Welcome back to Scripture Soak November! Day 2 is Psalm 9!
I chose Psalm 9:1
I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds (ESV)
In my study bible, it mentions that the background was talking about Gods interest in the oppressed people in times of trouble. Chapter 9 recounts how he was there for them during the times of oppression during the success of the Davidic king.
I love songs of praise! I loved looking at it the way that it was worded in the ESV because it said I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. It encourages me, during times of trouble and oppression in my own life, to call on the Lord and recount the deeds that he has done in my life. If I look back on what he has done, it makes me grateful and makes me realize that he has been there all along, even in times of trouble when I feel like maybe he isn't. We all do sometimes.
Kneeling in Prayer:
Lord put a song of praise in my heart, always. Remind me of your deeds, so I can remember in times of trouble when you seemed far away, you were right there in the middle of it. Thank you for every single blessing that you have given me in my life, you are wonderful! Thank you!
