Psalm 115

1 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?

3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

9 O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.

18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.

  1. See it doesn’t matter about your profolio or your economical status. It matters in your love walk with Christ Jesus. He will bless us and an increase us in Jesus name. Increased in many ways are possible, such as; family, new members, health, prosperity, ministries, creativity, wisdom, talents and so much more.

    3 John 1:2

    Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

    “Expecting Increase”……………………..

  2. There is no name greater than the name of Jesus, and there is no God greater than Jesus. He is our everything, our all in all.

  3. HALELUJAH!!!

  4. 4. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

    7. They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

    8. They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

    Those who worship idols become idle! Idols have no power or authority, so they cannot give it to those who worship them. On the other hand, we worship the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Creator of the universe who has all power and authority and gives it to those who carry His Name to tread on serpents and scorpions without harm and to cast out spirits such as negativity and poverty.

    Our God is not idle, nor can we be. Let’s be active and Impact Fort Worth in Jesus Name!

  5. 1 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

    Most certainly, not unto us, we cannot make all life about us. This is the problem with most people everything is about them. We must understand if there is any glory to be given it is to be given unto the Lord Jesus Christ, The name of Jesus is important to us today to give glory and honor unto that great Name. If we are to obtain mercy, we will get that mercy through the Name of Jesus Christ.
    What is truth? The great question was asked by Pontius Pilate only to give the people what they want. We must study the Word of God if we wish to know truth, truth is right at our finger tips. Many people look for truth in the wrong places, when it can be found in their bible. Most bibles are only laying in houses collecting dust, when truth is in the bounds of that dust covered book.
    Now the rest of the story, let’s not make all things about us, but about him (Lord Jesus Christ). Let’s let the selfish spirit go and cling to the spirit that is about everybody. We cannot be workers in the kingdom of God if we have a spirit of selfishness.
    We should be given to hospitality and to the welfare of others.
    GOD BLESS POFW!!

    “Apostolic Authority Awareness Month”

    Psalms 115:13-16 KJV He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great. (14) The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. (15) Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth. (16) The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

    This has to be Apostolic Authority Awareness Month because God has been pounding this principle into his people’s hearts week in and week out. We shall INCREASE, we are BLESSED, and He has GIVEN us the earth. God rules the heavens but we rule the earth. If there is something we want accomplished on earth, then we have to do it. If there is a promise of God that we need as we walk on this earth then we have to take it…Take it from who?… Glad you asked. Take it from the one who stole it from you in the first place. God gave it, man had it, the devil stole it, Jesus died for it, and now the question is, “What are you going to do with it?” The answer should be to take it back by force. TAKE IT FROM THE eNEMY. If you want your healing, Then take it. Remember, you’re not taking it from God because He already gave it. You’re taking it back from the thief. “By His stripes we were healed.” BOOM!

    Everyone join together in Apostolic Authority Awareness Month and lets take back our stuff!

  7. 3, “But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.”
    4, “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.”
    5, “They have mouths, but speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:”
    6, “They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:”
    7, “They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.”

    This made me think of the song we sang last night.
    Our God is an awesome God
    Our God is an awesome God
    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns, He reigns
    He’s an awesome God

    No one like Jehovah God
    No one like Jehovah God
    No one like Jehovah God
    He reigns, He reigns
    He’s an awesome God

    He’s the one true Living God
    He’s the one true Living God
    He’s the one true Living God
    He reigns, He reigns
    He’s an awesome God

    I’m so thankful that I know and serve the ONE TRUE LIVING GOD. He is my help and shield. He can do whatever He pleases.

  8. 9 O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.
    10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

    I feel so honored to know that my God is trustworthy. I find no merit in myself because sometime self defies who we are in Him, but thanks be to God that in those times His mercy leads us to find ourselves if we want to.

    #humbled

  9. 1 Not for our sake, God, no, not for our sake, but for your name’s sake, show your glory. Do it on account of your merciful love, do it on account of your faithful ways. 2 Do it so none of the nations can say, “Where now, oh where is their God?” 3 Our God is in heaven doing whatever he wants to do. 4 Their gods are metal and wood, handmade in a basement shop: 5 Carved mouths that can’t talk, painted eyes that can’t see, 6 Tin ears that can’t hear, molded noses that can’t smell, 7 Hands that can’t grasp, feet that can’t walk or run, throats that never utter a sound. 8 Those who make them have become just like them, have become just like the gods they trust (MSG)

    I am so thankful that my GOD is not dead. My God is alive and hears our prayers. It really saddens me when at work and hearing people talk about their Gods. It is very easy for us to make idols if we are not careful. I want to worship the one and only true God!!

  10. WE ARE MORE AND WE ARE MIGHTIER

    11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.
    12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
    13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.
    14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
    15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

    WOW!

    What an affirmation of the WORD from the LORD on Sunday Night to The POFW!

