A healthy Portion for the Day!

Psalm 111 "Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord, they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are His deeds, and His righteousness endures forever. He has CAUSED HIS WONDERS TO BE REMEMBERED; the Lord is gracious and compassionate. He provides food for those who fear him; He remembers His covenant forever. He has shown His people the power of His works, giving them the lands of other nations. The WORKS OF HIS HANDS ARE FAITHFUL AND JUST; all His precepts are trustworthy. They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness. He PROVIDED REDEMPTION for His people; He ordained His covenant forever-HOLY AND AWESOME IS HIS NAME. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise."

This is such a good scripture. If you take the time to read it a few times over, it begins to really sink in. Meditate on this today if you can.

Lord God, we ask that you cause your wonders to be remembered. We thank you that all of your work is faithful and just. We thank you that you provide redemption for your people and ask that you do that for the people in our area that are crying out to you...and those who aren't but need to. We thank you Father that Holy and Awesome is your name. Make yourself Holy and Awesome in this land. Thank you God that if we follow your precepts, your word says we will have "good understanding" Help us to understand and to walk in your ways. Remove the scales from our eyes and help us to see your plans for your people...your plan to restore your people, to show yourself in power, and to offer forgiveness that is so undeserved. Thank you God for who you are! We do indeed praise your name, for ever and ever. We love you Lord!
