Psalm 146

Read Psalm 146 – You will find the book of Psalm in the basic center of your Bible, really.  Just close your Bible, eyeball the center, open it and you’ll find it – after Job and before Proverbs.  

Okay, now read 146 before reading my thoughts on it.  Beloved, you always want to hear what The Holy Spirit has to say to you through Scripture first.  

Honesty day, Christmas is a difficult season for me.  I get lost between the Santa Claus fairytale I was raised with and the majesty of what really happened when Christ our Savior was born.  And the cherry on top is that no one even knows when that was – it’s not recorded – December 25th is the day we commemorate it – but only God knows.  Somewhere between all the “have-to’s” and “should’s” my joy takes a beating. 

But God saw this coming long ago and inspired King David to pen Psalm 146.  It starts and ends with praise.  It is filled with recall of the goodness of God. “He made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them.  He keeps every promise forever.  He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.  The LORD frees the prisoners.  The LORD opens the eyes of the blind.  The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down.  The LORD loves the godly…. :6-8.”   These words take my eyes off of me and put them on my glorious LORD!

Beloved, you may run into a dry spell, you may grow weary, but rest assured, Jesus has not gone anywhere!  He is the same yesterday, today and forever – Let your troubles fade as you take in the certainty of the LORD.
