imagining all day long

Psalm 38


They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
When we imagine things we shouldn't, we end up saying things we shouldn't. What do you imagine all day long?

We shouldn't imagine deceits.


delight yourself in the LORD

Psalm 37


Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
We need to delight in the Lord.

We should trust in Him.


abhor evil

Psalm 36


He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way [that is] not good; he abhorreth not evil.
When we need something to hate, we shouldn't hate other people or our situation. We should hate the sin in our own lives.


Let the LORD be magnified

Psalm 35


Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
This verse says, "...let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified...". That's why I'm in the habit of writing, "Let the Lord be magnified." on things I write.


charity is not easily provoked

1 Corinthians 13


Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

I've been having a problem getting angry at people lately, and I should remember this verse. I'll work on being not easily provoked.


keep your tongue from evil

Psalm 34


Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Different times throughout today I should think about keeping myself from saying evil things.


the eye of the LORD

Psalm 33


Behold, the eye of the LORD [is] upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
We should fear the Lord and hope in His mercy. It's a great promise that His eye will be on us.


in the floods of great waters

Psalm 32


For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
"The floods of great waters" makes me think of having a hard time. When we're having a hard time, that's the time to pray to the Lord.

It says, "in a time when thou mayest be found". We should pray to the Lord when we have a chance, instead of putting it off.


nevertheless, You heard

Psalm 31


For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
If we feel like we're not getting through to the Lord, we should still cry to Him, because He has great goodness "laid up for them that fear" Him.


joy comes in the morning

Psalm 30


For his anger [endureth but] a moment; in his favour [is] life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy [cometh] in the morning.

We should sing to the Lord and give Him thanks, because even when we're unhappy for a time, we have a great hope in Him.


worship the LORD

Psalm 29


Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
When we do things like singing, praying, and reading Psalms in worship meetings, we should focus on really worshiping the Lord and giving Him glory with those things.


have a time of prayer

Psalm 28


Blessed [be] the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
This Psalm talks a lot about crying to the Lord. There's a prayer meeting I usually go to that we're not having this time. I should have a time of prayer anyway.


all suffer or rejoice together

1 Corinthians 12


And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
I shouldn't think selfishly.


labor much in the Lord

We should labor very much in the Lord. We should be diligent with the work we have to do.


cry with your voice

A way to wait on the Lord and seek him is to cry with your voice.


I have trusted

Psalm 26


Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; [therefore] I shall not slide.
Today, we should think about how we should be trusting in the Lord.


him shall He teach

Psalm 25


What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way [that] he shall choose.
I want the Lord to teach me, so I should fear the Lord.


let a man examine himself

1 Corinthians 11


head coverings
the bread and cup of remembrance


But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of [that] bread, and drink of [that] cup.

have a pure heart

Psalm 24


He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
If we want to receive a blessing from the Lord, we should have a pure heart.


Believe the Lord

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
I want to be filled with all joy and peace, and to abound in hope, but the way to be like that is "in believing". We should work on believing the Lord.


He leads me

Psalm 23


He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
If we feel bad because we're not sure what to do, we should be encouraged that the Lord promised that He leads us.


forsaken for us

Psalm 22


My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my roaring?
Praise the Lord that Jesus was forsaken for us.


praise the Lord

He will hear

wealth for somebody else

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost
These are 3 things I really want in my life:
  1. righteousness
  2. peace
  3. joy


For he that in these things serveth Christ [is] acceptable to God, and approved of men.
I'll remember what these 3 things are, and to serve Christ in these things.


I will call upon the LORD

Psalm 18


I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
Even if it seems like the Lord doesn't hear me, He does, and I should keep praying.


don't pray fake

Psalm 17


Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of feigned lips.
We should think about what we pray, and make sure it's not fake.
