Psalm 138

1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.

All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.

Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.

Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

  1. In The Midst Of Trouble

    Thou I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies , and thy right hand shall save me.

    We all seem to be walking in the midst of trouble these days, Lord.Suddenly we have enemies we never knew were enemies , people who prefer deception and violence to diplomacy. We do not understand them, and they misunderstand us. We are a hurt nation-an angry nation struggling to maintain its values while still dealing firmly with those who hate us. Guide our nation’s leaders during these difficult times, we pray. Keep our sons and daughters safe in Your arms. Bring peace and security for all back into this hurting world so we may learn the lessons of this conflict and live together in harmony.

  2. 3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.

    I will praise you o God because you alone are Lord! You heard my cries and you answered! All others that we tried before you couldn’t. Let all other gods be tossed aside, dismantled, and destroyed, they cannot answer! Instead of filling the void in our souls they leave us empty seeking for something under a false sense of security. Only you Jesus fill that void and answer our cries!

  3. 6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly; but the proud he knoweth afar off.

    God is all knowing.
    He knows our hearts and when we are down in our life, He is Up!
    Thank u Jesus for knowing us in all our ways.

    John 6:44
    44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    Amen.
    you (Jesus), are a good God.
    Safe and Righteous
    NOW iwill praise!

  4. I am not finished yet!!!!!

    8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    I am still a work in progress. I cannot stop thanking Jesus for all He has done for me, my heart cries out HALLELUJAH!!!!! You don’t know, like I know what God has done for me, He plucked me up from a muddy mess, He cleaned me up, set my foot on a solid rock!!!! Our great leaders can try fooling themselves with all this political correctness but the day will come when the highest king will have to face the King of King and give all GLORY and HONOR to HIM. Jesus is His Name. Jesus is the Lord I serve. Praise be to God. Thank you Jesus for you are not done with me yet!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. (Psalms 138:3, 7 KJV)
    All alone in a dark bedroom I called upon You, cried out for Help, cried out for Salvation, cried out for deliverance…and only YOU LORD came to my rescue. My enemies seen the Salvation of The Lord, and NOW believe!! Glory to GOD!!!

  6. 8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    I know I am far from being where I need to be, but I know He hasn’t given up on me, and He is faithful and will continue to mold and shape me to become the man that He has intended for me to become, as long as I allow Him to.

  7. THANK YOU JESUS

    1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
    2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

    Each person is BLESSED with their own unique testimony; the story about where GOD brought us from, about what GOD brought us through and about what GOD protected us from. No person can share my story like me, and no person can share your story like you. Our testimony is so powerful, that through the BLOOD of JESUS and our confession of the MERCY of GOD we WIN.

    We value and protect the things we are “Thankful” for. Our testimony is such a valuable gift from GOD. Our entire lives should be invested in protecting the GRACE and MERCY that GOD has placed on each of us. We overcome temptation and sin through Praise which is the fruit of thanksgiving. Occasionally this will be a painful but necessary process.

    Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

    Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

    Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    The fruit and value of protecting my testimony should outweigh the pleasure of sin or the decay of grudges. Participation in either of these FAITH destroying traits will cost me my testimony. I am responsible to OBEY and FORGIVE, to protect my testimony.

    A life of “Thanking JESUS” for all that he has done for us will keep us in covenant relationship with JESUS.

    The MSG version clearly states the attitude of being “THANKFUL”

    1-3 Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”
    Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
    I kneel in worship facing your holy temple
    and say it again: “Thank you!”
    Thank you for your love,
    thank you for your faithfulness;

    NOW to FINISH our COURSE with our TEStIMONY and PRAISE through “THANKSGIVING”

  8. 2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

    Isaiah 63:7 (KJV)
    I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord , and the praises of the Lord , according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.

    He has truly shown me a multitude of lovingkindnesses; I could never list them all but I praise Him for them!

  9. There are some awesome verses today, but. . .

    1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

    Praising God in front of everything, not just in a private place. It is out in the open where persecution happens. It is out in the open where souls are reached. It is only when we show God in front of the Godless that they come to realize they need Him!

    SEE YOU AT SERRANO RANCH!!!!! GONNA GET SOME PRAISE ON OUT IN THE OPEN!!!!!

  10. 1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
    Hallelujah ..I will praise him no matter the place. I miss church because of work sometimes do I take the chance to give testimony there. I sing his praises while I work.To lift my heart and let God know that I may not be in church but still using that time to praise him.. give thanks that I have a job. That I know he blessed me with it. He is an awesome God!

  11. ILove to eat the Word of God

    Pride pushes away, Humility draws near.

    6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

    Cain and Abel are perfect examples of this scripture.

    And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. (Genesis 4:4, 5 KJV)

    Cain was proud therefore when God rejected his plan he became angry.

    The root of anger is pride. If we always find anger in our heart we must consider that pride is consuming us. God will keep his distance from anger, but will be close to the humble.

  12. 1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

    Sports fanatics paint their faces, take their shirts off, scream at the top of their lungs, and act like lunatics at game day. Everywhere they go they tell the good, or bad news of their team. They feel defeated when they lose, and victorious When their team wins.

