Oh To Be Wise Meditations
It is wonderful to be grateful and to sing your praises, LORD Most High! It is wonderful each morning to tell about your love and at night to announce how faithful you are. You thrill me, LORD, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done. You do great things, LORD. Your thoughts are too deep for an ignorant fool to know or understand. Though the wicked sprout and spread like grass, they will be pulled up by their roots. But you, O LORD, are highly honored forever. Your enemies, LORD, will surely perish; all evildoers will be scattered. But you have made me as strong as a wild ox. You have anointed me with the finest oil. My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the defeat of my wicked opponents. But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted to the LORD’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. They will be like trees that stay healthy and fruitful, even when they are old. They will declare, “The LORD is just! He is my rock! There is no evil in him!” The LORD is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Your throne, O LORD, has been firm from the beginning, and you existed before time began. The ocean is roaring, LORD! The sea is pounding hard. But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the LORD above is mightier than these!
