Good morning as we begin this new week of Freedom Fighters. Recently I went back to using “Words of Wisdom” which is the books of Psalms and Proverbs from the New Living Translation. I love this leather bound devotional.
I was reading Psalm 111 and thought to myself, I need to post this on my next Freedom Fighter. It’s a text that really preaches itself.
This psalm is a Hebrew acrostic poem; after the introductory note of praise, each line begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Every verse is packed with power.
So without any commentary, would you carefully read through this powerful Psalm.
Praise the Lord!
I will thank the Lord with all my heart
as I meet with his godly people.
2 How amazing are the deeds of the Lord!
All who delight in him should ponder them.
3 Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty.
His righteousness never fails.
4 He causes us to remember his wonderful works.
How gracious and merciful is our Lord!
5 He gives food to those who fear him;
he always remembers his covenant.
6 He has shown his great power to his people
by giving them the lands of other nations.
7 All he does is just and good,
and all his commandments are trustworthy.
8 They are forever true,
to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity.
9 He has paid a full ransom for his people.
He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever.
What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has!
10 Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom.
All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom.
Praise him forever!
May these verses speak to your heart and impact your life as they did mine. Now go back and re-read it several times. I hope it will bless your heart.
Have a great week.
Living in light of the gospel,

Think About This: The praises of the Lord are able to fill all the letters and words composed of letters, in all their possible junctures of composition; for so much doth the going through all the letters of the A B C point out unto us, he is Alpha and Omega, and all the middle letters of the A B C of praise.

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: 17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have[e] regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. -Romans 12:17-18
