Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
LAST DAY, LAST NIGHT, LAST ENTRY

Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.2 The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.6 The Lord lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.7 Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.11 The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord.
This is a praising psalm, yet it also speaks to God's majesty, to his GODNESS. We forget how POWERFUL that God is because we forget he is a GOD. God is more then just a word, it's a action. God is the definition of the supernatural, impossible, creatingm powerful God. Tonight, praise God, but praise him for who and what he is. Not the little things or the tiny prayers. But praise God for his hugeness presence that he truely is.

Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.3 Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
How powerful is the last verse. Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.I hope your day was filled with this much happiness. For God dearly loves you and he can give you any victory. Tonight, Are you happy being a Christian. What makes you happy?

Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.5 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.7 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O God the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.9 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.s
To me this psalm is about praying to resist temptation. A prayer we need daily in our lives, when we let our walls down, temptations come in. The only defence is to stay in prayer at all times, and trying to get closer to God always. How do you deal with temptation, how do you prepare yourself to try not to sin, to be better today then yesterday. What is your plan of defense against sin?

Psalm 138King James Version (KJV)
138 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.3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.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.
How did your day go? Was it good and did you thank God for it? Was it bad and you need God to be closer to help you through it? Was it a backslidding day and you need God for repentance? Whatever, our life goes we need God in it to worship it. To always have a need and a desire for God. Tonight, just blog your worship.

1Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the name of the Lord; praise him, O ye servants of the Lord. 2Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God, 3Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant. 4For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure. 5For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. 6Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. 7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries. 8Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast. 9Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants. 10Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; 11Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: 12And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people. 13Thy name, O Lord, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O Lord, throughout all generations. 14For the Lord will judge his people, and he will repent himself concerning his servants. 15The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 16They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; 17They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. 18They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them. 19Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: bless the Lord, O house of Aaron: 20Bless the Lord, O house of Levi: ye that fear the Lord, bless the Lord. 21Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
It's important for you to know that God created you, and that he may not be pleased with our sin choices, but it means he is pleased with us. Our dreams, ambitions, goals, he designed us with an incredible plan for us. The fact that God made us, means he loves you. He made you special. Give God praise tonight.

1 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions: 2How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob; 3Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; 4I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, 5Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob. 6Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. 7We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. 8Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength. 9Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy. 10For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed. 11The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. 12If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore. 13For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. 14This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. 18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
Before rest, I want you to consider what God wants from you. I recently learn that God wants us to be loud and bold. We have gone silent for far to long. Where is our shout, where is our stand, where is our voice. Where do we declare our faith? Where do we teach our spiritual values and to who? If only in the church then we are silent. Tonight, I want you to find your voice and declare your faith in God. Claim it and be fierce with it! Let tomorrow be the day becomes the day the world hears your voice for God. Write your voices here to prepare.

1Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
2Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
3The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
4The Lord is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
5Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
6Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
7Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
8Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we bless you in the name of the Lord.
Sins of our youth can haunt us our entire lives if we let it. Most of us start out in church, by the time we are preteens we are big enough to make a decisions and our parents let us stay home. (This is the wrong choice parents by the way, yes forcing them can make them leave church as adults but it can keep them out of chuch never to return for the rest of their life. If they stay in church, maybe they leave when they are adults but the likely hood of the returning one day increases greatly.) Nowadays, parents don't even raise their children right anymore. They say, they are gonna do what they are gonna do, so instead of trying to prevent sins, they try to deal with the prevention of consequences of them sins. Which is much much worst. To let them children sin and then not let them have any real consequences for them is a teaching them wrong. Because them teenage years define a great deal of who we are. Because we are able to make decisions at that age. When they reach adulthood their choices will become did their foundation of Christian life lead them to make good choices or did they think they can do whatever they want and when they die they don't think they will go to hell. How did your own personal life as a teen affect your Christian walk today?

1When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
2Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.
3The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.
5They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
People socialate sacrifice with Jesus, which is true sometimes. However, there is no sacrifice when it comes to our dreams. For every vision the world offers you, there is a place equal to it in God's world too. You just have the find it in a way that God would approve of. Let's say for example your dream is to have your own night club, that's pretty worldly right? So how can that be your Godly dream you ask? There are different types of gospel music, gospel music is not just out of hymns. There is such a thing as Christian rock, it's about Jesus but the tune is different. You can dance to gospel. You can't have the alcohol though. But serve soft drinks and snacks. Let people come to jam and have fun in a gospel music dancing enviroment. I knew a girl who wanted to be an architech. Look at the bible, chapters are full of designs of buildings, the foundation, design, measurements of them building is in great detail are all in there. And not every dream has to have a Christian spin to it, if your dream is to be a teacher, doens't have to be a sunday school teacher. Go and be a teacher. The key is your dream can't have sin in it. And if you believe in God and believe that God believes in you and your dream. Then go and achieve it. Believe it, Achieve it, Live it. What is your dream? Are you on it's path now? What has been it's journey so far?

1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
3Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
Where do you look for God when you pray? To the ground on your knees in bowed position, or how about up to the heavens? The bible saids in the last days, we shall see signs. Lately, I have seen posts about seeing a horseman shape in the clouds, angels shapes and shining white lights. Some have even seen the face of Jesus in the clouds. I do 3 posts a day, morning noon and night, I go in order of the psalm chapters. So this post falls on the evening. However for this post, I want you to study the sky and tell me if you have seen any signs. Then come back to post your results. Best of luck.

