Meditations in the Psalms

March 4th

Psalm 33:1-7

This psalm marks a change in David’s attitude. Up to this point, he has been dealing with discouragement and attacks by his enemies. That will not stop as we shall see in later psalms. However, at this point, his focus is on praising the Lord, which dominates the majority of the Psalms. His opening admonition is a powerful reminder of our need to center our attention upon Who God is and what God can do.

  1. The rejoicing that should characterize our relationship to the Lord – verse 1
  2. The response of praise and singing – verses 2-3
  3. The reasons for this outburst of praise – verses 4-5
  4. The reminder of the Lord’s creative power – verses 6-7

The phrase of verse 5 is a great motivation for our praise and singing to the Lord – “the earth is FULL of the goodness of the LORD.” We may not see His “goodness” because we are blinded by our own circumstances. Why not take a moment right now to thank the Lord for all His “goodness” to you!

Verse for Meditation

Verse 1 – “Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.”
