God's Holy Words - Psalm 146
This psalm contrasts human transience and divine power. Do not trust in earthly leaders as they are finite and ill soon be gone. The Lord who created heaven and earth never changes or goes away. Yet it is the Lords heart for the weak and weary that comes closest to us in this life. His perfect power has perfect compassion comes to us all. Call out, seek your Lord in prayer, tell him you are weak and in need and he will respond in ways you cant imagine.
Put Not Your Trust in Princes
1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! 2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. 4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish.
5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, 6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; 7 who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets the prisoners free; 8 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. 9 The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 The Lord will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the Lord!
