Psalm 89, 96, 100, 101, 105, 132

Psalm 89: What could I possibly write after reading that??  I hung on every word.  Overall, I want to point out that for first-time readers this is a movie trailer for tomorrow’s read.
You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
    I have sworn to David my servant,
‘I will establish your line forever
    and make your throne firm through all generations.’”
2 Samuel 7 is one of those chapters you need to put in your brain.  The rest of our year will look back to it.  For example, we KNEW the Hebrews would obtain the Promised Land BECAUSE God made a Covenant with Abraham.  BUT, God also told Abraham that He would bless all the nations through him.  The Davidic Covenant sits layered on the Abrahamic Covenant.

Davidic Covenant: This is an unconditional covenant made between God and David through which God promises David and Israel that the Messiah (Jesus Christ) would come from the lineage of David and the tribe of Judah and would establish a kingdom that would endure forever. The Davidic Covenant is unconditional because God does not place any conditions of obedience upon its fulfillment. The surety of the promises made rests solely on God’s faithfulness and does not depend at all on David or Israel’s obedience. (Thank Heavens)

You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
    I have sworn to David my servant,
‘I will establish your line forever
    and make your throne firm through all generations.’”
20 I have found David my servant;
    with my sacred oil I have anointed him.
21 My hand will sustain him;
    surely my arm will strengthen him.
22 The enemy will not get the better of him;
    the wicked will not oppress him.
27 And I will appoint him to be my firstborn,
    the most exalted of the kings of the earth.
28 I will maintain my love to him forever,
    and my covenant with him will never fail.
29 I will establish his line forever,
    his throne as long as the heavens endure.
After the Covenant tomorrow – will the people be perfect?? Not even close! BUT…BIG BUTT!!
32 I will punish their sin with the rod,
    their iniquity with flogging;
33 but I will not take my love from him,
    nor will I ever betray my faithfulness.
34 I will not violate my covenant
    or alter what my lips have uttered.
Take the time now to see the foreshadowing of Jesus.  Click here and replace David with Jesus and the Covenant of the Cross for you and me.  💜

Psalm 96:  I KNOW your pen underlined something that was JUST for you. God’s personal reminder that He is reading WITH you every day.  One scripture personally stood out to me that would not have stood out before.  It’s personal.  He is with me.  Emmanuel.

Psalm 100 : 💚

Psalm 101.  YIKES.  Did you catch the word “I”.  Usually, we read the Psalms and it is a reminder of what HE does or will do.  Well, my little grasshoppers…Ask not what your country will do for you but you will do for your country!”  Look at the “I”s on this one. Before you re-read this Psalm (like I say to my students, “that was not a question, that was a direction”) Read part of Proverb 6:
16 There are six things the Lord hates,
    seven that are detestable to him:
17         haughty eyes,
        a lying tongue,
        hands that shed innocent blood,
18         a heart that devises wicked schemes,
        feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19         a false witness who pours out lies
        and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

Psalm 105:   If I were to title this Psalm it would be “Exodus Recap”.  But ‘for me’ it is titled: “Szymanski, are you teaching God’s history to your children??” I am failing.

Psalm 132– One of the Ascent Psalms.  Psalm 120-134 were sung on the way to the Temple as they ascended the mountain to the Temple.

“Let us go to his dwelling place,
    let us worship at his footstool, saying,
‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,
    you and the ark of your might.
May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;
    may your faithful people sing for joy.’”
