Lent Day 22

Scripture: Psalm 147:1-11

1 Praise the Lord.[a]

How good it is to sing praises to our God,    

how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

The Lord builds up Jerusalem;    

he gathers the exiles of Israel.

He heals the brokenhearted    

and binds up their wounds.

He determines the number of the stars    

and calls them each by name.

Great is our Lord and mighty in power;    

his understanding has no limit.

The Lord sustains the humble    

but casts the wicked to the ground.

Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;    

make music to our God on the harp.

He covers the sky with clouds;    

he supplies the earth with rain    

and makes grass grow on the hills.

He provides food for the cattle    

and for the young ravens when they call.

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,    

nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;

11 The Lord delights in those who fear him,    

who put their hope in his unfailing love.

Today's Meditation: 

The other day, I was struggling trying to figure out a word in Wordle and was down to my last guess. None of the letters I had left made any sense as I tried to even find a word to try. I started putting letters in just randomly and suddenly I saw it! “Psalm”! How could I miss it? For many years, I missed seeing the value of the Psalms in my life.

The Psalms have become invaluable in keeping me centered in my relationship with Jesus. The Bible has many lesson’s to teach me but the Psalms always seem to remind me of who is in charge and how I should respond. Today’s Psalms is no exception, and when I start or end my day with a verse like the one today ‘Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God; for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting’ my world is changed as I begin my day or night in His court and under His protection.

The Psalms help to start our conversation with God. Is there something you need to talk to Him about today? Are you brokenhearted? feel misunderstood? Take time to re-read these verses and take comfort that you can bring anything to Our Loving Father.


Thank you Father for your faithful presence in our lives and the calm it brings to each day knowing you are our King. Thank you for the times you have healed my brokenheartedness, bound my wounds, and for your steadfast love that I can place my hope in. Amen.
