Today, we’ll read Psalm 131, 133, 138, 139, 140, 141 and 143. We’re getting it done! Can you believe we are 135 days in? You’re doing GREAT, and this discipline of daily reading is so valuable!
David’s communication with the Lord was so powerful – and I imagine it was continual. Psalm 139 is so loved and familiar. I love Psalm 133:
“How wonderful, how beautiful,
when brothers and sisters get along!
It’s like costly anointing oil
flowing down head and beard,
Flowing down Aaron’s beard,
flowing down the collar of his priestly robes.
It’s like the dew on Mount Hermon
flowing down the slopes of Zion.
Yes, that’s where God commands the blessing,
ordains eternal life” (Psalm 133 MSG)
The NKJV states verse 1 this way: “How good and how pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity” and ends this way: “there the Lord commands His blessing: life forevermore.” Where does the Lord command His blessing? Where there is UNITY. Oh, friend, pray for unity everywhere you go. As far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18, Hebrews 12:14).
Every event, every emotion spoken aloud to the God of his LIFE. Lord, help me be the same!
