God has a pretty sweet view from up there. Psalms 9-10 <3

What an exciting week!  It’s such a joy to have to many incredible women of God sharing their hearts on these chapters in the book of Psalms.

I pray you are as fired up about this new year as I am!  Let’s commit to letting our roots anchor deep in the Word of God in 2015!

Ready to dig in on this Marvelous Monday?

Chapter Nine:

equation

❤ Vs. 1, 11, 14: Praise is one of our greatest weapons in times of trouble. It feels normal to praise Him when the battle is over, but we should praise our way through the storm too! Number one, it confuses the enemy! In biblical times, the worshipers went before the army. They ushered in the presence of the Lord before they raised their swords to battle. They understood the importance of praising their way into battle. Praise brings glory to God and hope to the hurting!

❤ Vs. 4, 9-10: God is our refuge and our safe place. When we are living for Him, we are being upheld by His grace. Our plans will flourish when they’re firmly rooted in His will. He’s never going to leave us. He’s never going to turn His back on us.

❤ Vs. 15, 20: We are nothing without God. Mere mice in a cage full of hungry lions. Yet many times we butter ourselves up and run into the cage. When we try to take God out of the equation, things simply don’t add up. We have removed all hope and are asking to fail. We are removing His hand of protection and are asking for trouble.

Chapter Ten:

false hope

❤ Vs. 3-6: When we have it all, it’s hard to feel the “need” for God. Things are going great, money is flowing freely, health is picture perfect.. We’re comfy in our kingdom of false hope. Be very careful when things are going well. It very well could be a carefully thought out trap from the enemy. And it can all be taken away in the blink of an eye.

❤ Vs. 11-14: God sees all, knows all. The good, the bad and the oh so ugly. He sees the the tears that saturate your pillowcase, the way your face lights up when your kids throw their arms around your neck, and the moments we have carefully kept from everyone else. Nothing escapes His sight. He’s got a pretty sweet view from up there. That can be so comforting or completely terrifying, depending on where you find yourself today. As long as you woke up with a pulse this morning, it’s not too late to put your trust in God. There is nothing more freeing than surrendering your life to Christ!

  1. You covered these chapters very well. The only thing that jumped out at me in Chapter 9 that you didn’t already mention is the need to share our praises with others. When other people can see what God has done for us, it gives them hope that God will and can work in their circumstances. I’m not always great at this as I usually praise God right after he comes to my rescue, but after the dust settles I’m off on the next battle. In Chapter 10, I was surprised at how much these scriptures could apply to today’s time. I often get frustrated when people mock God and our beliefs. It is good to know we can even take this to the Lord. Thank you for sharing.

    • Thank you so much, Missy! This is such an exciting way to start the year studying God’s Word together and talking about it!

      You are absolutely right, we need to share our praise with others! The news is filled with such horrific things happening in the world around us and not enough about the positive things. God is so good and like you said, it’s easy to voice a quick, “Oh thank God” prayer when he rescues us, but it’s easy to forget Him when the dust settles. He is the same God on our mountain top, giant slaying moments and He remains the same in the depressing, dark trenches.

      I get frustrated too when people mock God and our beliefs as well. It seems everything is respected and tolerated until it comes to the name of Jesus. One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, but until then we must be on our knees as the body of Christ. ❤

      Hugs!

    The first 3 verses of chapter 9 send me into shouts of praise even now! I’mreminded that in the darkest hours of my life ,in recent years, I found the key to my survival and restoration was PRAISE
    Not just ordinary praise, but CRAZY PRAISE!He drew me into such an intimate place with Him and restored my life, my marriage, my everything to more than i could ever have imagined! And He said, “I’m going to put you on display for My Glory for the world to see what I can do”. So yes, I will praise Him and I will tell all He’s done, nothing short of wonders, I will sing praises to Him forever! Hallelujah!

    • Yes, yes, YES, Cheryl! Even David said “I will get even more undignified than this!” We need to praise Him like we mean it and not be ashamed and worried about what others think. God has brought us from different places and situations. Like when Mary poured out her year’s wages and washed Jesus’ feet, she knew where He had brought her from. And boy, was she grateful!
