Daily Fountain 2017 - A Triumphal Song

Sunday March 19

Bible Reading:     Psalm 115: 1 - 18

Topic:         A Triumphal Song

Psalm 115 is a triumphal song, in which the victory gained is entirely ascribed to Jehovah.

The Psalmist teaches that God alone is to be glorified (vs. 1 - 3).

He also shows the vanity of idols (vs. 4 - 8) and exhorts Israel and all that fear God to trust in the Lord (vs. 9 - 11), because the Lord is good to His people and He will fulfill His gracious promises (vs. 12 - 16).

As living souls, we should praise Him because the dead cannot (vs. 17 - 18)

The Lord wants and expects us to be thankful to Him in everything (1 Thess. 5: 18)

Who are those that can thank the Lord?
They are those who can say with Paul, "I have learned in whatever state I am to be content." (Phil. 4:11); and those who do not take God's blessings for granted like the one leper out of ten (Lk. 17: 12- 18)

Furthermore He wants us to testify to His wonderful deeds (1 Chron. 16: 8). He wants us to gather in Church with thanksgiving in our hearts (Ps. 100: 4) and to praise Him with songs continually (Ps. 34: 1; 69: 30)

Therefore brethren as we go into the House of the Lord today, let us be thankful to God for His goodness and mercy.

Please sing this song as praise and prayer
I will sing unto the Lord, a joyful son
and I'll praise His Name for the Lord is Good

My God and my Father, fill my heart with songs always that I may always use my mouth to sing unto You no matter the situation and circumstance, Amen.

Memory verse:   Psalm 115: 14
"The Lord shall increase you more and more and even your children"
