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. Since God loves, provides for and watches over each one of us too, to help me get a better understanding and feel for this Psalm I read back through verses 1-7, but this time I inserted my name wherever David had referred to himself. This made the passage personal for me. I was especially moved when I worked through verse 7 using my name.

I encourage you to make this Psalm personal as well. Go back and read verses 1-7 inserting your name where appropriate. I'd love to hear if there was a particular verse or phrase that impacted you, and why. Also, did anything stand out to you about God's power from this psalm? Tami
