Praise the Lord!
How happy is the man who honors the
Lord with fear and finds joy in His Law!
His children will be powerful in the land.
Each family who is right will be happy.
Riches and well-being are in his house.
And his right-standing with God will last forever.
Light rises even in darkness for the one who is right.
He is kind and has loving-pity and does what is right.
Good will come to the man who is ready to give much,
and fair in what he does.
He will never be shaken.
The man who is right and good will be remembered forever.
He will not be afraid of bad news.
His heart is strong because he trusts in the Lord.
His heart will not be shaken.
He will not be afraid and will watch those lose who fight against him.
He has given much to the poor.
His right-standing with God lasts forever.
His horn will be lifted high in honor.
The sinful man will see it and be troubled and angry.
He will grind his teeth and waste away.
The desire of the sinful will come to nothing.
This Psalm is really speaking to me today. I want to walk in the path of the Lord. I want our family to be right and happy. I want us to be in right standing with God. I want to be strong of heart, not shaken, and not fearful.
Blessings to you today. I hope that this Psalm speaks to you like it is for me.
