Psalm 134 🔊 1Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD. 2Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. 3The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
Today's Scripture Meaning An exhortation to bless the Lord. - We must stir up ourselves to give glory to God, and encourage ourselves to hope for mercy and grace from him. It is an excellent plan to fill up all our spare minutes with pious meditations, and prayers and praises. No time would then be a burden, nor should we murder our hours by trifling conversation and vain amusements, or by carnal indulgences. We need desire no more to make us happy, than to be blessed of the Lord. We ought to beg spiritual blessings, not only for ourselves, but for others; not only, The Lord bless me, but, The Lord bless thee; thus testifying our belief that there is enough for others as well as for us, and showing our good will to others.
Today's Scripture Application Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the Book of Psalm with Chapter 134. In our text today we see theme of worshiping God to experience the joy of His Blessings. In making application we see the Lord Blesses those who put Him first in worship. How about you? Have you experienced the joy of the Lord by putting Him first? Let us learn from our Psalm and text today to realize that our Joy and Blessing of the Lord comes when we put Him first in our Worship.
