I love Psalm 34 - Let's Praise God together

Psalm 34 is such an encouraging chapter of the Bible.  Let us praise God together today, for His deliverance, the hope He gives us and for His wonderful promises:

"I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth....O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together." (verse 1,3)

There are so many beautiful promises in this psalm.

This psalm has been a comfort to me when I've been upset, when I've been afraid, when I've been under lots of pressure, when the weight of trials seemed too heavy to bear:

Here are some of the beautiful encouragements in this Psalm that I have claimed when in hard times emotionally:

"I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." (v4)

"This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles." (v6)

"The Angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them." (v7)

"The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry." (v15)

"The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles." (v17)

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all." (v19)

May we all be encouraged today, that our Heavenly Father and His Son are looking upon us with enormous love, and have weighed every trial we are to face today, and have determined that if we hold onto their outstretched Hand by faith, we can come through these trials triumphantly and They will bring out the gems They have placed amongst the dross in our characters.

Have a blessed day, full of praise for Our God.
