Happy Are Those Who Fear the Lord!
Morning! I read this psalm a few minutes ago and was struck by Father’s faithfulness to any people who simply fear Him and delight in His commands. He absolutely gives a “good measure, shaken together, and running over”! The amazing thing is that some have seen this scripture ever-increasingly “fulfilled in our hearing.” Do pause for a moment with me to thank God that He invited us into this life and then heaped His kindness on us, for no other reason than He is love! : )—dan
Praise the Lord!
Happy are those who fear the Lord,
who greatly delight in His commandments.
Their descendants will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures forever.
They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright;
they are gracious, merciful, and righteous.
It is well with those who deal generously and lend,
who conduct their affairs with justice.
For the righteous will never be moved;
they will be remembered forever.
They are not afraid of evil tidings;
their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord.
Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid;
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.
They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever;
their horn is exalted in honor.
The wicked see it and are angry;
they gnash their teeth and melt away;
the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.
