Monday Meditations

Praise the LORD!

Praise, O servants of the LORD,

Praise the name of the LORD!

Blessed be the name of the LORD

From this time forth and forevermore!

From the rising of the sun to its going down

The LORD's name be praised.

The LORD is high above all nations,

His glory above the heavens.

Who is like the LORD our God,

Who dwells on high,

Who humbles Himself to behold

The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?

He raises the poor out of the dust,

And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,

That He may seat him with princes-

With the princes of His people.

He grants the barren woman a home,

Like the joyful mother of children.

Praise the LORD!

Psalm 113

This chapter evidences the glory and awesomeness of God. The middle section humbles me as I am reminded of God's place and mine in it's comparison- He is all-knowing and all-powerful and is to be feared and praised!
