Do You Ever Ask Yourselves These Questions?

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto Thy Name, O most High: to proclaim Your loving kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness every night, upon instruments of praise with a meditative sound. For You O LORD, have made me glad through Your work: I will triumph in the works of Your hands. O LORD, how great are Your works and Your thoughts are very deep.
Psalm 92:1-5

Who is it good for if I give thanks to the Lord or sing praises unto Him? Does it make God love me more? Does it build up God’s ego if He has an ego? Is the Psalmist talking about private devotions or public worship?

Do you ever ask yourself these questions? Do you do what is said in this Psalm or have you lost your desire to worship the Lord because you no longer see value in it? If it was once joyful for you to praise the Lord what has changed and why? Have you allowed the cares of this life to cause you to be silent before the Lord?

The introduction to this Psalm says that it is a Psalm for the Sabbath Day. It was probably intended for corporate worship. As the people gathered together, they would sing the songs of Zion and praise the Lord with instruments of praise. I cannot play any instrument. I can play on them, but they don’t sound like anything you have ever heard before. However, I can still do what is a “good thing.” I can still lift up my voice to give thanks to God and even sing praises to His great Name.

If you have been hurt or made sorrowful by what someone has said or done to you, the Lord wants to make you glad again as He renews His work in your life. It can happen today when you do what is “a good thing” and you begin to open your heart to your loving Savior and offer up your praise to Him again. Don’t you think it is time? Draw near to Him through worship and praise. And get close enough to Him that He can not only hear your whisper but also the “cry of your heart.” He loves you and He is in the business of restoring broken hearts. Have a blessed day, amen and amen.

Hey, I’m Trying To Get Your Attention!

If only the lost souls of this generation would listen, they would find that Jesus will be their best friend and the one and only Savior that they will need. They would find that it all will be theirs free of charge even though what He offers is priceless and precious. Perhaps through our witness of wonderful joy we can lead the unsaved to the saving knowledge of Christ.  What do you think?

Maybe Take A Closer Look

God knows our heart therefore we might as well be honest with Him.  If we have not received answers to our prayers, perhaps we need to take a close look at ourselves.  We know that God still answers prayer—that is not debatable.  We know that He still performs miracles and that is not debatable.  We know that some people still get through all of the “stuff” of this life to get to God for the miracles that they need.

Born Again

When Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again it was beyond the man to comprehend even as it is to modern man. Nicodemus would later come to understand and would become a follower of Christ. If you don’t know Christ in the full pardon of your sins; just watch those who truly believe.
