Sing A Song

My, Devotion to Him #236

Verse Passage: Psalm 33:18-19 “But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.” – NIV

It’s interesting to me how certain books can be just as important today as there were hundreds and hundreds of years ago. In the Bible there is a book called Psalms. This was in essence the hymnal for Israel. Many songs have been made and are sung in churches today. Such powerful words are hidden within.

King David is one of Israel’s most famous lyricists and composers. Bible scholars credit David with just about half of the 150 Psalms. Whether he wrote Psalm 33 is up for debate still. The first twelve verses (over half of the song) glorifies God in many ways. It praises His faithfulness, righteousness, justice, and loving kindness. It honors Him as a creator. It blesses Him as the great protector. 

However, tied up throughout the song and prominently in the forefront of the last half, is praise for God as the Spiritual Deliverer. 

Though kings, armies, horses, and governments have might and look to solve some of the earths problems, the Psalmist knows God is the only answer when it comes to spiritual problems. Nothing on earth can save souls from death or keep them alive in time of starvation whether it’s spiritual or physical. Every day God delivers His children from fates worse than death.

Every day we have the opportunity to sing along with the Psalmist an old song that still holds power within its words. 

Verse Passage: Psalm 33:21 “In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.” – NIV

Sing, sing, sing. We have trust in His Holy name. It is within Him that we find peace, wisdom, love, kindness, mercy, grace, power, holiness, forgiveness, might, boldness, courage, vision, deliverance, and many more things. 

God bless
