A to Z Scripture Adventure: P is Psalm 106:1

posted in: A to Z Challenge 2015 | 2

Psalm 106 1dIf you liked the “O” verse, you are really going to love “P!” As you can see, it is exactly the same as “O” except for “Praise the Lord!” I chose these two verses because I knew how vital it would be for the students and for me to have implanted in our spirits the importance of living a life of praise. I feel I have gotten away from praising to the degree I had once embraced it. Stirring these verses up in me is serving to ignite a passion for praise once again. I hope it will do the same for you.

The context of Psalm 106:1 is completely different than Psalm 136. Psalm 106:1 rests at the beginning of a list of Israel’s sins, iniquities, and wickedness ranging from complaining to worshiping the image of a calf. His mercy endureth forever.

In the spirit of “doing” the verse, I take a moment to confess some things I have done for which I am most thankful for His mercy. I am abundantly grateful that He took my punishment for these sins on the cross when He made the ultimate sacrifice.

  • P15Worrying
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Complaining
  • Focusing on my own desires over the desires or needs of others
  • Demanding my own way
  • Being quick to judge others
  • Gossiping
  • Pride, and even at times, what could be called hatefulness

The good news is His mercy endureth forever. Every one of these sins has been repented of up to this point, as far as I know, and are under His blood. Through His grace and mercy, I have been redeemed, and most of the time these days, I act like it. Praise be to the Lord forevermore.

Today, after you visit the Prayer Wall and pray for others, you may want to thank God for His mercy provided for you for specific sins, faults, or shortcomings you are willing to confess. This is a time of soul-searching which causes our praise and thankfulness to reach depth and heights we could not  reach otherwise.

Blessings to you. Can you say this verse ten times ten times today? I hear His praises ringing around the world. His mercy endureth forever.

  1. one of my favorite verses! This can just become a mantra when times our tough. 🙂

  2. It is always good and refreshing to just thank and praise the Lord. Too, too often I get muddled down in petitions and requests and things like that and don’t spend the time I should thanking Him and praising Him. I do know, that once I start, it is hard to stop! There just never seems to be an end! That’s just how good He is! The issue, then is merely remembering to begin.
