Are You Covered?
Psalms 105: 1-5 & 12-15
1. O Give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. 2. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wonderous works: 3. Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. 4. Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore. 5. Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wanders, and the judgments of his mouth. 12. When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it. 13. When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people. 14. He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes: 15. Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Give thanks unto the Lord: This psalm calls the Israelites to worship, praise and obey God and to purse a deeper relationship with him. (Vs. 1-4) That is because he has miraculously directed their individual lives and their history as a nation in order to establish and preserve Israel as a people set apart for his purposes. (Vs. 5-45) This psalm aims at inspiring gratitude for the Lord's care, joy in their possession of the promised land and faithfulness to him and his Word. We can also look back and remember God's history with us, which should inspire thankfulness toward God and a greater to Christ who gave himself for us.
105:4 Seek the Lord, and his strength. We are invited not only to enjoy the Lord's presence but also to depend on him for power and strength. (1.) We all need God's strength in order to continue in our relationship with him, to live a life pleasing to him, and to tell others about him. This power comes to Christ's followers through the Holy Spirit. (2.) We must rely on God and his grace. His underserved favor and blessing. We will face spiritual weakness and defeat. We must constantly spend time in prayer, sincerely asking for his guidance and developing a deeper relationship with him.
105:15 Touch not mine anointed. In this context, the anointed ones (i.e., those set apart for a mission or purpose.) We must not assume from this verse, however, that we should listen to every person who claims to be anointed. You must be able to define who God has anointed with a purpose and vision from God.
So, I ask you today Are You Covered in God? Are you worshipping, praising, and obeying the commandments God has given us as his church? The bible says to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Can you say at every day of the week that you give God a joyful noise. We have to as God people we must spread the undying truth about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Until next time God bless and remember to be thankful for what God has done in your life.
