Praising God

Psalm 51:15:  O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth your praise. David had the guilt of sin in him.  He probably felt uncomfortable coming to the presence of God with the sin that he had committed and the price that he paid for it.  He wanted a strong assurance from God […]

Do what the word says

James 1:25:  But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. As long as we live in accordance with the word of God, we will be blessed in whatever […]

Private prayer, public reward!

Matthew 6:6:  But you when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. Prayer is talking to God but most of the times, it becomes a just a ritual for some.  […]

God’s peace

John 14:27:  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Obeying God’s word

Proverbs 16:20:  He who heeds the word wisely will find good, and whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he. Wisdom comes from God and unless we ask it of Him, we will live in ignorance of how much our life will be blessed if we had just asked God for wisdom.  If we know […]

Praise with understanding

Psalm 47:7:  God is the king of all the earth; sing praises with understanding. God is sovereign and supreme.  He rules the whole earth with wisdom and justice.  Whenever we praise Him, we have to do it with understanding that He is a great God. Our thinking and our brain cannot actually comprehend the fullness […]

Fear God and walk in His way

Psalm 128:1-2:  Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.  For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands; happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. If we respect God, we will walk in His ways.  When we walk in His ways, we shall be blessed […]

Thankfulness

II Chronicles 29:13:  Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. David and the people of Israel gave willingly to the temple of God.  They gave out of their wealth, treasure, abilities to God.  David is therefore thanking God for the gifts that the people gave for the work of God’s […]
