chronological day 185 :)

A few Psalms today!  Please read Psalm 42, 43, 44, 45, and 46.  Though I am mostly reading from the Message translation this year, I like to compare the NKJV (another favorite) sometimes.  What’s your favorite translation?

185

Where the NKJV says “I remember”, the MSG says “I rehearse”.  Look at how this one word changes the feel of the verse in a good way:

“I rehearse everything I know of you” (Psalm 42:6)

Rehearse means to preparepractice, read through, run through/over, go over. I like the idea that we can rehearse everything we know about God – especially because I tend to “rehearse” and “replay” all my failures or regrets. We need to replay or rehearse God’s faithfulness!

Let’s try it: God is good, kind, generous, loving, patient, wise. God is good, kind, generous, loving, patient, wise. God is good, kind, generous, loving, patient, wise…. What do you know of God?  Do you need to remind yourself of these traits and rehearse?
