Psalms 111-112 Devotional


Isn't the book of Psalms wonderful?  Yes!  Thank you for joining me for a look and discussion on Psalms 111 and 112.  Because it is legal and easy, I copy and pasted from my favorite free site:  Bible Gateway (  I highlighted my favorite parts in bold print, and will commented in green below.  I hope you join in the comments...

Psalm 111
Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
Not only is this PRAISE beautiful and classic, but "with my whole heart," is our earnest effort and desire by the power of the Holy Spirit, is it not?  And reference to location, "in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation," I take as evidence and encouragement that God's people appropriately assemble and congregate for His glory and praise and the edification of the church body.  How wonderful!
The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
His compassion, WHEW!  Glory and praise to His name, how blessed we are to be His!
He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
His instructions, commands, exhortations and wisdom are all worthy of our obedience!!
He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
Praise God for JESUS our redemption!!
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Haughtiness and rebelliousness is foolish.  Wise is the person who respects, reveres, and fears the Lord for His power, majesty, and omnipotence. 
Psalm 112
112 Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
May we delight in His Word.  May we seek to bring honor to Him, and praise His name.
His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
Verse 7 I get!  If we have our eyes upon Jesus, upon our Lord, then our fear will diminish.  GLORY to our Lord!  On my own, this time of reading and meditating I am not sure what verse 8 references to when it says "until he sees his desire upon his enemies."
He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his  teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

What is your favorite part?  Which part convicts your heart most?  What is your goal for improvement to offer your best to our Lord, in obedience?  How good are you at keeping your eyes on our Lord and His strength, and His care... rather than your problems?  (I need to improve!!)

Dear Father in Heaven, I am so grateful for Jesus by whom I am redeemed and I am Yours.  I am grateful for Your Word, and Your Holy Spirit so I have hope!  Thank you that You called me to be Yours through JESUS CHRIST, and how blessed we are that you are a capable, almighty, caring and compassionate God!  With Your help, may we be increasingly better at keeping our eyes on You and turning our fears and worries over to You.  In Jesus name I pray, amen.
