Praying the Psalms with Luther

READ: Ezekiel 33 Psalm 84 Hebrews 6:9-20

The 84th Psalm is a Psalm of comfort. It praises God’s Word highly over all things and exhorts us to gladly give up all good things – glory, power, joy, and whatever we desire – that we may hold onto God’s Word. And if we should be like the doorkeeper, that is, the least of those in the Temple, this would still be far better than to sit in all the castles of the godless. For God’s Word gives victory, salvation, grace, glory, and all good things. Oh, how blessed are those who believe this and then keep it! But where are they? Even if they were slandered and despised, they would find the whole world to be theirs in abundance, prepared for them.

PRAY: Praise and thanks to You, Lord, our God because You have granted us Your Word which shows us the way of salvation. By Your Holy Spirit work effectually is us through this Your Word, that it may prove in us a living and fruitful seed bringing a hundredfold, and that the fruit remain to eternal life. Amen.
