PSALM 34

Psalm 34


1 I will extol the Lord at all times;

His praise will always be on my lips.

2 I will glory in the Lord;

let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3 Glorify the Lord with me;

let us exalt His name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and He answered me;

He delivered me from all my fears.

5 Those who look to Him are radiant;

their faces are never covered with shame.

6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard Him;

He saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,

and He delivers them.

8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;

blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

9 Fear the Lord, you His holy people,

for those who fear Him lack nothing.

10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,

but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11 Come, my children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 Whoever of you loves life

and desires to see many good days,

13 keep your tongue from evil

and your lips from telling lies.

14 Turn from evil and do good;

seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,

and His ears are attentive to their cry;

16 but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil,

to blot out their name from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;

He delivers them from all their troubles.

18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 The righteous person may have many troubles,

but the Lord delivers him from them all;

20 He protects all his bones,

not one of them will be broken.

21 Evil will slay the wicked;

the foes of the righteous will be condemned.

22 The Lord will rescue His servants;

no one who takes refuge in Him will be condemned."




God's promises to us throughout His Word secure our hope and inspire our faith. I think that, as we are challenged through hardships and circumstances in life, we have the opportunity to mold our feet deeper into the foundation of our conviction, so that we can step up into further, faith-based expectations.


"Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can.” – Dwight L. Moody

Each new morning, here we find ourselves allotted a list of choices --- God-given free will.


Beginning each new day with praise and thanks and trust to God for what lies ahead is like saying, "Lord, You are my designated driver. I am compromised. I don't want to be behind the wheel. Lord, You have charged me with fueling my vehicle, maintaining it and setting my tires on the road that leads to the address you have given me to aim for. Please help me get there safely."




"While it looks like things are out of control, behind the scenes there is a God who hasn’t surrendered His authority.” – A.W. Tozer

Morning prayer:

"Lord, thank You for this new day. Thank You for keeping me in ways that no one else can. Thank You for the hope and promises of Your Word. Like it reads in Psalm 34 - when we seek You, we find You ~ when we look to You, You cause us to be radiant ~ You encamp around us and save us from our troubles ~ through You, we lack nothing ~ You are our refuge and provider ~ Your eyes, Lord, are on us and Your ears, Lord, are attentive to us ~ You deliver us, stay close to us, save us and protect us ~ You rescue us and we can trust in You.

Lord, I give You this day. I know that I could try to guide myself, but it would be so much better with Your light leading me. Please light my path and guide me with Your wisdom this day again. Thank You, Lord, for all You have provided me with and all You have done for me."



Not traveling alone,