    The very simple key to victory and success is to “FEAR” the LORD. Honor him with all that we have and are, respect HIM through obeying HIS WORD. Follow HIM as a ONE WAY path.

    He is mindful of us. We are constantly on HIS mind, he is our loving father. He will BLESS us as a rich father, he will increase us with divine opportunity through divine appointment.

    Receive this WORD from the LORD today:

    15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

    Affirming the WORD from Sunday 7/27/14

    Psalms 105:24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

    Exodus 1:7 And the children of Israel (The POFW) were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.
    8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.
    9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

    GOSHEN
    Genesis 47:1 Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

    Genesis 47:6 The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

    Genesis 47:27 And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

    The LORD JESUS bless you REAL good. Don’t waste your valuable resources on any idol that cannot hear, see or speak.

  11. 4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

    5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

    6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

    7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

    8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

    Without the revelation and the truth if who the one true God is you are powerless.
    I’ve never heard of Buddha having miracles.
    I’ve never heard of Allah filling anyone with his spirit. I’ve never seen a job or money save someone’s soul. Baal can never answer his prophets because he is dead. My God is alive and in the business of saving his people. We named our son Michael because it means “who is like God” but it also poses the question ” who is like God?”. We turkey serve the only one that can save out souls. I’m a Pentecostal!

  12. O GOD, remember us and bless us, bless the families of Israel and Aaron. And let GOD bless all who fear GOD — bless the small, bless the great. Oh, let GOD enlarge your families— giving growth to you, growth to your children. May you be blessed by GOD, by GOD, who made heaven and earth. The heaven of heavens is for GOD, but he put us in charge of the earth. (‭Psalm‬ ‭115‬:‭12-16‬ MSG)
    Our families and children have been enlarged to take the name of Jesus into the city of Fort Worth! We Have been given of GOD, DOMINION, to take this CITYfor His KINGDOM!
    No fear, but BOLDNESS!!!! We are covering the fields taking one step at a time and sowing seeds!! We are One in Jesus Christ!

    Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭28‬:‭3‬ KJV)

    To GOD be the GLORY!!!

  13. 11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

    God is our healer, our protecter, and our deliver. There is nothing our God cannot do, we must put all of our trust in him.

  14. 12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

    Our God is like no other god!!!! For He is attentive to us. He is concern for us. He cares for us. He blesses us at going in and the going out. His promises are Yeah and AMEN. There is no substitute for OUR LORD AND SAVIOR.

  15. “Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.” The Lord (Jesus) will do as his word says, if one will simply obey his word. What a mighty God we serve, thank God for his word! God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all, in Jesus name, Amen.

  16. 13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

    14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

    15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

    16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

    Conformation of everything that was preached last night! We are more, we are mightier! We are blessed, we are multiplied! God is so good!

  17. O Israel, trust the LORD! He is your helper and your shield. (‭Psalms‬ ‭115‬:‭9‬ NLT

    The LORD remembers us and will bless us. He will bless the people of Israel and bless the priests, the descendants of Aaron. (‭Psalms‬ ‭115‬:‭12‬ NLT)

    Israel just hold on. Keep on fighting we all know who’s going to win when the battle is over. With God on your side nobody can defeat you! Nobody.
    So isreal fear not because God is with you just stand bold and stand strong. And stay faithful to your God. He will lead you out of fear of war and defeat. We will be victorious. In Jesus name.
    That’s goes for everybody. Fear not God is with you!!!

  18. O Israel, trust and take refuge in the Lord! [Lean on, rely on, and be confident in Him!] He is their Help and their Shield. (‭Psalm‬ ‭115‬:‭9‬ AMP)

    Trust in the Lord for He is our help. We cannot make it on our own. We alone do not have enough wisdom. We don’t know it all but trust and rely on the One who does. He name is Jesus!! 

    Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭16‬ ESV)

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭5-6‬ ESV)

  19. 11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

    12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

    13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

    14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

    This just goes right along with what pastor preached last night. We are more! We will fill the land, we are mightier… He will bless them that fear The Lord. Our God is alive and well.

  20. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
    Thier gods are deaf ddumb and mute why would anyone want to serve that. When our God hears us talks to us takes care of us praise the Lord our God is real

  21. 1-2 Not for our sake, God, no, not for our sake, but for your name’s sake, show your glory. Do it on account of your merciful love, do it on account of your faithful ways. MSG

    What is our purpose for serving the Lord? Why do we give of our resources; time, talent and treasure? Sometimes we may feel a duty to give of our resources. However, the true liberty of serving the Lord comes from our willingness to give for His glory; not ours. We are all vessels of the Lord and generally we have a servant’s heart and are willing to do the Lord’s work.

    One of my favorite times of the year is when we have a Christmas trip to Mattel for the children. It never fails there are some children who have a giver’s heart. Being in the back with the children helping them choose the appropriate amount of toys for their allotted budget highlights the two types of people; givers and takers. When a child chooses; of their own free will to choose a gift they intend to give to a sibling that was unable to make the trip to Mattel we witness – first hand – what God referred to as little children.

