PSALM 50

You, the Mighty One, You, GOD the LORD,

speak and summons the earth

from the rising of the sun to its setting

You, the Mighty One, will shine forth (Ps 50:1-2).

 

You, GOD the LORD shall come,

You, the Mighty One shall not keep silent.

A fire shall devour before You,

And around You shall be a mighty tempest (Ps 50:3).

 

You call to the heavens above and to the earth,

That You may judge Your people, saying,

“Gather to Me my faithful ones,

The ones who made a covenant with Me by sacrifice” (Ps 50:4,5)!

 

Whoever offers praise as his sacrifice glorifies You;

And to the one who orders his conduct aright

You will show Your salvation (Ps 50:23)!

With the heavens I declare Your righteousness (Ps 50:6).

 

I offer to You a sacrifice of thanksgiving,

and perform my vows to You, the Most High,

and if I call upon You in the day of trouble;

You will deliver me, and I shall glorify You (Ps 50:14,15).

PSALM 8

…“O LORD,…how wondrous great

Is thine exalted name!

The glories of thy heav’nly state

Let men and babes proclaim” Isaac Watts (ref#102, p14 [Ps 8:1]).

 

“Yea, in the smallest works of Thy creation

A mighty voice for who can hear is put.

So shall Thy foes who hate Thy revelation

Be stilled, their mouths be shut” Arthur S. Way (ref#38, p265 [Ps 8:2]).

 

You, the Babe of Bethlehem and the Mighty GOD,

Still the enemy and the avenger

Not by Your almighty power,

But by the weakness of infants (ref#17, [Ps 8:2]).

 

“O Lord…Thy name is writ in glory

O’er all Thy works for who have eyes to see.

Stars unto stars rehearse Creation’s story,

Their Maker’s majesty” Arthur S. Way (ref#38, p265 [Ps 8:1]).

Thy name is all divine;

Thy glories round the earth are spread,

And o’er the heav’ns they shine” Isaac Watts (ref#102, p13 [Ps 8:1]).

TRIBULATION TO PRAISE

“All of life is meant to reflect the infinite value of Christ” John Piper (ref#124, p115).

FATHER, if I bring glory to CHRIST in every circumstance then my attitude should be the same in both easy and hard circumstances. I pray to choose to not let this difficult circumstance affect my countenance negatively at all.

If I am entirely void of self-love, I can be plunged into an abyss full of tribulation without exciting any emotion in myself (ref#128, p459). FATHER, give me enough confidence in You that my natural frightened, angry emotion will evaporate.

Stay my mind on You (Isa 26:3). The bride in the Song of Solomon delights in attempting to describe her divine Bridegroom (Song 5:10-16); make this my work.

Empower me to rehearse the qualities of the heavenly Bridegroom. Make it sensible to me that joy can come when I recount His excellencies which are the most important to me (ref#128, p463).   And, with the praise welling up because of such activity, push me ahead that I may exclaim, “He is superior to all attributes and qualities” Madame Guyon (ref#128, p463).

FATHER, give me a revelation of CHRIST so shocking that I focus on CHRIST and forgets my tribulation. Cause worldly thought to be silenced with the captivating love of CHIRST (ref#128, p463). May my words to CHRIST simply be, “You are altogether lovely” (Song 5:16). May I be so humbled with my relationship with CHRIST that I be unmoved in any situation.

You answered me.

You made me bold—

Mighty and resistant to temptation (Ps 138:3).

 

For though You are on high,

Yet You have respect for the lowly.

You bring me into fellowship with You.

But the proud you only recognize from a distance (Ps 138:6).

You will revive me;

You will stretch forth Your hand against my enemies,

and Your right hand will save me (Ps 138:7).

 

You will perfect that which concerns me;

Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever —

forsake not the works of Your own hands.

Don’t abandon me, for You have made me (Ps 138:8).

 

I will praise You with my whole heart;

Before armies of angels I will sing.

I will worship You and praise Your name;

Great is Your power;

You rule by Your might forever—

keeping watch on the nations (Ps 66:5,7).

 

Though You have tested me and tried me—

bringing me into Your net—

laying afflictions on my back—yet…

You have brought me out to a place of abundance (Ps 66:10-12).

 

I shall bless You—

letting the sound of my praise be heard.

Come and hear, all You who fear GOD,

and I will tell You what He has done for me (Ps 66:8,16).

 

If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,

You LORD, would not have listened.

But, truly You have listened;

You have given heed to the voice of my prayer (Ps 66:18-19).

 

I cry aloud to You,

high praise is on my tongue.

Blessed be my GOD—

He has not removed His steadfast love from me (Ps 66:17, 20)!
