Read Psalm 112:1-9 (10)


Read Psalm 112:1-9 (10)

112:1 Praise the LORD! Happy are those who fear the LORD, who greatly delight in his commandments.

112:2 Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.

112:3 Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.

112:4 They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous.

112:5 It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice.

112:6 For the righteous will never be moved; they will be remembered forever.

112:7 They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the LORD.

112:8 Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

112:9 They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor.

112:10 The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.


The Psalmist paints a picture of the strength of righteousness and the weakness of wickedness.  If we build our lives in righteousness we become strong and secure - even bad news will not shake us.


"They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the LORD." - Vs 7
Help me to remember that my heart is firm and secure in you, and where I have not yet placed my heart in your hands give me the wisdom to make good changes.
