Psalm 33

Psalm 33:7-10

He gathers the waters of the sea into jars ;

he puts the deep into storehouses.

8 Let all the earth fear the LORD;

let all the people of the world revere him.

9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.

10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

I read Psalm 33 today. The beauty of His creation never seizes to amaze me. I am not sure how anyone to could see a beautiful sunset and not be blown away by His majesty and power. To me though, as I read today it is the realization that He made it all for me that takes my breath away. All for the enjoyment of His beloved (me). Not only that! Also that He, in all of of power, infinite splendor and glory, is not consumed with the wonders of His creation of this earth and world, He is consumed with love and awe over me.

The last part of Psalm 33 is beautiful.

Psalm 33:11-22

11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

13 The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men.

14 From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth;

15 He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.

16 No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.

17 A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy,

19 To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.

21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name.

22 Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.
