Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 20


Day 20 Psalm 138:1-3, 7 The Lord’s Goodness to the Faithful
(Memorization Scripture: v. 2)

1 I will praise You with my whole heart;
Before the gods I will sing praises to You.
2 I will worship toward Your holy temple,
And praise Your name
For Your loving kindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.

3 In the day when I cried out, You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.

[Sharing] David is known for his incredible fellowship with God. In these verses, David emphasizes praising God with “my whole heart.” In our daily walk with him, it is too easy to praise Him with only part of our heart. Wholeheartedly means in EVERYTHING. Are you able to be like Paul and Silas and praise Him from the stocks and chains? Are you able to worship God in the midst of trials, temptations, and the gods that we confront every day? Verse 2 is interesting because it has to do with aligning perceptions. Are you able to adjust your field of vision from the problem to the Solution? In kindness and truth, God has shown His Word and His way to be higher than any other. Give thanks for the boldness and strength He has bestowed on you!


Day 20 詩篇138:1-3,7 歌頌耶和華的慈愛誠實
1 我要一心稱謝袮,在諸神面前歌頌袮。
2 我要向袮的聖殿下拜,為袮的慈愛和誠實稱讚袮的名;因袮使袮的話顯為大,過於袮所應許的。
3 我呼求的日子,袮就應允我,鼓勵我,使我心裡有能力。
7 我雖行在患難中,袮必將我救活。我的仇敵發怒,袮必伸手抵擋他們,袮的右手也必救我。

【心得分享】大衛與 神有著非常親密的交通。這段經文中,大衛強調自己要“一心稱謝” 神。我們每日的屬靈經歷中,非常容易落入不是“一心稱謝”主的光景。“一心稱謝”就是“在凡事上稱謝”。你是否能像保羅與西拉那樣在暗牢與捆鎖中稱謝?你是否能在難處、試煉及每天面對的偶像的勢力中稱謝?第2節經文非常重要,講到思想與意念的調轉。你是否也能將關注從問題調轉到出路?在祂的慈愛與信實中, 神顯明祂的話語與道路是高過其他的。讓我們為從祂而蒙受的勇氣和力量感恩!
