbly cries out! "He saved him out of all his troubles!!" My dear friends, what a mighty God we serve that encamps around those who fear Him and delivers them!! Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good. Have a blessed week. Magnify the Lord with me on this precious day the Lord has made.
🙏I'm praying for you always. ❤️