1In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me.
2Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
3What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
4Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
6My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
7I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war
The battle between our spirit and our tongue is a war. We want peace but our tongue wants to fight. Our biggest thing is we just want to tell people off. Because we want our feelings to be validated. However, most of the time our feelings aren't logical; they are down right wrong! So if you let your emotions control your words- you will be in big trouble. Tonight, pray for control of your tongue. Thoughts on this, what if we just talk less? What would the world change so much?

1O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. 2For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.
The truth is God loves us more then us can even imagine. Repay God that kindness he gives to you. Convey your love for God tonight.

1When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language; 2Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion. 3The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back. 4The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs. 5What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back? 6Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs? 7Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob; 8Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
It is a strange thing to talk of the earth moving. If you think this isn't true think of these bibical examples of earth. 1) God created the earth, and everything with it by speaking it into existence. 2) God destoryed the whole earth with water, then created the rainbow. 3) Divided the Red Sea and may the dry land for passage way for Moses and the Isrealites. 4) All the whirlwinds, earthquakes, famines, pests, droughts, floods and large wild fire we have. 5) Next time God will destroy the earth with fire. I fear God more knowing that the earth trembles at him. What are you goodnight thoughts on this?

1Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation. 2The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. 3His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. 4He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. 5He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. 6He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. 7The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure. 8They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. 9He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. 10The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
God is a great god, full of mighty works. Sometimes there is no hidden meaning. Just praising God, but in the first verse it does mention praising God in assembly, which means church. So tonight, what makes your excited to praise God in church? What can you add to the service to awaken your church desires?

1O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. 2Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. 3I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. 4For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds. 5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth; 6That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me. 7God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. 8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; 9Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph. 10Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? 11Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts? 12Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. 13Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
The hidden meaning in this psalm is simple-yet enormous. This is mine, That is mine, everything is mine, saith the Lord, which means we belong to God too. You are mine is what God is saying. We are not alone, strange, abandoned, or an outcast. We belong to God. We have meaning and a purpose to our life. We are a very special exordianary people to belong to God. What is your meaning to this poem tonight?

1O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. 2Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. 3Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. 4Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore. 5Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; 6O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen. 7He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth. 8He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. 9Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; 10And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: 11Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance: 12When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it. 13When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; 14He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; 15Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. 16Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread. 17He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: 18Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: 19Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him. 20The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. 21He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: 22To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom. 23Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. 24And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies. 25He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants. 26He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen. 27They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. 28He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word. 29He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. 30Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings. 31He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts. 32He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. 33He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts. 34He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number, 35And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. 36He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength. 37He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes. 38Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them. 39He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night. 40The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. 42For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant. 43And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness: 44And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people; 45That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the Lord
This psalm goes over God providence in the old testament generations. I was thinking about the stories that my grandma and my parents have told me over the years of people's testimonies. Tonight tell some of the stories you heard of people serving God and god giving them their reward. It is good to keep these memories alive to tell your children and grand children to come. The way the world is going, it might be the only way they will know God.

1Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee. 2Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. 3For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth. 4My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread. 5By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin. 6I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert. 7I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top. 8Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me. 9For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping, 10Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down. 11My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass. 12But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations. 13Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come. 14For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof. 15So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. 16When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory. 17He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer. 18This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord. 19For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; 20To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death; 21To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem; 22When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord. 23He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days. 24I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations. 25Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. 26They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: 27But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. 28The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
Things are either good or very very bad. When something goes wrong, everything goes wrong at one time. It's so easy to get overwhelmed, but God is here and is alive. Even in these last days of evil God is an unchanging loving, always caring, be right there for you, god. God mercy and goodness doesn't get swayed away from the world, no matter what. Tonight use this online diary to tell how you feel right now in your life. Compare to your past and then compare it to your future if you endured in salvation. Hopefully, this will uplift you and give you peace.

1The Lord reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved. 2The Lord is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people. 3Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy. 4The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob. 5Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy. 6Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord, and he answered them. 7He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them. 8Thou answeredst them, O Lord our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions. 9Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy.
God is perfect. He does not make any mistakes. He is holy. Here is something that is a reminder of who God is and why we should fear him as our ruler. Let the people tremble. Tonight reflect on this passage. What is your response to "let the people tremble".? God is holy.

Psalm 96 Day 32 Evening
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
God is so worthy of our praise, yet we fall short of giving him all of what we are. It's simple God wants 100% percent of us because he gave and continue to give 100% percent of him. List ways of how we can start giving God more of us. Here are a few examples I came up with, what are yours? If you don't read bible, START, and if you already do, add a few more chapters then you normal reading time. If you pay tithes add a few more dollars, or volunteer your time to your church. Another good thing is set a time every day just for prayer, for anyone but yourself and if you pray for yourself let it be to grow spiritually stronger only or forgiveness. These are just a few suggestions what are yours?

Psalm 93 Day 31 Evening
1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
This psalm reminds me that God is king, he is royality. This whole earth is reign. Let's journal something different tonight. Write how nature itself sees and gives praise to God as a servent. How does it make you feel that even the heavens and earth are under his command because he is the king.
