In The Lord’s House

Key Verse

“Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God” (Psalm 92:13).

TEXT — Psalm 92:1-15

Message

An anonymous author once wrote, “The house of the Lord is a holy place, but also a home of comfort and prosperity. The poor are made rich; the sick are made whole; the hungry are fed to the fill, and the weak are made strong. Those who live in God’s presence have no need of what the world scampers for because they have them in abundance”.

One common thing among God’s righteous people is the huge reasons for praise. God must be glorified at all times and in all places, irrespective of mood. The godly habit of praising God, the beautiful gift of eloquence and expression before Him, which reveals David’s deep inner life with the Lord, qualifies him as the sweet psalmist of Israel. It is worth noting that today’s passage paints a picture of the house of the Lord where praises, thanksgiving and honour are given unto the Lord for His faithfulness and loving kindness.

While the psalmist basks in the joy of the privilege to praise, worship and adore God, sinners, referred to as the wicked and the brutish, languish in ignorance and are faced with the prospect of eternal damnation if they do not turn away from their wickedness. The reasons to praise God are too numerous to mention. The psalmist in our text enumerates some of them. These include the greatness of God’s works, the profoundness of His wisdom and counsel from which these works issue; the outworking of His preferential providence towards the righteous and the unrighteous; the flourishing and bountifulness that characterize the life and destiny of the righteous.

Daily, we should recognise God’s power and majesty and use every godly means to praise and magnify Him wholeheartedly, with total submission to His word.

Thought for the day

A heart tuned to God is tuned for praises.
