Psalm 34 - The difference that it makes to fear and trust in the Lord


Blessing, boasting in, and praising the Lord
The Lord pays attention to people who seek Him
The Lord's promise to provide for His people
How to receive good from the Lord
Righteousness leads to definite benefits from the Lord


Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

It is not enough to idly agree that peace is better. We ought to continually expend significant effort to pursue it.


Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

When I feel like I have to say something, even when the Lord doesn't want me to, I'll pray about it and trust Him to take care of it without me saying anything, so that I can have peace.

  1. It's good to hear that when our hearts call for peace, that is nothing but a desire for God's best. Sometimes my response to that desire is to separate myself from people or "lay low" until the battle blows over. But I've been thinking lately about, "blessed are the peacemakers." If there's anything we can do to promote peace in our immediate relationships, we need to have the courage to take those steps even though sometimes it can be difficult.
