Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion;
to you our vows will be fulfilled.
You who answer prayer,
to you all people will come.
When we were overwhelmed by sins,
you forgaveour transgressions.
Blessed are those you choose
and bring near to live in your courts!
We are filled with the good things of your house,
of your holy temple.
You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds,
God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas,
who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,
who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.

Yes! These are sweet words of promise for this Sabbath morning …
And He gently quiets us. Now to learn how to be attentive and aware of His sweet activity in the midst of the craziness of our lives. Here’s some thoughts to take us there –
“Praise waits for you in Zion…” Today I got up realizing how great is the privilege I have of knowing God in a personal way. He is my life and I must come to Him daily seeking His presence and giving all of myself to Him. His promise of forgiveness and blessing is assured. The beautiful photo was breathtaking and represented to me the glory of our Lord and King. Thank you for this inspiring Psalms with the picture of His shining light.
Beth Williams says
Absolutely loved the photo. I see it as another gift from God to enjoy & enliven our senses.
God truly answers prayers! I’ve had a couple of mine answered within a day! Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
What a beautiful reminder of God’s all-powerfulness and His constant provision for us, this day and always!! Echoing what Beth Williams above said–blessed be God our Father and the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, now and forever! Amen!
