Hello #LA187 Family of Pacesetters! It’s Day 156! Sing for the joy of the Lord is our strength!
Quiz time 🙂
What did God ask Ezekiel to do with the scroll?
Hint: Ezekiel 3.
Today, we read Psalms 150 and Lamentations 5 – Ezekiel 3.
Psalms 150 – We made it to the end of Psalms! Glory! We had a #LA187Psalms day whereby we all shared our favorite Psalms (Praises and Prayers). As usual, we’ll post some of what the family shared for your benefit. It’s not too late, you can share yours in the comment box below J
We are blessed because we do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the path of sinners, not sit in the seat of the scornful. Psalms 1:1
But You, O LORD are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. Psalms 3:3
O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who has set thy glory above the heavens. Psalms 8:1
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalms 5:12
I will sing to the Lord, Because He has dealt bountifully with me. Psalms 13:6
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. Psalms 23:1
The Lord is my Light and my Salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the Stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1
O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep. Psalms 92:5
For me, God is my refuge and my fortress. Psalms 94:22.
Great is our Lord and of great power, His understanding is infinite. His understanding is beyond comprehension. Psalms 147:6
Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created. Psalms 148:5
Praise ye the Lord, praise Him in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of His power. Psalms 150:1
Of course, the post is incomplete without our cornerstone memory verse, as a family, we speak these verses into our lives daily!
We #LA187 the righteous shall flourish like palm trees,
We shall grow like cedars in Lebanon.
We are planted in the house of the Lord
We Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
We shall still bear fruit in old age;
We shall be fresh and flourishing.
Ibukun, our blessing, shared on Lamentations 5: The people of Judah were asking for a fresh start. Sometimes we’ve gone so far from God but we should never be afraid to come back, He has asked that we come boldly to obtain mercy, never let anything convince you otherwise.
Lesson learned from Ezekiel 1:12 – They went in whatever direction the spirit chose -, we must move with the spirit. Let the spirit be our compass.
From Ezekiel 2, we can see that God sent Elijah on an errand as a prophet to His people. In the same way, God is sending you to your nation, to your people. Though rebellious they may be, He says FEAR NOT!
Our talented Saxophonist, Niyi, shed some fresh light on Ezekiel 3:10 – he word has to become life in our hearts before we can deliver. We must also seek to have a personal revelation of what we are reading. This can only be done through meditating on the word. Looking at our books or work life, when we totally understand the concept of the topic or work task, delivering becomes easy for us and it looks effortless BECAUSE we understand. God is saying that it is the same with the Scriptures.
Our memory verse for today was from Psalms 150:6
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord . Praise the Lord!
Praiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiise the LORD!!!! Hallelujah! He deserves it and more! We cannot praise Him enough!
Stay FRESH and ALIVE!
