Psalm 47 Selah

 

I clap and shout
and sing

for You are awesome
in all Your ways

my Lord Most High
King of all the earth

help me understand more
Whom I praise.

**********

I can pause and praise You with understanding, for You are with me.

**********

“OH clap your hands, all you people’s! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!”

“For the LORD Most High is awesome;’He is a great King over all the earth.”

“He will choose our inheritance for us, the excellence of Jacob whom He loves.” Selah

“Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to God, sing praises!”

“For God is the King of all the earth;’sing praises with understanding.”

Psalm 9 Selah

 

I may not like
how I am feeling

but it doesn’t change
who You are

so I can worship
and always praise You

telling of Your goodness
near and far.

**********

You are with me and I can pause and worship You, no matter what.

**********

“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.”

“I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.”

“He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgement for the people in uprightness.”

“Have mercy on me, O LORD! Consider my trouble from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death, “

“that I may tell of all Your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in Your salvation.”

“Put them in fear, O LORD, that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”   Selah

Appointed

 

I’ll gather back
those driven out

saving you
who are lame

and among the peoples
of the earth

it’s to you I’ll give
praise and fame.

**********

You are with me and appoint me for more than shame.

**********

“Behold, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; I will save the lame, and gather those who were driven out; I will appoint them for praise and fame in every land where they were put to shame.”

Zephaniah 3:19 NKJV

Accepted

 

The opposite of accepted
is rejected

disapproved
denied

but in the Beloved
we’re established

accounted for
sanctified.

**********

I am accepted for You are with me.

**********

“. . . to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.”

The Hidden Things

 

You will come
and bring to light

the hidden things
of darkness

revealing counsels
of the hearts

being the One
who praises.

**********

You are with me and know me.

**********

“For I know nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord.”

“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts; and then each one’s praise will come from God.”

1 Corinthians 4:4,5 NKJV

The Goodness Of God

 

Circumcision is of
the heart and Spirit

not just according
to the flesh

for the goodness of God
leads us to repentance

and His praise is ever
on our lips.

**********

You are with me and lead me to repentance.

**********

“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”

“For He is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”

Romans 2:4,28 NKJV

Your Works Are Truth

 

All honor and glory
to You, O Lord

whose works
are always truth

Your dominion is pure
Your ways are justice

and all pride
You will undo.

**********

You establish Your rule and dominion .

“Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways are justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to abase.” Daniel 4:37 NKJV

The Stones

 

No matter what
others say

you can’t hold
it in

but must praise Me
joyfully

before the rocks
begin.

You establish my praise of You.

“But He answered and said to them, ‘I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.’ “. Luke 19:40 NKJV

Cling

 

Cling to Me
like a sash

tied
around My waist

and you
will be known

for My glory
and My praise.

You establish what I’m known for.

” ‘For as the sash clings to the waist of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me,’ says the LORD, ‘that they may become My people, for renown, for praise, and for glory; but they would not hear.’ ” Jeremiah 13:11 NKJV

The Song of the Lamb

 

On a sea of glass
mingled with fire
My overcomers
stand

singing songs
of praise and glory
to their King
their Lord, their Lamb.

Jesus establishes my song.

“And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those that have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb . . .”
