I Will Pay My Vows

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay my vows before those who fear Him. The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek Him will praise the LORD. Let your heart live forever! All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations shall worship before You. For the kingdom is the LORD’S, and He rules over the nations.
Psalm 22:25-28

The Psalmist wrote, “Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous: for praise is comely for the upright,” which means that praise is beautiful on the believer. You are properly attired when you are praising the Lord. Therefore, David said, “My praise shall be upon You (The Lord) in the great assembly.”

Do What You Promised

He said, “I will pay my vows.” Apparently, David made promises to God that had not yet been kept but right there in the midst of the congregation he determined to pay them. Have you made promises to God that you have not kept? Perhaps it is time to do what you promised God that you would do. The Word of God says that it is better to never vow a vow (make a promise) to God than to vow a vow and not keep it.

Just Imagine…

The Psalmist (I believe) speaks prophetically of a future time when “All the families of the world shall worship” together before our Lord. What a grand and glorious time that will be with all the redeemed of the Lord are gathered home. What will that gathering look like? What will it sound like? What will each one gathered there feel like? We know it will happen; we just don’t know when. All that we can do now is look through binoculars of faith to that day and resolutely wait for that time to come. The King is coming!

Let us continue to praise and worship our Lord and faithfully do His work. Can I get an amen?
