29 06 2011

Psalm 92:1) [It is] good to give thanks to the LORD, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;

Psalm 92:2) To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night,

Psalm 92:3) On an instrument of ten strings, On the lute, And on the harp, With harmonious sound.

Psalm 92:4) For You, LORD, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.

Psalm 92:5) O LORD, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep.

Psalm 92:6) A senseless man does not know, Nor does a fool understand this.

Psalm 92:7) When the wicked spring up like grass, And when all the workers of iniquity flourish, [It is] that they may be destroyed forever.

Psalm 92:8) But You, LORD, [are] on high forevermore.

Psalm 92:9) For behold, Your enemies, O LORD, For behold, Your enemies shall perish; All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

Psalm 92:10) But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.

Psalm 92:11) My eye also has seen [my desire] on my enemies; My ears hear [my desire] on the wicked Who rise up against me.

Psalm 92:12) The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Psalm 92:13) Those who are planted in the house of the LORD Shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Psalm 92:14) They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing,

Psalm 92:15) To declare that the LORD is upright; [He is] my rock, and [there is] no unrighteousness in Him.

That seems to be what’s happening in the world today doesn’t it… the rich get richer, the corrupt become even more so, and we seem to be stuck in a void where we just go on trying to live as God wants us to live.  But we have to remember, no matter what physical treasure the evil and corrupt build up here on earth, they are only temporary… our true treasures are the ones we build in the eternal kingdom of heaven.  I’m not saying that it isn’t nice to have things, but we can’t let it become our primary reason for living, “Oh the newest X-Box is supposed to make it seem like you’re really there.” This is our one life and what do you want God to say at the end of it, “Well done good and faithful servant.” Or, “Away from me I never knew you.”
