Each Sunday, I read a Psalm, and over recent years, they've become a real delight and joy.
This week it was Psalm 94. As usual I 'journalled' the essence of the passage. I find that indenting sentences or phrases, underlining, using capital letters etc. helps me to capture the essence and movement of the passage and therefore points me towards an appropriate praise, worship and prayer:
Sing to the LORD - not anyone else!
Tell of HIS salvation - there is no other!
Declare HIS glory - all others are dim & fading!
Great is the LORD
...to be feared above all worthless idols
...splendid, majestic, strong, beautiful.
Worship the Lord in the beauty & splendour of his holiness.
Tremble before him.
The LORD reigns. He will judge with equity - let all creation rejoice (it will be freed from man's sinful abuse).
The LORD's judgement will be righteous and a demonstration of his faithfulness.
We hope and pray that the SPLOG (St Peter's blog) will provide encouragement & spiritual food during the coronavirus crisis. It's mainly for the St Peter's church family, but everyone's welcome to read it!
