The Encouragement of Psalms


Dear Gail-Friends:

Do you know the encouragement of the Psalms?  My practice is to read one psalm every night before bed. Psalm 91 is my favorite and I've been working on memorizing it.  It's not easy at my age, but I will persevere.

I found Psalm 124 to be a great lifter of the soul on many occasions.  I've been through many battles in my seven decades of life.  But praise and glory to His Name, I've come through every one victoriously with a Golden Nugget -- a lesson that has helped me know Him better.  Haleluyah!  

This version is from the Tree of Life Bible.

Psalm 124

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
“Had Adonai not been on our side”
—let Israel now say—
“Had Adonai not been on our side,
when men rose up against us,
then they would have swallowed us alive,
when their wrath burned against us.
Then the waters would have engulfed us,
the torrent would have swept over our soul,
then the raging waters
would have swept over our soul.”

Blessed be Adonai, who has not given us
as prey for their teeth.
Our soul has escaped like a bird
out of the snare of the trappers—
the snare is broken, and we escaped!
Our help is in the Name of Adonai,
Maker of heaven and earth.

Do you have a psalm that ministers to you? I'd love for you to share it with me.