    Mathew Henry said it best:
    18:1-6 Christ spoke many words of his sufferings, but only one of his glory; yet the disciples fasten upon that, and overlook the others. Many love to hear and speak of privileges and glory, who are willing to pass by the thoughts of work and trouble. Our Lord set a little child before them, solemnly assuring them, that unless they were converted and made like little children, they could not enter his kingdom. Children, when very young, do not desire authority, do not regard outward distinctions, are free from malice, are teachable, and willingly dependent on their parents. It is true that they soon begin to show other dispositions, and other ideas are taught them at an early age; but these are marks of childhood, and render them proper emblems of the lowly minds of true Christians. Surely we need to be daily renewed in the spirit of our minds, that we may become simple and humble, as little children, and willing to be the least of all.

  22. 11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

    Trust in The Lord, I thank Him for being my shield and strength.

  23. The sinner cannot praise God.

    Psalms 115:17
    The dead do not praise the Lord, Nor do any who go down into silence;

    This is why it is important to reach out to the lost. Many want to praise The Lord but can’t. We have to pray for them and search for them in order to break the yoke of sin. Sin inhibits praise. Once we reveal their sin to them through the law and righteousness of God they are able to be reached by grace.

    May revival come to the backslider.

  24. 13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.
    14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
    15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

    We’re blessed in the city, were blessed in the field. We’re blessed when we come and when we go. This is phrase from a song that has been an inspiration in my life. When we think ourselves blessed. We are. I am blessed beyond compare. God has provide for me my every need. Right on time. He is so good to me.

  25. 8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

    We become like the things we worship in this life. Who do you serve? What do you worship?

    Jesus is Lord of all!

  26. v1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake .

    HE is a jealous GOD, and HE will not share HIS GLORY or WORSHIP with another.
    The things of this world will not last ,
    but our GREAT LIVING GOD IS ETERNAL.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap
    iRejoice

  27. Not unto us 1. NOT unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake. 3. But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. 1 Chron. 16 : 26 Dan. 4 : 35 15. Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth. 18. But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD. Ps. 113 : 2 I AM VICTORIOUS, I AM VICTORIOUS, YES I AM !!!!

  28. Verse 13 CEV says “All who worship the LORD, no matter who they are, will receive his blessing.” It doesn’t say only the rich or only the popular…..it says ALL (you and me) will receive his blessing, if we worship the LORD. Trust in the one who can help and protect you….Jesus is his name!

  29. Thick Skinned

    9 O Israel, trust thou in the Lord:
    he is their help and their shield.
    (Psalms 115:9 KJVStrongs)

    The word for shield here also means the thick scaly hide of a crocodile.

    The back skin of a crocodile can deflect spears, arrows, and bullets. Some cultures consider the skin as a symbol of strength, and valor. It is very valuable for its durability.

    The Lord is our shield, our crocodile skin if you will. When we are covered by him it deflects the harsh arrows of the enemy.

    The skin also protects against water loss.

    The Lord is our shield, and he is the living water. Our refreshing comes from him!

    Crocodiles have sensory pores that help to detect change in water pressure, and help capture their prey.

    The Lord gives discernment, and understanding. When we are covered by the Lord he helps us to know our season, and help us capture, or rather rescue souls from the enemy.

  30. 3 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

    14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
    God’s word does not lie and if we fear him he will bless us! God will give us increase as well as our children. Thank you Jesus

  31. 13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

    14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

    15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

    The Lord shall increase you MORE and MORE you and your children !! Glory to God !! I am blessed of The Lord !!!

  32. 3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. 4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

    My husband and I went to the museum in March. When we were there we saw many idols and fake gods from all over the world. Our God can perform miracles. Our God can show himself mighty. What can their gods do? Only fall.

    Jesus is mighty! He is our master, savior, and friend!

  33. Our End

    17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.

    18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.

    As children of God, our end is to be life not death, blessing not cursing, praise not silence. The enemy may bring us the tale of what awaits the dead but he conveniently leaves out the destiny God offers us. Just as we must choose victorious thinking instead of a poverty mentality, we as children of God must choose to spend eternity at home with God rather than as lost prodigals ensnared at the devil’s house. When we stand up and declare our birth right as God’s children, it changes our living and thinking in our lives right now. Our time of living as children of God starts with today, the day of salvation, and continues on into eternity, so why choose anything else?

    Psalm 118:17
    I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

    Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

  34. 1 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

    All belongs to God, I give God the honor and the glory now and forever.

  35. 1 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.
    2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?

    When we take the focus from ourselves and “our accomplishments”, and put the focus on Him and ALL HE HAS and IS DOING, then the lost are able to see where our Jesus is… right here with us and with them too, keeping them, calling them to him.

  36. He will bless them who fear the Lord, both small and great.

    Those who obey and fear the Lord will receive His promises. We will receive abundantly and our children as well.
