Reading along with us in Psalm 31-40? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 33 (ESV)

Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!
    Praise befits the upright.
Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;
    make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!
Sing to him a new song;
    play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.

For the word of the Lord is upright,
    and all his work is done in faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice;
    the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
    and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap;
    he puts the deeps in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord;
    let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!
For he spoke, and it came to be;
    he commanded, and it stood firm....Continue Reading

  1. 18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
    on those who hope in his steadfast love,
    19 that he may deliver their soul from death
    and keep them alive in famine.👁

  2. 17 The war horse is a false hope for salvation,
    and by its great might it cannot rescue.

    I know this is probably referring to literal war, but I can’t help but think of how it relates to conflicts we face in our daily lives. Often we think arguments, insults, or passive aggressive behavior can solve our problems, but really it’s just false salvation. None of that behavior can save us from our problems, especially with others. Only trusting in God and following his example on how to treat others and deal with conflicts (that is Jesus), is the only way to effectively deal with issues.

  3. “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
    he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
    11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
    the plans of his heart to all generations.
    12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!”

    This made me think of Israel and Jerusalem and current events. I wonder if the rejection of a two-city state by the Arab nations and the intervention of “nations” to try to develop “peace” talks is God frustrating man’s plans as He implements His eventual plans and purposes in His own timing.

  4. Better to trust in the Lord who has created everything and is good and loving than any provision or solution that the world or our human efforts afford. And His greatness and provision should make us sing and trust and hope and obey…..