    Today is game day. Let’s put on our game faces and praise God before the gods of this world! No sports fanatic should Never out praise a child of God!

    After all the truth is we have already won!

  13. 1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
    2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

    The song ,I’m not ashamed, comes to mind. I will not be ashamed of the name of Jesus. Proclaim that wonderful name. He is might!

  14. 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

    HALLELUJAH we do not have to fight our battles alone!!! He gives us the strength to keep going, HE GIVES IS THE VICTORY!!!!!! And our enemies who continually try to tear us down…
    Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
    He has our back! He’s always gonna protect us always gonna save us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!!

  16. 2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

    3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul

    I thank God for the truth,for all the great people of God that have helped me in my walk with God.
    So thankful that I serve a prayer answering God,He gives me strenghth when things in life try to get me down!

    I praise my great God for all He has done!!!

  17. 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

    8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    I’m reminded of a song, “it ain’t over until God says it’s over.” It’s easy to focus on what’s not done *yet*, what’s still imperfect, broken, incomplete, yet it’s not the process but the God of the process, the perfect Jesus, that we should focus on. The more we look to Him, the more we will be like Him. They say a watched pot never boils; we can translate this idea to the spiritual as well: obsessing about the process not only doesn’t help but it hurts our walk with God. God is well able to perfect that which concerneth us, even while we walk in the midst of trouble. It’s not time to fret, it’s time to praise!

    1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

    2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

  18. I love how the psalmist says in vs 1 that he will praise the Lord, with all his heart; “before the “gods” I will sing your praise.” Its easy to skim past this starter verse and simply see that he wants to praise the Lord. He adds that even in the face of the enemy “gods” or false gods, he’s going to sing to the Lord praise. He identifies the presence of the enemy surounding him, and instead of getting scared or embarrased, he makes the conscience decision to praise the Lord in the midst of it all. In vs 7 the psalmist states that though he walks in the midst of trouble, He will preserve his life (paraphrasing). This expresses the walk of a Christian, that even though the enemy might be all around us, the Lord has His hand upon us, and a hedge of protection. As long as we are under his covering, under the blood, and in position we are not bound up, but loosed, and have every right to praise Him “for his love and his faithfulness.” (vs2). We can stand secure, and knowledgable that the Lord will fulfill his purpose for us (8) just as this psalmist stands on his promises. “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” (Php 1:6). Thank you Jesus for giving me the strength and boldness to praise you through every trail, you are my strength when I am weak, my joy when I am low. Thank you for watching over those who surrended and humbled themselves before you, In our weakness you are strong. Mighty God!

  19. This chapter illustrates supreme. God (Jesus) and his Word is above all; “All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth”. One is wise to recognize and worship the creator; “Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  20. 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

    8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    Thankful for the promises of restoration and strength, because sometimes to continue perfecting us, we have to go through some things, but we can stand on the promises of God which are yea and amen!

  21. 8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    He will not forsake us.
    We are his ministry. We are the work of the hands of God almighty.
    We are made after his creative order. Our hands should then also create children of God.
    What are we creating? Is what we are creating bringing glory to God or helping someone’s
    Soul to make it to heaven?

  22. 1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

    2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

  23. v2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth : for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

    “Give all your worries and cares to GOD for HE cares for you. Attack your fears and worries with the promises of GOD. HIS word is true and HE IS FAITHFUL! HE IS GOD ALL MIGHTY, and we need no other reason than HIS MAJESTY AND GREATNESS to
    worship HIM.

    iPray
    iWorship

  24. 8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    I am a work in progress. The work of His hands. I have been through some stuff but only to mold me in what He is creating. He will not leave His work unfinished but will fulfill the purpose. Molding and sculpting like an artist with a chisel and hammer on His hands and a lot of fire but He still not done but will perfect His work.

    Philippians 1:6
    Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

  25. The Lord has a plan for me and in his time it will come to pass. Thank you Lord for giving me the stregth I need to overcome everyday expectancies. Thank you for your love and kindness when I don’t deserve it. Thank you for you mercy Lord.

  26. Verses 1-3 MSG:

    “Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”
    Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
    I kneel in worship facing your holy temple
    and say it again: “Thank you!”
    Thank you for your love,
    thank you for your faithfulness;
    Most holy is your name,
    most holy is your Word.
    The moment I called out, you stepped in;
    you made my life large with strength.”

    I just want to say thank you Lord. My God is so awesome! Like the beginning of this Psalm says “Everything in me says “Thank you!”.

  27. 8 The LORD will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O LORD,endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me. (NLT)

    Your will be done in my life God. I know I am loved by you Jesus and that is all and enough for me. There is none like you…!

  28. HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!!
    THANK YOU!!! JESUS!!!
    1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
    JESUS!!! I LOVE YOU!!! YOU ARE MY ALL AND YES I WILL PRAISE YOU FOR EVER!!! I LOVE YOU DADDY!!! YES I WILL PRAISE YOU BEFORE THE WHOLE WORLD (little gods)!!! HALELUJAH!!! GRACIAS PADRE!!!

  29. In this scripture, coinsides with what Jesus says, that the work he began in us he will perfect…..

    8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

    “Now”……………..

  30. 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

    I’m glad that when no one else can be found, my God is there for me
