Psalms — Psalm 66 – A Praiseworthy God!

Day 2666: This is a happy 666!

Scripture:  Shout praise to God all the earth! Sing praise about the glory of His name. Make His praise glorious. Say to God: “How awesome are Your works! Because of Your great strength Your enemies cringe before You.”

Come and see the awesome works of God on behalf of human beings: He turned the sea into dry land. Israel crossed the river on foot; let us rejoice in Him. He rules by His power forever, His eyes watching over the nations. Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves.

Bless our God, people, and let the sound of His praise be heard. He gives us life and does not permit our feet to slip. For You, God, tested us, to purify us like fine silver. Come and listen, all of you who fear God, and I will tell you what He did for me.

I called aloud to Him and praised Him with my tongue. Were I to cherish iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not listen to me. Surely God has heard, and He paid attention to my prayers. Blessed be God, who did not turn away my prayers nor His gracious love from me!   Excerpts from Psalm 66

Thoughts/questions: The above words are sufficient and my simple thought is this. Want your prayers heard and paid attention to? Follow the Psalmist advice – Were I to cherish iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not listen to me. 

Let’s all Shout praise to God all the earth! For He IS worthy!

Suggested prayer: Almighty God, You truly are worthy of ALL of my praise . . .
