The Journey

The Journey Week 78… and hallelujah…

The Journey readings finished up the Psalms this week… and through the words of the psalmists the One revealed… is the One who delivers…

Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men…
Psalm 140:1 Amp
Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
Psalm 140:2 Amp

Surprised by the psalmists voice demanding deliverance…
deliverance from evil…
deliverance from the enemy…
deliverance from self…

Set a guard, O Lord, before my mouth;
keep watch at the door of my lips.
Incline my heart not to submit or consent to any evil thing
or to be occupied with deeds of wickedness
with men who work iniquity; and let me not eat their dainties.
Psalm 141:3-4 Amp

The psalmist knows the Lord as the One who has anointed him…
the one who has set him in a place of conflict…

The psalmist knows the Lord’s righteousness…
and He will not abandon His people…

I cried to You, O Lord; I said, You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.
Psalm 142:5 Amp
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness.
Psalm 145:8 Amp
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth.
Psalm 145:18
The Lord is the One who delivers…
who hears our cries…
who responds with compassion…
He has lifted up a horn for His people [giving power, prosperity,
dignity, and preeminence], a song of praise for all His godly ones,
for the people of Israel, who are near to Him. Praise the Lord!
(Hallelujah!)
Psalm 148:14 Amp
The horn He has lifted… bringing power… prosperity…. dignity… and preeminence… to His people… is Jesus… the One who brings the ultimate deliverance… from sin and death… to eternal life… He is a song of praise for all His godly ones…
Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
Psalm 150:6 Amp
