Selections from Psalm 111:

Praise the LORD. 
I will extol the LORD with all my heart.
Great are the works of the LORD; 
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are his deeds, 
and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the LORD is gracious and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear him; 
he remembers his covenant forever. 
The works of his hands are faithful and just;  
all his precepts are trustworthy.
They are steadfast for ever and ever, 
done in faithfulness and uprightness.
He provided redemption for his people; 
he ordained his covenant forever— 
holy and awesome is his name.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; 
all who follow his precepts have good understanding. 
To him belongs eternal praise.

Question: As you ponder the Lord and his deeds today, what comes to mind? For what will you praise him?
To do: When I am drawn to food today, I will take five minutes to “be still and know” and ask the Lord, “Why do I want food in this moment?”  Psalm 111 says that he provides food for those who fear him and I will ask the Lord to show me if eating in this moment is a product of reverent fear and awe of him or if it is a product of my operating according to my fleshly impulses. I will choose, this day, to wait for that which he provides when my body needs food. I will relish the joy and freedom found when I eat for his glory.
Will you join me?
