I’ve been camping out in Psalm
34 for about 4 weeks now. If this was
the only Scripture available, it would nourish me for a long time! Let’s look at some of the highlights that have
been speaking to me (and I hope you too!).
Psalm 34:6 – this poor man cried out, and the Lord heard
him, and saved him out of all his troubles
Things to think about:
· Ps. 34:1, 3 –
I will bless the Lord at all time; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Oh magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together
· Ps. 34:4, 6 -
I sought the Lord and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears. This poor
man cried out, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles
· Ps. 34:19-20 –
Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them
all. He guards all his bones; not one is broken.
· Ps. 34:8-10 -
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him. Oh
fear the Lord you saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but
those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
How to Live
· Ps. 34:12-14 –
Who is the man that desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from
evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it.
· Ps. 34:15, 17
- The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears open to their cry. The
righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their
troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as
have a contrite spirit.
21-22 – The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance
of them from the earth. Evil shall slay the wicked, and those who hate the
righteous shall be condemned. The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and
none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
