9th July 2020: Our Daily deLIGHT~5th Day-Power
We have shared before how the book of Proverbs is the Wisdom of Yah; in like manner the book of Psalms is the Love of Yah!! The love He has for us, and the examples of how we can demonstrate our love for Him, is over and over in the book of Psalms. It is FULL of the GREAT works that YHVH performed by His mighty power!! Recognizing His power in everything is paramount to keeping us humble, as well as keeping our own abilities in their proper perspective. The only power and ability we have is what He has given us.
Psalm 150:1-2 says, 1 “Praise YHVH! Praise Elohim in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse [another translation: Praise Him in the firmament of His power]. 2 Praise Him for His mighty deeds [His powerful deeds]; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.”
Psalm 145:9-13 says, “9 YHVH is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works. 10 All Your works shall give thanks to You, O YHVH, and Your godly ones shall bless You [One way this is demonstrated is through the prayers that we do together when we’re gathered.]. 11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom and talk of Your power; 12 To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts [Your powerful acts] and the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.”
Psalm 105:1-4 says, “1 Oh give thanks to YHVH, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. 2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders. 3 Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek YHVH be glad. 4 Seek YHVH and His strength [His power]; Seek His face continually.”
Notice how many times we’re told in just these few verses to praise Him for His mighty [powerful] deeds AND to make it known among the peoples. It is not just for us to experience and know; we need to be sharing it with others. It is a light to the nations when we make His deeds known. Look for opportunities today to share about our Great Yah and remember…Thank Him, Seek Him and Give Him Praise!!
Have a blessed and shalom filled day!!
