We Find Strength in The Lord
1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
and will praise your name
for your love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.
3 When I called, you answered me;
you made me bold and stouthearted.

I love that last verse when it says “When I called, you answered me”. Isn’t it great to know that God is always there when we call. Even when we have traveled so far away from God trying to do our own will , he is just a call away. Even in our lowest moment he is just a call away. Isn’t it grat to have a father like that.
Psalm 27 is one of my favorites…here is a portion…
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!
Amen Suzy, well put.
I pray for the Miranda Family in their time of need I pray for a mothers heart that feels like a hole has opened up in it. I pray for the tears that ran from the fathers face yesterday with the look of total despire. I pray for a sister who lost her brother and can`t make sense of it or understands why! I pray for the emptyness his lost will bring. I pray for strenght for family and friends, in the name of Jesus.
“Before the god’s I will sing your praise”. The word “god’s” original word translates “elohiym”. In this plural usage this would be rulers, judges, divine ones, angels, or gods.
You think back to the time David wrote this, there where rulers and kings, and yes even gods, all of which you constantly gave salutations to as part of commonality in speech. They where esteemed people, deserving of praise, and others not so deserving. David however I feel when reading this, was separating himself from the norm in this Psalm. Not would he just praise God, but SING His Praise before any other. Before any other “elohiym” he would praise and honor God for His faithfulness. Oh that I may do the same with my life and what I profess. Only then, will I be strong.
