Key Verses: Psalms 145:3,13
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!…Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Psalm 145 is another acrostic poem in the Hebrew language. It serves as an introduction to the final five hymns of praise and worship! The theme is in verse five. David extols, blesses, meditates, declares, speaks, and tells us all that every day he will make known with his mouth the praises of the Lord! Praising God not only involves private and public worship but let us never forget that it means telling others in the world around us, particularly teaching the next generation all about God and His mighty deeds!
In Psalm 146 the great king, David, makes a declaration. We are to praise the greatest King, the One Who is King of kings! David states that as long as he lives he will practice what he preaches to us. He ends the Psalm with another, “PRAISE THE LORD!!!”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, I know that You alone are the One in whom I can put total, ultimate trust. Therefore, I trust the One Who did as Psalm 146 says, “Opens the eyes of the blind,” “Raises those who are bowed down and loves the righteous” (remember He gives us His righteousness by faith), “Watches over the strangers,” “Relieves the fatherless and widow,” and “Turns upside down” (the wicked). In the Name of this One, the One Whose Name is Jesus, I pray. Amen!!!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
This day here in Canada is called “Remembrance Day.” I am remembering those who gave their lives to secure our peace and freedoms in this land. I think that I can best honour these who fell in battle by focusing on the death of the Lord Jesus Christ in the greatest war of all…the war against sin, death itself, the devil and his forces of evil. The other day I attended a Remembrance function. I sat at a table with a mother and father who had lost a son in the Afganistan war. Their son had a premonition of his death and made a videotape for his parents, a portion of which we hope to play on today’s 100 Huntley Street telecast. I’ve been invited to participate on air today. I ask for the prayers of my fellow bloggers. Thanks! O yes, I’ve just read again Psalm 146:5a. In yesterday’s reading there were two uses of the word, “Happy.” Here’s the third “Happy.” I slept last night in my “Happy, Happy, Happy” T-shirt pictured in yesterday’s blog. I am a happy person! Praise the Lord!!!
Yours for remembering to remember, not just once a year but daily!
P.S. There was a wedding yesterday afternoon in the Towne Square at the Crossroads Centre in Burlington. The number of guests were too many for the Chapel. Rev. Ray David Glenn, minister of St. Georges Anglican Network Church, a congregation that meets every Sunday in the Crossroads Centre, performed the marriage ceremony. Ray David’s precious former wife, the late Rhonda Glenn, was my co-host for several years on the 100 Huntley Street telecast. If blog readers have never visited the home of the Crossroads Family of Ministries, please do so and ask for a tour by my son Ron or a wonderful man by the name of Chuck! Call the Centre at 905-335-7100 to visit. Breakfast and lunch are served Mondays through Fridays.
