Psalm 147

Read Psalm 147 – Beloved!  Beloved!  It is another great day – starting with praise on my lips.

“Praise the LORD!  How good to sing praises to our God!  How delightful and fitting!” 147:1

Look at the wonderful order in Verses :2-4 of Jewish exiles, Gentiles everywhere and the entire universe – He counts the stars and calls them by name, :4.  Our God cherishes His creation.  “How great is our LORD!  His power is absolute!  His understanding is beyond comprehension!” :5  This is so precious to me.  I can drift to feelings of insignificance – I can convince myself of some downright stupid things – But God comprehends.  He gives me a moment to wallow and He rescues me ~ joy shines all the more after sorrow.

“He takes no pleasure in the strength of a horse or in human might.  No, the Lord’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love.”  :11  Our Abba keeps things so simple for us.  

Verse :17 made me laugh.  It does feel good to throw a rock across a lake – and moving that image to God hurling hail like breadcrumbs draws me to his sweetness in connecting my heart to his.  Next time you throw a rock, I hope you feel that much closer to God.🌨⚾️💪❤💪⚾️🌦
