Counsel

Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?  The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed,”
Psalms 2:1‭-‬2 NASB

The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.

The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
Psalms 33:10-‬12 NASB

🌹With whose counsel* do you stand?

Lord may our hearts always seek Your counsel over any other and the plans of Your heart. Amen

*counsel: advice; opinion or instruction given in directing the judgment or conduct of another.

He Spoke

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host. 
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses.  Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
Psalms 33:6‭-‬9 NASB

🌹By His word, one breath. . . Do you stand in awe and shear reverence of God? He spoke. . . Done. His commands stand still today.

God, today may we stand in awe of You and the brilliant God You are. To You be the glory for the things You have done! Praise You for the things You are still doing!

Sing

Sing for joy in the Lord, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright. Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.
Psalms 33:1-2 NASB

Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy. 
For the word of the Lord is upright, And all His work is done in faithfulness.
Psalms 33:3‭-‬4 NASB

🌹He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord .
Psalms 33:5 NASB

Sing with a grateful heart for the joy of the Lord today.

Jesus in You

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.
Psalms 71:18 NASB

We are needed now more than ever to stand on the truth of God and spread the power of God to all, to declare His strength to this generation!

Let this be our banner cry:

We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. 

That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born,
That they may arise and tell them to their children,

That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments,
Psalms 78:4‭, ‬6‭-‬7 NASB

🌹Where is your confidence? Do others see and know who your confidence is in? Do others see and hear Jesus in you?

🎶 Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you.
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true;
Let others see Jesus in you.

Then live for Christ both day and night,
Be faithful, be brave and true,
and lead the lost to life and Christ.
Let others see Jesus in you.

Continually Seeking Him,

An Upright Heart Gives Thanks

I shall give thanks to You with uprightness of heart, When I learn Your righteous judgments.
I shall keep Your statutes; Do not forsake me utterly!

The Rock

The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 

Planted in the house of the Lord, They will flourish in the courts of our God.

They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green, 

To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Psalms 92:12‭-‬15 NASB

The righteous man, planted in the house of the Lord, will bear fruit, even in old age, and proclaim that the Lord is upright and righteous.

🌹 Is He your rock in whom there is no unrighteousness?

Abide in My Love

Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.
John 15:9 NASB

John 15:10 NASB

Keep the Word

Oh that my ways may be established (steadfast) To keep (obey)Your statutes (decrees, laws)!  Then I shall not be ashamed When I look upon all Your commandments.
Psalms 119:5‭-‬6 NASB

How do we obey God’s statutes? When we know His commandments and keep them. How do we know them? You must open the word of God and read. Open the word of God and know. Then we obey them.

🌹 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.  He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
John 14:23‭-‬24 NASB

How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.

Are you blessed?

They also do no unrighteousness; They walk in His ways.
You have ordained Your precepts, That we should keep them diligently.
