Personal Praise

Today's reading: Psalm 21:1-13

David is praising God for His power, strength and sovereignty, and in so doing recognizing how God has loved, provided for and watched over him his entire life. To help me get a better understanding and feel for this Psalm I went back to verses 1-7 and as I read through them I included my name wherever David had referred to himself. This made the passage very personal for me. I was especially moved when I thought through verse 7 using my name.

I encourage you to make this Psalm personal as well. Go back and read verses 1-7 including your name where appropriate. I'd love to hear if there was a particular verse or phrase that impacted you, or if something stood out to you about God's power. Tami
