Psalm 75:1
We give thanks to You, O God
We give thanks for Your Name is near
men tell of Your wonderful deeds…

as i read this verse, i shutter at the reality of how false it is in our American culture today. people today revel in their accomplishments, their self-worth, their abilities, their strength. More and more we dismiss the moments that are created, chosen, appointed by God. We set those aside as coincidence. we challenge our bodies to their fullest potential, forgetting the One who gave us the abilities, the strength, the power. we cry unfair when the smallest things don’t do our way and why me when the hardest issues come along. we ask God why He punishes, why He allows, why… we forget Him far too easily when things turn back to our favor and dismiss Him as a fantasy until we are desperate again. we are like the 3 year old that can only remember themselves.

Psalm 76:1&2
In Judah, God is known
His Name is great in Israel
His tent is in Salem
His dwelling place in Zion

today i pray that we would remember Him in the greatest moments, that we would look for those appointments that only He would set, that we would be thankful for the smallest blessing. today i pray that we would remember to think of others in our comings and our goings. that we would remember His death for our sins, that we would remember how much He loved and find it within to love others in the way He loves us.

Psalm 80:3
Restore us O God
make Your face shine upon us
that we may be saved…
